Indeed.

The lack of technology also restricts the creative juice of the writers as well ... imagine how one can ever create any good ST storyline without warp 9.9+, shield, tractor beam, replicator, holodeck, etc. :(
As for Star Trek, it has to be tech-savvy. No tech= not a good Star Trek. From the increasingly huge amount of fans of BSG, the writers seem did a wonderful job at recreating the story.

This is one thing I strongly agree with you. BSG is all about the human spirit, the will to survive in the face of unimaginable obstacles, and not being able to use the resources available to them because it'll only cause them to be defeated.

And yet, despite the odds, they're forging forward, bit by bit, slowly but surely.

A good human spirit story will always have an audience.

I wish I had cable so that I can watch it for "free".

It really sucks that season two DVD was split into 2 volumes and the price almost doubled. Really crazy man.

Just to let u know that Gramaphone have BSG seasons 1, 2 (1st-half), and 2.5 (2nd-half) for rental ... Rental rate is $30/mth, unlimited time, but limited to 1 boxset per borrowing.

I borrowed many DVD series fr Gramaphone @ Holland V ... very good service.
May the Force Live Long & Prosper ...

The drama in the drama si-fi, makes up for the techy lack. But I hv hands down for the show which is as good as HEROS season 1.
