I wonder exactly how many times after a successful toasting shopping mission Starbuck hoisted her stein filled with victory beer. Did Lee Adama ever make Top Gun? Not as far as I remember, but if he did, it was certainly not with as much style. Reckless or not, Starbuck is my favorite of the Galactica pilots and Sackhoff is my preferred actor for the role. I might even go so far as to say that Starbuck is the only Top Gun that matters. That’s right, I said it.
This Battlestar Galactica Top Gun Stein is the Perfect Accessory for a 100+ Hour Television Marathon
We all know of another movie filled with cocky fighter pilots trying to make good without playing by the rules. At most, the best accessory from that movie is a shiny pair of mirrored Ray Bans. That is nothing compared to the beverage vessel perfection that is the Battlestar Galactica Top Gun Stein. This is without even mentioning that a Cylon is a far more fearsome enemy than the Russians (unless they are all secretly skinjobs).
Starbuck could outmaneuver any pilot at the Top Gun school and looks way better as a visual for Kenny Loggins music. If you have anyone in your life like Starbuck, they deserve the Battlestar Galactica Top Gun Stein. If they have yet to watch the epic series in its entirety, watch it with them. Buy them the stein, fill it with coffee, and tell them to prepare to lose the next 100ish hours of their life. When Portlandia gets it right, Portlandia gets it right!
