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*

Hi Mick!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

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.

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)...
