Battlestar Galactica - Scar - Clip 4

by ebreilly

There are strong parallels to be drawn between "Scar," the Cylon Raider Ship, and Moby Dick. Much as the mates drill their men on the routines of whaling, these officers spend their downtime going over with their "nuggets" how they should respond to risky situations they will encounter in the field. And much as Melville shows us the human costs of whaling through various characters with wounds and scars, there is an ongoing discussion here of the many men and women who have died doing battle with "Scar."
