Galactica Babe Pollwatch - Update


Following up on my earlier post, here's a picture of the annonymous bridge officer aboard the Galactica who always did that shaky-voiced countdown of the incoming Cylon raiders. (Sorry the pic isn't better).

I found this snap at this site. If you peddle backwards, you get to this page with lots of additional links. The site identifies the Galactica character as "Flight Corporal Rigel" and says she was played by an actress named Sarah Rush. (Beats the hell out of me, but there you are. It's on the Internet, so it must be true.)

Be that all as it may, I think JohnL should put a special Honorable Mentions section into this poll and include Corp. Rigel.

You got her name and the fact that she is an actress. Takes about 3 seconds in Google to find her own web site:

Correct site address is:


Plenty of pictures.

Oops. I should actually follow the links first on your posts. You had that site alraedy. Sorry

My vote goes to Lt. Sheba. BTW, the Colonial military emblem on the collar of Robbo's long-lost looks like the insignia of U. S. Army military intelligence, a representation of the all-seeing sun god Helios superimposed on a sword.

LMC, I'm right there with you about Sheba. And I would be willing to bet the insignia are identical (why spend $$$ on custom insignia when you can get the badges at your local Army-Navy surplus store?)

Yup, especially as the special effects were so damn expensive to shoot in those days. There goes your budget.

Was Adrienne Barbeau on that show? She must have been. I vote for her.

The blogosphere is BRUTAL. I posted a pic of a llama to ridicule you guys, & some reader emailed "Excuse me, that's a VICUNA, stupid!"

I feel just like Dan Rather.
