"wars we told them about that would have redirected resources away from research"
I'm sorry but WW1 heavily shot technology forward with new weapons.. WW2 also did the same with new weapons, technological advances and the like.. and the Cold War helped us invent entirely new, never before done technologies from scratch to get to the moon and then invent the computers and everything.
Wars really boost technological advances, not slow them down.
Peace is generally bad for technological expansion... unless the entirety of Earth was at peace and united and had combined all their resources together..

The speech you're using for the RAF pilots isn't the same as british pilots would use, for a tart pilots tend to be degree educated and most are upper middle class.

So between the Iraq war and their crappy NHS the Brits had enough cash for a space program. That's probably why the NHS is so crappy in the first place - they spend the money on their space program.
So I am imagining the front of the Tempest: "British Leyland Ford Space Rover" is written there with a little rope winch and some metal stakes barely visible behind an ill-fitting cover secured with a ratty bicycle 4-digit combination lock ...

GALACTICA and other Battlestars, such as PEGASUS are so large that a Nimitz-class CVN is almost as long as one of the upper drive pods, while the rest of the ship stretches away from the carrier. There is a picture to that effect in the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Magazine's first issue.

I have just finished this story and what my first responds to the end of the story is not pg-13. Good but the end I am disapointed. Your story to end anyway you want but still...

I like the story, I like reading the storie where they find Earth. I was wondering, I am sure most people have heard of Area 51, if you havnt, its supposed to be a secrect United States Military base that holds aliens there that crashed down in Roswell. But most believe the they are developoing very advanced Weapons, especially Aircraft, i am thinking if you want, you could say that Earth does have aircraft like Galactica, but it has never been made public that a ship like that has been made made. I mean, you can't make Earth totally defensless and have rely upon the Galactica to survive. Well, im done talking, good story.

"My first impression of the man, from what I heard over the radio, was of someone far too used to independent command. Adama was senior Commander by everyone's terms IE years in rank yet Hercules still sounded like he was giving orders which he expected to be obeyed. Okay, so there was a note of respect in the orders but he certainly wasn't treating Adama as even an equal, let alone the Senior Commander."
"Sufficed to say, if Hercules couldn't cope and needed to be replaced, we would be in real trouble." I agree with him on the first point, but what gave him the idea that it could not be done? Almost everyone in the refugee fleet trusts Commander Adama much more that they will Hercules, he was not there for them plain and simple. I doubt that the people would take kindly to some one who endangered them or did not follow orders from the protecter that they trust. I know I would not, after all, Adama is the one who saved them all from certain death.
