Yeah, I was totally satisfied with the character arcs in nuBSG.
One example was nuStarbuck's arc.
If you consult the unproduced sequel in Galactica 1980
to "The Return of Starbuck", entitled "Wheel of Fire"
, one finds that classic Starbuck would have joined the Ship Of Lights, had that episode been made. Classic Starbuck would have ascended to a higher plane of existence.
Ascending to a higher plane of existence is exactly what became of nuStarbuck.
