I found that Battlestar writers to be utterly ignorant to military issues from big to small. They may have had some consultants early on, but they either didn't ask them questions or ignored to what they were told past the first 4 openers. And those first shows you had to get past this network issue that seemed a massive exchange of Easy for Security. For me it often blew my suspension of disbelief. Nobody top to bottom acted as though they were in a war that held a zero survivability outcome. I couldn't believe what I was seeing for planing of military ops. Of course the other option in a story about a technology advanced race battling is a show that lasts 10 minutes with a Struss-ian outcome via some sort of gravity bomb deployed to the starts of the inhabited worlds. Anyway.
