I think it has that "Drama in space" feel that I got from watching BSG, but I doubt it will have that little touch of something that made people like BSG. Personally, I don't like BSG at all, but I can respect that a lot of people do. I could never get into it even after watching 5 episodes. I'm hoping this sticks to the Stargate formula that I have loved - tried and true 10 seasons of SG-1 and 5 of Atlantis.
Maybe it will be like Voyager for Star Trek. It's people's least favorites, but I enjoyed it for what it was.
