I watch both of these TV shows, both of which show how people deal with a post holocaust situation.

I was watching Jericho last night and realized there are direct analogies between the two shows.

On the one hand we have the Galactica/Jericho where the rule of law still exists and on the other we have the Pegasus/New Bern where the rule of might has risen to the top. Jericho and New Bern being neighbouring towns in western Kansas in the story.

New Bern is building an army to invade its neighbours and uses torture to try and gain information from prisoners, much like the crew of the Pegasus did.

The Pegasus was concerned with making war on the Cylons while the Galactica was more concerned with ensuring the survival of the citizens under its care.
