From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide
Kuralyov (born Eddie Guimont, circa 1987, in Glastonbury) enjoys science fiction, Arthurian legend, Classical Greco-Roman history, alternate history, and left-wing politics. He also likes watching a cartoon show called "Pokey the Penguin" (LOL!). In his spare time he also enjoys ruling his own small independent nation, the Republic of Proletaria. I never saw the original "Battlestar Galactica," and given the average quality of the Sci-Fi Channel's productions didn't know what to expect, but I now am sure glad I watched the mini-series and got hooked to the new BSG.
Can someone please tell me what the hell "Zoic" means?
