Battlestar Galactica

I'm extremely pleased with the series so far.  Spoilers follow, but since it's aired a second time I'm not going to worry about a cut tag.  It's short.  No, wait.  I speculate on what's coming further down the line, so up the spoiler cut goes.

I'm a little confused why they couldn't find another source of volunteers in the most recent episode, among the rest of the populace of the fleet.  I was a little confused why Starbuck took the shot on a guy who had just ordered his men to lower his weapons... until I realized that this guy is not going away, and there will be plenty of time for us to learn that these two have some kind of history.  Anyone want to take bets on whether he killed her parents?  She was actually angry at having missed the shot, and it didn't look like simple professional pride to me.

The elections thing makes sense, I suppose... but doesn't anyone watching think that maybe a state of emergency is actually warranted in this case?  I've forgotten, what's their eventual goal here?  In the miniseries, Adama said they were going to Earth, right?  The commanders of Battlestars were given the coordinates of Earth...  Did he say how long it would take to get there?  How long do they think this emergency will last?  I'm not sure what the expectations are in the fleet at this point...

Maybe someone should put together a Lurker's Guide to Battlestar Galactica.  It deserves it. 

B5, DS9, Firefly, and now BSG.  The pantheon of modern sci-fi television.

And now I can face the long wait for Serenity in September...
