Rumours circulate on the internet that the forthcoming Battlestar Galactica webisodes could feature a gay kiss between two male characters
According to Ain’t It Cool News, and other sites, the forthcoming Galactica webisodes, which will take place between the two halves of season four, will feature a gay kiss between two male characters. Other websites are so reporting similar speculation after a screenshot revealed two characters looking as if they are about to kiss. The two characters involved in the suspected gay kiss are Lt. Felix Gaeta [Alessandro Juliani] and recurring character Lt. Hoshi [Brad Dryborough].
The Sci Fi Channel, broadcasters of Battlestar Galactica, are refusing to confirm or deny the speculation but many Galactica fan sites have been reporting the rumour, especially since the screenshot was published which seem to confirm the rumour. It wouldn’t be the first time the series has featured as same-sex couple as the television movie Razor revealed that Admiral Helena Cain [Michelle Forbes] was in a relationship with a woman [Tricia Helfer], who was revealed to be a Cylon agent. Fans of Galactica have also long since speculated that Gaeta was gay but also suspect him of being the final Cylon.
There’s no news as to when the 10 webisodes, The Face of the Enemy, would be released on the internet but with Galactica due to return in January it’s highly likely the webisodes will be online during December.
