Top 10 Things I’d Like to See on Battlestar Galactica

While I still like the new Battlestar Galactica, I must admit that some of the more recent episodes have, well, kind of sucked. As a public service to BG fans, I’d like to offer my suggestions to Ronald D. Moore on the:

Top 10 Things I’d Like to See on Battlestar Galactica

  1. Guest appearance by Dirk Benedict as Kara Thrace’s long-lost father, who gets into a heated argument with Tom Zarek that ends with both of them being sucked out of the nearest airlock.
  2. The creation of a new Viper model nicknamed Galactica 1980 that, by the grace of God (Cylon or otherwise), never sees the light of day.
  3. A crossover episode where the crew from Firefly appears amidst the Colonial Fleet and River gets to kick some toaster a@@.
  4. My face carved into a moon.
  5. The all-Boomer episode. (Oh, I’m sorry. I thought this was “The One and Only Thing Tim Would Like to See on Battlestar Galactica” list.)
  6. Baltar doing the Riverdance. With Richard Simmons.
  7. The creation of a new Military Morale team whose job it is to visit random crew members and delight them with show tunes.
  8. A “very special” episode in which, much to joy of the relieved crew, Colonel Tigh realizes the true meaning of leadership and responsibility. Then he coughs up blood and dies.
  9. Number 6 meets up with 68 other versions of herself, if you know what I mean. (If the CGI for that one too costly, I’ll settle for Number 6 meets Number 9.)
  10. Undead time-traveling Nazi Cylons.

Does anyone else have their own suggestions?

    when they find earth it is modern day times and the glactica people are stronger becouse they are used to higher gravity….that would be cool.

    Or better yet starbuck crashes on a planet with a cylon and a pragnet woman and starbuck and the cylon have to work together to save that baby.
