Don't you mean Sheba? CDR Cain's daughter?

I think it's great DESPITE retaining Glen Larson from the original series as a consultant. The original was so campy as to be unwatchable even as a kid. That damn robot dog and all the kids.
This one's cool though. Dr. Bashir as the turncoat Doctor. The Andromeda pilot as Starbuck. The First Lady from Independence Day as the President...
A few problems though. Like their space math is apparently way off. They lose 60% of the fleets water in the episode "water", then suddenly only have enough rations for 2 days. Meaning, before losing 60% they only had enough for 5 days??? Okay, so they make this huge deal about needing to find an ice moon...but they would have anyway in another 3 days, right?
Like every 5 days basically. I know, I know. Just repeat to myself it's just a show, I should really just relax.
The first non mini-series episode was the worst yet I thought. Don't like like the prison riot storyline. It's getting less Sci Fi, more soap opera already. Next, the President will have breast cancer.
That damn robot dog and all the kids.
Dude! Gaius just LOOKS like Bashir. i had to check it out, but the actor is actually named James McCain. Bashir was played by Alexander siddig. I know, wierd, they could be twins

I'm not sure about Starbuck, though. I don't think it's the same actor. Actually, I'm being told it's not. Damn, remarkable though.
