“People still kill one another for petty jealousy and greed. Humanity never asked itself why it deserved to survive. Maybe you don’t….”
Quote from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
This is the finest space opera television series ever produced. Period. I’ve watched every episode from all 5 seasons 3 times. Either I’m a lunatic, or I don’t have a life, or both. Whatever. However, I must reiterate the observation made by the writers of the series about the extermination of the human race as a result of creating weapons it cannot control: “THIS HAS ALL HAPPENED BEFORE AND IT WILL ALL HAPPEN AGAIN.”
