OK, serious question:

Does anybody else find it interesting that the TOS Enterprise looks like a head, a torso, and two legs?
So does the Battlestar Galactica, but in a different way. The animal metaphor for these vessels is something that I think aridas sofia used to talk about.
Which gives me an idea for a new adult novelty toy: a blow-up U.S.S. Exeter! With realistic shuttlebay!

Huh? HUH?! C'mon, these things'll sell like hotcakes!
With special "Anti-Matter Lube!!"

If you are referring to the Sci-Fi Channel's godawful and goddamned remake of the classic space opera, I would concur. Judging by that description and the implicit sexual content in the remake(Galactica 1980 x 2), I wouldn't be surprised.

Ronald Moore certainly has a dirty mind.
The contours of both Galacticas are nearly identical.
