Good and bad news for Asians in Battlestar Galactica

Good and bad news for Asians in Battlestar Galactica

yes, I know I’m very slow off the mark, but I’ve only just seen the Battlestar Galactica 2005 mini-series which leads onto a new TV series. Which reveals that the token Asian rookie pilot actually turns out to be the enemy within, a Cylon cyborg…

So on the other hand, yet another US sci-fi TV mini-series has the Asian as the rookie one, but at least she’s got something interesting to do. So that’s two steps forward, one step back.

But why oh why did she have to be the baddie? As if there isn’t enough white fear in the USA about the enemy within and all that…

Although no doubt some smart-alec will point out that it’s set in a world way beyond Earth, so their human society could be completely different.
