Serenity In Battlestar Galactica

Someone had mentioned to me that there was a pretty cool easter egg in the premier of the Battlestar Galactica Series. Turns out that the company that did the special effects for Firefly is now working on Battlestar. They included Firefly in one of the shots (with the secretary of education meeting her doctor) and it’s only visible for a few seconds, but there she is, one of the most beautiful ships ever to grace television. Sniff. oh gawd, I’m all choked up now…

But while, at one point, the Enterprise was a unique ship,… Read more »

    Yeah, I’d have to say, as far as just wicked cool and unique ships, B5 probably had some of the best. My favorites were, of course, the Shadow Battlecrabs, the Centauri Vorchan Class starships, Earth/Minbari Victory class destroyers, And the StarFuries, to name a few. But what I really loved about the B5 ships was the sheer variety…
