What's the point of living after your world has beendestroyed? This is one of many questions raised by the Sci-FiChannel's critically acclaimed series BattlestarGalactica. More than just an action-packed "spaceopera," each episode offers a dramatic character study of thehuman survivors and their Cylon pursuers as they confrontexistential, moral, metaphysical, theological, and politicalcrises. This volume addresses some of the key questions to which theColonials won't find easy answers, even when they reachEarth: Are Cylons persons? Is Baltar's scientific worldviewsuperior to Six's religious faith? Can Starbuck be free ifshe has a special destiny? Is it ethical to cut one's lossesand leave people behind? Is collaboration with the enemy ever theright move? Is humanity a "flawed creation"? Should weshare the Cylon goal of "transhumanism"? Is it really abig deal that Starbuck's a woman?
