I picked this up at my LGS yesterday and spent the day drooling over the ships (I love plastic mini's). After looking at it for a bit I feel like a battlestar theme for the game would have been great; I know there are licensing issues. On a side note, I can't wait for this to hit the table. Looks like lots of fun.

Yeah, but if it was a BSG game, it would end suddenly in a mess of confusion, and leave everyone totally unhappy.

Why not put some BSG minis in there and make your own cards?

I plan on doing a Firefly mod.

I plan to crank up the disco version music of Star Wars full blast the first time I play this!

No fair! They're using brains against us! We removed our brains to make room for guns and explosives!

I think that would incredibly limit the expandability of the game. Look at most successful non-historical mini games, having a variety of forces to choose from is a big plus. I remember reading somewhere that there were other factions in the works. For BSG, there are really just humans and cylons. Or even if you did the different colonies, they would still be fairly similar (as opposed to alien race X that uses bio-engineered ships, alien race y that specializes in boarding attacks, etc.).

If the legacy of Battleship is any indicator I am sure we will see "theme" versions of this game as well.
