InZane in the Membrane

It's not unknown. I know where it is! Earth - the most guarded secret we have. The location was only known by the senior commanders of the fleet, and we dared not share it with the public. Not while there was a Cylon threat upon us. For now we have a refuge to go to. A refuge that the Cylons know nothing about! It won't be an easy journey. It will be long and arduous. But I promise you one thing. On the memory of those lying here before you, we shall find it. And Earth will become our new home. So say we all! - Adama

The Harris School of Public Policy

Chicago Harris sets the standard for effective public policy leadership. We evaluate policy options based on evidence first, then consider implementation in the real world. No other school shares our commitment to shaping policy in this way. We take great pride in our approach. Our students develop the intellectual tools to tackle the most challenging social, educational, and economic issues facing our world. Harris faculty routinely break ground—and preconceptions—with their research on a wide array of topics including energy, health care, crime, inequality, and early childhood development. Effective policy leaders combine insight, analysis, creativity, and communication. Prepare yourself to lead.

Disco No Disco

"Thank you very much. The Cylon war is long over. Yet we must not forget the reasons why so many sacrificed so much in the cause of freedom. The cost of wearing the uniform can be high. But...sometimes it's too high. You know, when we fought the Cylons, we did it to save ourselves from extinction. But we never answered the question of 'Why?' A young Ensign once asks me, 'Why are we as a people worth saving?' I could not answer him then and I can’t answer him now. As a people we still commit murder because of greed, spite, jealousy...We still visit all of our sins upon our children...Commander Tolan once told me that you can’t outrun the sins of your family and as a species we refuse to accept responsibility for anything that we've done…like we did with the Cylons. We decided to play God. Create life...When that life turned against us...we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn't our fault, not really. But like Ensign Wallace says, it was our fault…no one else to blame…You cannot play god then wash your hands of the things that you've created. Sooner or later, the day comes when you can't hide, from the things that you've done, anymore." - Commander Adama

TANSTAAFL

Taking his cue from such conservative visionaries as Robert A. Heinlein and Milton Friedman, Rob S-F boldly intersperses his dissonant and frankly unpleasant tunes with short passages read aloud from Ayn Rand's magnum opus "Atlas Shrugged," pre-recorded and played backwards at double speed to maximize the subconscious absorption of his message of greed, cruelty, and glorious moral bankruptcy.

Missionaria Protectiva

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing....only I will remain.

The Madame President Show

"Women and men of the fleet. This is your president. We have come to a crossroads in our long and painful journey. Of all the decisions that I have had to make since assuming the presidency, none was more frightening or more difficult than agreeing to this alliance with the Cylons. But we have come to a crossroads in our long and painful journey. Cylons and humans have been at war for generations; we know nothing else. And we have been locked in a struggle that has seen both sides suffer unspeakable loss. But with our supplies running low and our options limited, our former enemies may represent our last, perhaps our only hope. To those in the fleet and in Galactica who would reject this alliance, I am asking you. No, I am begging you to reconsider and place your trust back in those who have brought you this far, and to reject those traitors who would use your fear of the Cylons to destroy Colonial civilization a...
