The Original Battlestar Series


From the Battlestar Wiki. There is so much to love about this picture: the hair, the outfits. The outfits are officially pressure suits used by viper pilots. Viper pilots apparently need a horizontal strip of protection across their chest, and a triangle across the crotch. I really dig the fact that the panel on the crotch doesn't go all the way around their hips, like it was underwear. It is just a triangle, suspended there.

Having just re-watched the B.G. mini-series, I think we should keep in mind that 6 is wearing pvc underwear under her totally see-through suit on Caprica. Not really all that far off the 70's look above. Perhaps a better hair-cut, but. . ..

I take it that six's outfits, especially baltar's internal six, are intentionally over the top.

Greeting from Kunming, China. Hopefully I will post pictures soon!
