Ho folks this is going to be from he most erratic I ever posted, showing there is always a place for self improvement
So better spare your time and go elsewhere .
Battle Star Gallactica is a TV series relating the stories of some 50 thousand refuggees in their armoured space ships, after our planet was destroyed by an alien attack.
The last episode I have seen called my attention as usual, but this time I have found something there relating to Street Photography and RFF too.
The story dealt with one of the big battle ships of the Gallactica fleet, being lured to an alien trap, which hardly manages to survive. Before the trap a strong discussion aroused between the ship commander and his deputy, his deputy claiming beforehand it is going to be a trap and the commander putting his deputy under custody, showing a great doze of untolerance in listening to other's opinions.
When the ship falls into the trap, the nuke battle starts. The commander quickly acknowledges his mistake, recalls his youg deputy into formal and actual command of the whole ship, and goes to heroically die in a crucial attempt to fix a gas leak somewhere at the ship, upon which much of the survival depends.
After the happy end, the young deputy is appointed as formal commander of the ship, by the Gallactica Chief Commander, in an informal and prived meeting. There the chief asks the younger, what in his opinion was the ex-commander mistake. The younger answers: he was best in dealing with machines, not good in dealing whith human beings.
I must say this sentence continues to wrinkle in my mind, in connection to our most recent thread about street photography, and in the general context of RFF.
