Debate: Human-Cylon Alliance
I’m a couple of episodes behind on Battlestar Galactica, preferring to have multiple episodes queued up to watch sequentially, so have seen only the beginning of the plot line in question. Nonetheless, there’s a very interesting cross-blog debate on the merits of the alliance between the humans and Cylons and the rearguard actions to undermine same by Robert Farley (taking the anti-alliance position) and Jonathan Last (making the pro-alliance case).
Obviously, the discussion is more enjoyable if you’re a fan of the show. But, as with all good sci-fi, the questions are really allegories for real life. In this case, there are at least loose connections with the War on Terror, the Iranian nukes debate, and our relationships with Russia and Pakistan.
