Both shows actually deal with reality as it faced the USA after 9/11, the most horrible and reckless attack on national soil. A nation trembled in the aftermath of these shattering events. The tremor is still felt throughout these shows, Both try to come to terms with it, and their commercial intent. This is the source for a rather ambiguous morality applied in both shows when it comes to tolerance and human rights. The message seems to be: it is a dirty war and someone has to fight it, be it at the cost of once cherished rights and values. The author compares most episodes of Battlestar Galactica with the third season of ENTERPRISE. He analyzes the political system as described, the judiciary, ethics and religion is given in these shows.
