Re: Defending Admiral Cain from Battlestar Galactica(mentions Dick Che

Screw Cain. I remember characters trying to apologise for her saying "she did what it took to survive". Which is arse. Survival would have been takin those civllian ships and going on the run, just like galactica did. Instead she was so obsessed with striking back she not only committed an atrocity to get parts for her ship, she then persisted with the attack even tho it was a blatant trap resulting in high casualties and shot the XO when he protested. What was it all even for? The war was lost.

The Old Man had his share of flaws too. So did most of the crew cos they were fucked up survivors of the end of civillisation. But they held onto some sense of both morality and perspective, while she was an extra order of magnitude of crazy.
