Hey y’all, thanks so much for stopping by my FF!
Fandom Friday is a weekly meme that highlights, various fandoms. Typically those that I am definitely a part of, sometimes those that I am not a part of but do feel strongly should have a fandom surrounding them.
Taken from SYFY:
Considered by many to be one of the best television series ever made, Battlestar Galactica picks up just as Cylons- intelligent robots designed by humankind- commit mass genocide against humanity. Only Battlestar Galactica, the last of the Colonial Fleet, survives the attack. Driven by prophetic visions and political necessity, the Galactica travels through uncharted space in hopes of finding the mythical, lost 13th colony- Earth.
Why I am a fan?
I had never heard of the first Battlestar Galactica when I started watching the new one. With a dark start, I couldn’t help but follow a show that hit on many modern day issues while in space. I loved that the main character was a female- which was rare in 2004 as well as a strong female cast. Most sci-fi shows are male dominate, while the male cast of Battlestar Galactica were definitely Alpha males, they did not seem to mind allowing their female shipmates a chance to shine. I don’t think they really had a choice as Starbuck, Grace and Six all were strong female leads. Due to the several different storylines for this ensemble cast, I couldn’t help but get caught up in what was going on with each character every week.
