A Small BSG Season 4 Spoiler

I just saw a small Battlestar Galactica season 4 spoiler at SyFy Portal.  I have to say that I'm a little annoyed at reading this piece of information.

Basically, the spoiler says that BSG is adding a new female character to the cast.  Her name is Kendra Taggert (same initial as Starbuck, coincidence? ) and she's a Major who was stationed on Pegasus.  Supposedly Major Taggert went a little loopy after the initial cylon attack (a la Starbuck?!)

I'm not thrilled at all that BSG would introduce a new character at this late stage.  Ron Moore had already said that the show is moving into its third act in a 3-act structured play.  I would much rather TPTB focus on the stories involving the main characters we all come to love and care about through out the years.

Also I'm a little annoyed at Ron Moore's propensity at recycling his ideas.  Case in point:  the much overly used flashbacks, the "head figures" that nobody else can see for multiple characters, the tendency to use intercut scenes, and now another loopy young female character...

I wonder if this new character is being setup to be the last cylon?  Why else introduce a new character when the story is moving towards its finale? *sigh*

Your points are all valid. Are they getting a new crazy female since Kara seemed so calm at the end of CRII? I wonder if she'll be blonde as well (I mean, her initials are the same, so why not the hair color? Maybe she's an artist as well)?

As for her being the final cylon--I saw that specualtion elsewhere, too. I think that would be too easy and cheap for RM. They have a large cast as it is--why couldn't Dee be the final one? Gaeta? Romo? Showboat--wasn't she a Pegasus pilot? And we all know her. Heck, there's so many people. I'll really be upset if yet another secondary character--not to mention a character we've never seen or heard of--takes up storytime from the main ones, as I felt is what happened in season 3. I mean, I don't mean to offend, but I really would have liked to see more of Lee than Cally! (yep, bad day--can yout tell?)

Nope, not very thrilled with this news at all.

Hi Mick!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Good point! Actually, I'm rooting for Kara being the last cylon--it's the least hooky, the most logical way to resurrect her at this point IMHO.

I'm speculating this new character being a cylon because I really don't think they need yet another female characters. They've got plenty so far: Roslin, Kara, Athena, Dee, Cally, Tory, Racetrack, Seelix, (Six if we are counting the antagonists)... I just wish TPTB can concentrating on the characters they have already.

I didn't like Three whom they put a lot of emphasis on in season 3. I was resentful of her because I think she took away a lot of stories from those established characters (especially Six) whom I was interested in since the beginning of the story. As a result, I was not interested in any of her stories at all!

I'll really be upset if yet another secondary character--not to mention a character we've never seen or heard of--takes up storytime from the main ones, as I felt is what happened in season 3.

That's how I felt too a lot of the times this season. *sigh* As for me, I couldn't get enough story of Lee and Bill. I wouldn't even mind for more story with Lee and Anders (yep, I can't believe I would say this, but it would be nice for Lee to have some real friends)...
