What's Your Battlestar Galactica Pilot Name?

What's Your Battlestar Galactica Pilot Name?

Oh, the wonders you find thanks to streaming television. My family’s latest discovery is Battlestar Galactica. It’s got evil robots that look like humans, crazy relationships, intense action, a gorgeous cast, and spaceships. What more could you ask for in a sci-fi show?
