Bruce,
What about Ms. Lockhart, or Jane Seymore? They've always have stood out in my mind.

Nope, try this on for size,
After the first shows where filmed, they didn't know from week to week if the show was a go or not, the writers would get the word just about at the dealine for making a new show, so they would write, submit, re-write, then film it and have it in the can just hours before the airing date.
Plus, BSG at the time was the most costly show being made, at $1 million per week ( now a days that's cheap ) and to try to keep cost down they spliced in all the old stock footage of the battles and they used any models from movies,shows, that where around ( like tha Ag ship, name the movie it was in ).
So when buck (dumb ) rogers came to be and it was only 1/2 as much to make, BSG got the Ax, even with it getting the top ratings in it's time slot.
Oh, BTW, one fare I picked up to take to the airport was a real nice trip, get was just as big in real life as in the T.V. show even without all the green skin color.

The very last BSG ( if I remember right ) had Adama bring the BSG to flank speed to attack the two Basestars. From what I could figure, it was suppost to be near light speed, but the fuel useage was the limiting factor on how long it could be used. Unlike the you know what remake (yuk) of BSG, they never had anykind of Jump/Warp engines.

June Lockhart? She was in "Lost in Space".
The two female leads in the original BSG were Jane Seymour as Serina and Maren Jensen as Athena.

Or the fox that played Athena? Or the cutie that played Cassiopia?

Scott,
Mm, hmm, I'm sure she helped the "booster rocket" of many a young boy. . .;-)

Silent Running, another Universal movie. (Did they use any clips from This Island Earth? :))
The new BSG uses fairly faithful reproductions of the rag-tag, fugitive fleet of the original, but the Ag ship was only loosely similar to Douglas Trumbul's design... backing off out of respect? (It also didn't make it away from the new Cylons, causing me to wonder what folks will eat.)
Perhaps not cause and effect, since Buck ran on NBC, and the Battlestar on ABC. Although I think I do remember reading that for a time the production office and special effects technicians were working on both at the same time and felt the pinch.
It occurs to me that Universal was responsible for both the stupid '80s Buck Rogers TV series and the stupid '80s Flash Gordon movie. Boy, they have a lot to answer for!

: : You don't remember Jane Seymour? Tch, tch, tch. : I checked. She wasn't a regular. But, no, I do not remember her appearing in the series.
Who could forget her role as Solitare?

:>You don't remember Jane Seymour? Tch, tch, tch. : : Or the fox that played Athena? : Or the cutie that played Cassiopia? : Slightly. Okay, IMDB had a photo of Jensen. She looks to be confined to the bridge shots?
Wasn't Cassie the one Face was always chasing around? I seem to recall an episode where they dolled her up, and that got my attention. But, other than that, no mini, and a very utilitarian flight suit... :-)

Bruce,
Yep, that's her. I think that she was in the "pleasure" business and then became a Medic.

Yep, she wasn't a regular, but she was there in the begining. She was Boxey's mother.

Solitare is the Character Ms Seymor played in the James Bond movie "Live and Let Die" which was her film debut. She was the Bond girl for the film. Steve

Thanks for the heads-up, Martin. I got episodes 8-13, and the series looks great.
I know I sound like a sexist pig, but DAMN the women are hot in this series; even Mary McDonnell, but I always thought she was sexy. :) Starbuck reminds me of a hard-edged, short-haired Monica Potter.
Anyway, thanks for the pointer. Any suggestions where I can dig up the first half of the season, and the miniseries?
I wouldn't mind picking up some recent Enterprise episodes, either, just to see how much Bannon&Braga have screwed up (er) how things are going... :)
