The Man with Nine Lives
We should probably do a series of articles similar to the RDM "Twelve Colonies" series that Peter started. Here's an idea:
- Fashions of the Twelve Colonies (TOS) - Covers the clothing and other "bling bling", since it's pretty unique.
- Arts and Entertainment of the Twelve Colonies (TOS) - Good place for triad, pyramid, and minor games we see in the series (in particular this would be a great place for those games we see in "Fire in Space")
- Technology of the Twelve Colonies (TOS) - tech and all that
- Government of the Twelve Colonies (TOS) - government, Quorum of Twelve (TOS), and all that jazz
- Society of the Twelve Colonies (TOS) - society, such as religion
- Life Sciences of the Twelve Colonies (TOS) - Covers the medical and psychological aspects of the Colonies, in progress
- List of Warriors - analog to List of pilots (created 1/16/07, but sorely needing an update)
- Unnamed Battlestar Galactica personnel (TOS) - analog to Unnamed Battlestar Galactica personnel
- I'll start this one as named... do we want to port it over to unnamed characters like the RDM version is now? --Steelviper 08:14, 17 January 2007 (CST)
Pictures needed for...
- Maybe the big blue squadron/galactica logo that's up in the officer's club? --Steelviper 08:14, 17 January 2007 (CST)
- Military Ranks (TOS) - could use some color
