Battlestar Galactica - Scar - Clip 1

by ebreilly

There are strong parallels to be drawn between "Scar," the Cylon Raider Ship, and Moby Dick. The Galactica crew has become obsessed with "Scar" as a malignant and destructive force that has taken the lives of friends who have gone up against it. See, for example, this scene from early in the episode when Starbuck explains to a new trainee who “Scar” is and why they are hunting him. The ship's hull is ripped and dented, much as Moby Dick's side is punctured with harpoons and tangled with ropes.
