Video: Battlestar Galactica versus Star Wars

While the conflict doesn't actually settle which franchise is cooler or who would necessarily win such a battle (for my money, it depends on the commanders involved; Thrawn versus Cain would be route in favor of the Empire, whilst Piett versus Adama means the Colonials win in a shutout), the eye-candy is worth the price of admission. Enjoy.
