Battlestar Galactica Source Material?

My wife and I watched the finale for Battelstar Galactica on Friday night, and I want to know if I am alone in one odd observation.

Spoilers if you read on…

As we were watching the final episode and I noted that we had a ship fleeing from a disaster on its home world complete, in the final scenes, with a man in a bath tub controlling the ship.

Then we had those people land on Earth and become our ancestors rather than the indigenous proto-humans who were already living on the planet.  That was clearly established that in the final scene.

It made me want to go back and watch the series again to see just how much else from the series could be mapped to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Was Gaius Baltar just Arthur Dent?

I mean Cylons… Vogons… it is all starting to sound suspicious to me.

    “Was Gaius Baltar just Arthur Dent?”

    No, just poorly written scifi where the executive producers decided to abandon the plot and “focus” on the many lives of the characters – those who were still alive, at least.

    Cylons = Giant Space Goat.

    Now unfortunately with hyperinflation and leaves as the new currency a ship’s peanut will now cost 3 deciduous forests.

    Wasn’t Baltar running around in his bathrobe at some point? And would all that make 6 the best Ford Prefect ever?
