Did a quick search and couldn't find any other threads that dealt with this topic. Excuse me if I missed a discussion regarding this already. I'm a long time fan of Enterprise and I recently finished all of the early 2000's Battlestar Galactica reboot series. Wow, there's some really startling similarities between these shows, mostly when comparing Enterprise's Xindi arc in Season 3 and the end of Season 4 with all of BSG. Here's just a quick list of things I noticed to maybe get a conversation going: •*The Xindi attack isn't very similar to the BSG attack by the Cylons in the details, but it does push Enterprise into the morally ambiguous territory of BSG. Archer's torturing of a prisoner and theft of the warp coil from the alien ship comes to mind as it forces the Trek crew into darker and more complex territory, which is something BSG was very good at during its entire run. It's obvious and it's been mentioned by others, but it's worth noting again that the 911 atmosphere in the US at the time is echoed in both of these shows. •*The main ship, be it Enterprise or Galactica is a shadow of itself by the end of the war. Broken and beaten, barely holding itself together. That's worked into the plot in both shows. •*The relationship with the Cylons and the humans evolves over time as the rebels break free from the core Cylon society and side with humanity to reach a common, mutually beneficial goal. None of this comes easy though as betrayals and mistrust threaten alliances. Sounds a lot like the uneasy truce that Archer forges with Degra, which is threatened by the reptilians. The attack on the core Cylon ship is not entirely unlike the attack on the Xindi super-weapon. •*The core emotional thread of Entperprise becomes the relationship between Trip and T'pol and the importance of their child who is half human and half Vulcan. The entire finale of Enterprise (not including the holodeck adventure finale here) is about the theft of their child and how important she is to the future of galactic peace. This is where the similarities are most startling to me when you think about BSG's finale. Helo and Athena's child Hera is deemed to be vital to the future and god's plan. She's half human and half Cylon. The finale focuses on her theft due to her importance to both sides. The parents rush into battle to save her. •*Even though T'pol was never a villain on the show, her arc isn't too dissimilar to Athena's as they are both from another culture while tenuously serving on the human vessel. Both have a child with one of the crew members and build a strong bond with the captain despite their differences and mistrust of one another's cultures. Any other thoughts or similarities I missed?
