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

In a story about total war there are going to be massive crimes on both sides. There's no getting away from that. We're supposed to be rooting for the humans because y'know we are humans. As a foil to the idea that the people we are rooting for are by definition 'the goodies' it was an act of genius to introduce the Pegasus and its charismatic captain. The first shock and awe at discovering another and much more modern Battlestar is gradually eroded by the gradual realisation that they have lost their humanity, whereas Galactica not only held onto theirs but managed to spread it out to cylons as well. It was a master stroke to introduce Cain and her crew.
