My really true 17th Precinct Theory  
17th Precinct being Ron Moore's pilot for his new t.v. show that's shooting right now, and JUST SO HAPPENS to have BSG/Caprica alumni starring in it.

Okay, since this whole project is OBVIOUSLY a BSG AU that Ron thought up while doing one of those BSG commentaries drunk on absinthe, here's my theory (which I thought up all by myself right before I went to sleep last night.)

If we assume Stockard Channing's character was really Mary McDonnell originally in Ron's head... (which, duh. obvious)


Was Kristin Kreuk's character (Jamie Bamber's t.v. wife), originally Grace Park?

Doesn't that sort of imply that somewhere in Ron's brain there lurks a BSG AU in which Sharon and Lee got together?

Or, wait.

Maybe Jamie's character was actually originally conceived as Tahmoh (they're both blue eyed and Tahmoh's been a cop a zillion times),

and if so, THEREFORE, if that couple was originally Grace and Tahmoh THEN Jamie and Kristin play alterna-future Agathons.

Erm, yeah, flawless! Flawless!

I knew another academic would agree with me! :-DDD-

That's a plausible thought, yes... maybe.

#FACT: I intend to do a manip as soon as I stop doing other manips and writing longfic. I might have to a manip OF MY MANIP... just based on this post. LOL

I love how your brain works! :>D

I think Stockard was def supposed to by Mary. Dammit.

All I know is that I want to see different BSG people turning up in every fracking episode. I hope Kate Vernon & Michael Hogan all are over it. And also, I hope that Ron finds a way to get the actress who played the Hybrid a part as a person who sees the future or something like that. There are so many cracky BSG casting possibilities!

I would be on board with this. Yep, yep, yep.

I had a very long excitable reply about all the awesome storylines I WANT FROM THIS, and LJ ate it. *pout* (and then I had to edit to have matching icons with you and Sbabe. *g*)

To some extent if they continue shooting in Canada, we are guaranteed overlap anyway, but I just love how Ron's so far totally embracing it, and I want it to continue.

But really, the main thing I think I want is Tahmoh to play against type and come on the show as an evil mastermind sorceror or something, because that would be awesome. Everyone would expect sweetheart Helo and then, BAM, EVIL.

and Matthew Bennett can be his evil henchman, since he didn't get enough to do on BSG.

Flawless ... except one little thing. Tahmoh's eyes are green. But hey. That's what colored contacts are for. So still flawless ;)
