Let me think about it. I am somewhat interested.

I've always wondered if one could transpose the characters of re-imagined BSG onto the chess board, who would they be?

White would be the Cylons, since they started it first. Lucy LawLess & Dean Stockwell would be white king & Queen since they appear to be the leaders. obviously, Adama & Roslin would be black king & queen.

White knights would be No. 6 & the sharons. Knights always change colour on every move, so do these two. The same goes for Starbuck & Lee and their allegiances btw Adama & Roslin.

Baltar is definitely a white pawn, perhaps a white queen's pawn that starts up the game.

Rooks have a support function. They help "raise the bar" in chess speak. They can be used to cast "nets" in a opprssive manner in conjunction with bishops. The Chief and Leoben models fit right here.

Tigh is definitely on the black king's flank, as either a bishop or black king's pawn.

Anybody else got any thoughts, or can help complete this chess board? :p
