Inadvertant Parallels

I was drafting out Chapters 18-22 of Book 11 this week, and just yesterday it hit me... without intending to, I'm parodying Battlestar Galactica, only minus the pseudo-spiritual mumbo-jumbo.

By chapter 18, this is the state of play in the WA-verse: Two large ships, one named Pegasus and one named Pax Galactica are leading a fleet of smaller ships (few if any of which could be described as rag-tag) on a final quest to find Earth.

And, looking ahead to the end of Book 12, there are some weak parallels to the end of the Reimagined Battlestar Galactica series, but I don't think it's going to end in a way that anyone sees coming.
