Battlestar Galactica fun times (season 3)
I’m reading Television Without Pity’s recap of “Maelstrom” and the author had this to say about Kara Thrace.
“Kara Thrace had hair, which she cut whenever things got too heavy to carry. Kara Thrace had hands, which they took away during the nova and which they keep taking away. Kara Thrace had wings, for which she gave everything, to make her mother happy, to reach a destiny that everybody knew was coming. Kara Thrace had breasts, and legs, and funny little feet, and a sexy voice, and a ready smile, and a lovely mouth. Kara Thrace had eyes that could always see the weak places, and a tactical mind, and a quick wit, and a burning fire inside that kept her moving forward faster than anybody could keep up. She faced things. She opened doors with her hands, and when that didn’t work she used her feet. We were safer with her than we are without. She fought until she couldn’t. She fought until she didn’t have to.”
This is probably the truest piece about her I will ever read.
