Battlestar Galatter-Day Saints

Sci-Fi is showing Battlestar Galactica, which I haven’t seen since I was a kid.

Or as some like to call it, Mormons in Space. More details here, including the fact that Glen A. Larson was with the LDS. Me, I’m not worried that the background nuances of a late-70’s science fiction could possibly inculcate cultic theology into me, any more than Battlefield Earth could turn me into a Scientologist.

Wow, I never realized when I was a kid that “Starbuck” was also “The Face” on A-Team. Heh.

    Battlestar Gallactica… *sighs* …those were the days!

    Of course, being Mormon, half the fun was looking for the insider stuff.

    : )

    Of course, it’s sci-fi… so insider Mormon stuff is as close to actual LDS doctrine as the science is close to actual science.

    Perhaps it should be called mo-fi.

    The same actor also played Lt. Barkley on TNG/Voyager. I caught him about a month ago playing Robert Oppenheimer on an HBO movie (Fat Man and Little Boy or somesuch).

    Hmmm. I believe I am mistaken.
