    Starbuck, Roslin, and Athena were all great sci-fi characters and in my opinion easily stand with the best in the category from film and screen.

    I felt at the time like Roslin’s actions in the abortion episode were kind of forced and out of character, although maybe that was just me not wanting to see a character I liked do something I hated.
