sabrina_il asked for thoughts about Battlestar Galactica’s Anastasia “Dee” Dualla in the Impromptuthon, but one hundred words wasn't likely to do this fantastic character justice. Though the prompt was for meta, I've mixed it in with a picspam; she'll know why ;)
Dee has been one of my favourite Battlestar characters from the start and there’s so much to celebrate about her arc. When we meet Dee in the mini-serires, she's a Petty Officer serving aboard the Battlestar Galactica, in Communications. She functions as an everyman for a great deal of the first season; it's through her we make several discoveries that are key to the culture of the show, such as the Memorial Wall. Dee dates; Dee works hard; and she never stops. So much of her storyline goes unrecognized, buried in the romantic story arc that dominates the third season and bleeds into the second and fourth, but I'll never forget the woman who told a flustered Billy Keikeya "In or out."
