Sci FI UK caught up with actress Katee Sackhoff who played galactic (see what I did there) badass Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica and asked here whether she could shed any light on mysterious of her character. Sackhoff had this to say:
“No. There’s no reason to find out who or what she was. I don’t think that’s something that Ron [Moore] ever wanted. Who Starbuck was as a metaphor was always up in the air. She was always on this self discovery of trying to find herself the entire run of the show. I think it’s poetic justice for her to end the way she did. There’s no point in trying to figure it out, I think that would ruin what was a very simple end for her.”
