In 2009, the final episodes of the popular TV reboot of Battlestar Galactica were airing on Syfy. It was the end of a four-year run that was the height of science fiction on television at the time (sorry Lost, but I think BSG got the better of you). While the first half of season four was a bit shaky, the series finale was received with an equally mixed reaction from fans and television critics alike. The finale, entitled “Daybreak,” left some questions unanswered, while some of the questions that were answered were seen as lackluster and unsatisfying. Chief among these was the fate of of Kara “Starbuck” Thrace. How controversial was it? People are still asking the show’s creators about it, even all these years later.
