Starbuck: BSG Season 4
Three reasons to love Katee Sackhoff
She is a tough chick who looks as beautiful in a flight suit as she does in a dress.
She quit smoking when she realized she's become a role model for young women.
Katee quote: "I've always said that if a woman can do it better, by all means let her."
What do you think? What is Kara "Starbuck" Thrace?
In light of all we've seen so far, including the revelation from the mysterious Cylon "God" hybrid from Razor, what do you think? What will become of Kara Thrace and her Special Destiny (I love saying that)? Is she the savior of mankind? Or the "Harbinger of Doom?"
One more question: What is Starbuck's "Special Destiny?"

A little background on Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
Kara had intended to be a professional Pyramid ball player until her knee gave out. She eventually joined the military, where she found more acceptance than she, an abused child, had felt at home. Although Kara's mother had served in the Marines in the First Cylon War, Kara was the first person in the family to become an officer. Kara's mother was not content with her daughter's military record, however, claiming she is not disciplined enough, and that she is wasting her natural talent for flying.
As a Flight Instructor at the Colonial Flight School, she met and became romantically involved with one of her students, Zak Adama. Although Zak told her that he did not want any special treatment from her, Kara passed him even though he failed Basic Flight - she could not bring herself to crush his dreams.
Her leniency cost Zak his life when he was killed in his first Viper mission. After his death, Starbuck met his father, Commander Adama. He realized that Starbuck and Zak had been engaged and brought her under his command as a Lieutenant. Zak's death, however, created a wedge between Commander Adama and his other son, Lee "Apollo" Adama, who blames his father for Zak's death. After the funeral, Lee broke off all contact with his father and Starbuck.
Starbuck has a natural talent for flying and is considered Galactica's best pilot, although she is also known for being an avid card player and drinker. Commander Adama loves Kara despite her flaws and considers her something of a surrogate daughter. However, Starbuck and Colonel Tigh share a mutual sense of loathing.
