I don't wish to seem as though I'm dissing the great John Colicos, but what, exactly, is so compelling about a craven quisling without even the most basic facility for detecting obvious facts like, "Your so-called allies hate and intend to kill all humans, such as yourself, genius"?
I mean, don't get me wrong, Gaius Baltar isn't any better - a man so daft he would side with an enemy bent on the extermination of the species of which he is himself a member is always going to be kind of a hard sell in the "sure, I'll buy that there is a point to this character" department - but OG Baltar? Really? I mean, really? :)
