Battlestar Galactica vs Power Rangers R.P.M.
"Good writers borrow, great writers steal."

Ever since I finally watched the reimagining of Battlestar Galactica, I can't shake that Power Rangers R.P.M. is really BSG... for kids!
...If you took out the spaceships and replaced the religious metaphors with meta humor.

Characters are listed by R.P.M. character significance, and expect unmarked spoilers due to the nature of both shows.

There are only two (major) R.P.M. characters that I cannot line up with corresponding BSG counterparts: Gem & Gemma. If anyone could figure out where to sort them, I'm all ears.
