Description

This book presents a celebrative dissection of the Sci Fi Channel's re-imagination of the archetypal 70s classic. In 2003, the Sci Fi Channel released an original miniseries based on beloved '70s uber-hit "Battlestar Galactica". The results were astonishing. 180 minutes of incredible television kept a rapt audience glued to their screens and the plaudits came flooding in. This was everything that sci fi TV could - and should - be. The show has since rated two seasons and is currently being approved for a third. The reasons behind its phenomenal success? Exceptional writing, stupendously imagined fantasies and a willingness - even an eagerness - to tackle the difficult issues that are the tradition, though so often the pitfall, of science fiction. At times shocking and intense, "Battlestar Galactica" tackles topics like martial law; power and corruption; torture and interrogation tactics; artificial intelligence; and ultimately, again in the best traditions of successful sci fi, what it is to be human. "So Say We All" provides intelligent, thought-provoking answers to the questions so memorably raised by the show. How can a person maintain faith in god when enmeshed in an Armageddon of his own making? Is Zarek a terrorist or a freedom fighter? What are the identity politics of a Cylon who looks human? Is torturing a Cylon worse than putting one out of the airlock? What ethical complexities arise when one false step could mean the annihilation of the human race?
