Several Canadian outlets, CTV, Canadian Press, and 24 Hours Vancouver talked to UBC professor C.W. Marshall, who teaches Greek and Latin poetry and fellow UBC professor, Tiffany Potter, who have edited a book of papers called Cylons in America: Critical Studies in Battlestar Galactica.
Marshall says the book falls into three major sections, the first looks at how post 9-11 life is reflected in the series.
"The series is really trying to reflect in a fictional world the real things that are happening after 9-11," he says. "The second section has a series of papers that deal with what constitutes being human. In the television series the surviving humans are fleeing the robotic Cylons. But the question of whether the Cylons are human, can be treated as humans, under what circumstances they can be seen as human - really these are philosophical questions that again map onto a post-9-11 world, when we can feel comfortable bombing another country because they're not like us.
"And the third section is really looking at the series in terms of television today. How this series is at the forefront of a wave of new television that's really quite exciting and thought provoking."
Tiffany Potter, who co-edited "Cylons in America" with Marshall, says because "Battlestar Galactica" is science fiction and rooted in fantasy, it can explore topics in ways that would be difficult for a series set in the contemporary United States.
"The problem with talking about that on CNN or Fox News is you immediately risk alienating a substantial part of your audience," says Potter.
"As soon as you translate that to outer space, it's not real. You're able to make it about a space president and a space election. When you remove that threat to people's own self-construction, then they can ask the hard questions."
