Stefanie Esser hat einen spannenden Vortrag über Cylon Religion and Sexuality in Battlestar Galactica für die FedCon 26 im Gepäck.

Holy F*** – Cylon Religion and Sexuality in BSG
The 1978 version of Battlestar Galactica was steeped in conservative politics and religion, specifically, Mormonism. Ronald D. Moore’s re-imagined BSG (2004-09) equally negotiated political issues and controversies of its time and featured religious imagery and storylines. Contrary to Larson’s Mormon themes, however, BSG’s Cylons in particular practice a type of extremist monotheism that, albeit ostensibly Islamic-themed in the first season, frequently serves as a representation of conservative Evangelicalism in the United States. At the same time, the Cylons are heavily sexualized, which might initially seem contradictory. This presentation examines the ways in which BSG combines the popular trope of the sexy female robot with conservative Christianity in the United States – and why that’s actually not contradictory at all.
