    If nope, zilch, none, none and zero is your definition of hardly any... then what would you call absolutely none?

    Jadzia made out with Voyager's Borg Queen?

    Ratings gimick bullshit.

    The Ferengi were all as gay as they needed to be. One of the rules of acquisition is always have sex with the boss, and you know that women are forbidden from working, leaving the house or wearing clothes. It's a big gay planet. Meanwhile DS9 had an entire spare universe where it kept all it's other gays.

    There was an episode of Celebrity death Match (claymation farce, late 90s) where the commentator described a death match as the Centurions from Battlestar galactica vs. the two gay robots from Star Wars.

    Watch the BSG webisodes face of the Enemy. Felix Geata has a boyfriend. I think it's Hoshi? Hoshi is like the (TNG) Miles O'Brien of BSG.

    Ivanoa completely slept with Talia in B5, and they were flirting from the outset. meanwhile it was only a cover by Stephen and Marcus posed as a legally sanctioned married couple on their secret mission to mars and Marcus played an excellent fishwife.

    Camile raye on Stargate Universe... And almost every Goul'd. Queens are very, very very rare. Not unicorn rare, but one in a thousand, y'know. When the Tokra lad was describing his relationship with Jolinar to Sam it became clear that the snake decides what human meat it is going to wear, wich does not necessarily reflect it's own physiology. So read that how you will that it seems that Earth decided to destroy the spacegays becuase it was the decent thing to do.

    Oh, well if we're including females, Don't forget Admiral Cain and her Six. And in Firefly Inara had female customers as well and was attracted to Saffron

    It does seem sexist to suggest that lesbians don't count, but really the sort of abortion clinic bombing asshole who opposes homosexuality on moral and spiritual grounds with every fibre in his being isn't usually talking about girl on girl.

    Bill Adama's uncle was gay on Caprica, and Clarice Willow was in a multiple person marriage that I believe included members of both sexes, although I can't remember how much was established or implied about who slept with who there.

    They can make the oldest sun on the show gay and cast me as his boyfriend. :-]

    We go back 30 years and watch V: The Series. Alexsis = Elizabeth, grey dust = red dust.

    I knew I'd seen this show before.

    And more magic than ever.

    And apparently the Volm's ultimate goal is to become our babysitters.

    But Karen's dead! Woo-hoo.

    Haters can go on hating. I'll be back for more next season.

    I'm coming back too. For all it's flaws, I still think it's a fun show. I don't like the concept of a magic baby though.

    I just take it as somebody on the writing staff was a huge fan of V: The Final Battle. Just so long as the kid doesn't start magically crash-landing spaceships, I can tolerate it for a while.

    This episode was another example of drama powered by no one asking the obvious questions. In this case, what will the Volm do once they win the war on earth? Stay as caretakers? leave us in peace? But no, without that question being answered we get all mad about relocation. The characters probably wouldn't have been very upset if the Volm told them, "well, Brazil is only temporary until we wipe out this nasty infestation you've got, once that's over you'll be free to return to your lands while we leave a small embassy here and continue chasing these buggers to the next star system".


    And holey crap, been staring at the guy all season and didn't realize until last night that scientist guy is Wilson from House.

    magic baby needs to die. worst idea ever.

    Right, but I'm pretty sure the Charlestonians weren't thinking about it very hard when the Volm said "We hate the other guys and are gonna kill 'em."


    Been there...

    Let's give magic baby till she's a teenager in love with Beiber. Then her death will be more satisfying.

    I thought this was a good episode and great way to end the season. It was nice to see more of the Volm than just Cochise. I'm glad to see Karen dead.
    I'm not sure what I think of Alexis yet, I'll wait till I see exactly where they go with her when the show comes back. It'll also be interesting to see what kind of relationship they end up having with the Volm in the long run.

    Nope. If they say that Bieber somehow survived all this, then I'll quit watching the show.

    Well magic baby can grow into a teenager and then we can explore the social and moral questions of her being a love interest for Mason's youngest child.

    After finding out that Tom is not really the human Tom, but rather an alien replica which is why the baby is half-alien.

    So does the fact that the Father of the child is an alien replica of your Father take out the incest angle?

    Not if they used the real Tom's DNA to engineer the alien's disguise...

    I liked the finale. I'm glad the Volm did NOT turn out to be evil, but just had a different idea of how to wage war and they managed to come to an understanding.
