Statistically, it should have happened before this. With all the people that have passed through the battlestar, someone was bound to be gay.
The bad news is it wasn’t Starbuck. (Just the thought of that is enough to send me into orbit, and gratuitously include her picture!)
There been lots of blog-buzz floating around about gay character revelations in the new Battlestar Galactica “The Face of the Enemy” webisodes.
Don’t read any farther if you don’t want to know who.
(I warned you.)
We actually learn Lt. Felix Gaeta and Lt. Hoshi Brad Dryborough are a couple in the very first webisode when Colonel Tigh sends Gaeta away for some rest and relaxation. As Felix is leaving the deck, he runs into Hoshi. Felix apologizes for leaving on such short notice but Hoshi only says “Go. Feel better. Ill be waiting.”
The two then exchange the sort of brief and familiar kiss that passes between long-time lovers.
