On the surface, the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Season 3 premiere seemed very exciting. Great action, dramatic moments and competent acting. However . . . throughout the entire two hours, I found myself wondering why the Cylons didn't simply wipe out all of the Colonials trapped on New Caprica. Their reasons for keeping them alive didn't make any sense to me. I had this feeling that Ronald Moore had used some lame, philosophical reason as an excuse to prevent the Cylons from killing the humans in order to the whole "resistance movement" scenario into the series.

Watching the premiere brought back memories of ST: DEEP SPACE NINE. During that show's early Season 6, Ron Moore had also tried this "resistance movement" story arc . . . by allowing the Dominion and the Cardassians to invade and occupy Deep Space Nine. It didn't really work for me in that series, and I might as well say the same about BG's Season 3 premiere. I suspect that Mr. Moore is trying to repeat the success of BABYLON FIVE's "Earth Civil War" story arc. But instead of being impressed, BG's premiere came off as unoriginal to me.
