Bill Gordon: On Battlestar Galactica

"Battlestar Galactica created a fantastical universe where brothers of man fought to survive somewhere beyond the heavens.
It is a timeless tale of good's triumph over evil, of courage in the face of adversity, and of hope in the face of hopelessness.
It is a show that revels in the themes of family, honor and commitment. These are the themes and the mythos that have endeared Battlestar Galactica to viewers of all ages....
Battlestar Galactica simply makes people feel good.
And that makes it powerful."

-Bill Gordon, GINO, So Say We All: An Unauthorized Collection Of Thoughts And Opinions On Battlestar Galactica, p.189-

Courage in the face of adversity. Much like the values instilled in the original series, courage is something you don't see often from leadership today. False courage, yes. True courage, hardly.
