Re: Talk of Bryan Singer's BSG project resurfaces
In the new BattleStar Galactica, we got the same damn cheese. Even worse, in the later series, the "Cylons" were exterminated despite being people, except for the few who earned the right to exist by actively engaging in the annihilation of their fellows.
Or from the viewpoint of the humans who just lost their worlds and most of their military capability, then actually managed to overcome their enmity towards a race when some of the members managed to prove to them that there was a bit more to them than "DESTROY ALL HUMANS!" A viewpoint that was not unreasonable until then.
That is a weird lense you view the world through, stj. But then, you do pine for Commie dictators.
