  • The Olympians of Battlestar Galactica

    So I have finally seen all of Battlestar Galactica and I really like what I see but Some comments make me ask is there a coloration between the Greek Gods and the crew of Galactica
    HereÆs how I see how things break down.

    the Father and the leader

    Queen in her way, Sure Laura and Adama aren't married but how much time did Zeus and Hera spend together anyways.

    Apollo - LEE ADAMA
    Son of Zeus, Call sign what can say anchor to the theory.

    Artemis - KARA THRACE
    Daughter of Zeus, fit with Kara relationship to William

    Hades - SAUL TIGH
    God of death and Darkness, it seem to me that Tigh fits the bill

    Aphrodite - SHARON VALERII
    Goddess of love, Boomer has had more that than anyone on the show

    Hermes- GAIUS BALTAR
    Trickier of Greek myth, smart and not all the trust worthy

    Hephaestus - CPO Chief Tyrol
    In Greek myth the husband of Aphrodite, god for the forge maker of things

    Poseidon - Helo
    God of the sea

    Hestia - Dualla
    Hestia is the Hearth, seem to be the fire which everyone can go to.

    Ares - Six
    She seems to fit the bill better than anyone

    DoesnÆt fit exactly but I think its a fun little game

    Very interesting thought. I like it!
