Battlestar Gaylactica?

SPOILER ALERT: With half a season left to go, could Sci-Fi’s critical darling (and our favorite way to depress ourselves) Battlestar Galactica be gaying up its cast?

While the show deals frankly with sexuality and gender roles, the only gay character on the show thus far has been Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) whose relationship with Gina (Tricia Helfer) turned sour after Cain found out that Gina was a frakkin’ toaster, ordered her officers to interrogate and sexually assault her and then, after Gina escaped, she returned the favor by busting a cap in Cain’s skull…cap.

But rumors are circulating that two BSG crew members will be revealed, not as the final Cylons, but as gay in the “The Face of the Enemy”, a 10-part webisode series that begins airing this Friday, in advance of the March season premiere.

Find out who, plus a photo of some BSG-lovin’, after the jump.

It’s Gaeta, obviously. According to those who’ve seen an advance cut, Lt. Felix Gaeta (Alessandro Juliani) winds up making DRADIS contact with blink-and-you’d-have-missed-him, Lt. Hoshi (Brad Dryborough). Below’s a screen cap:
