The problem of personal identity seems to be one of the central problems of the new Battlestar Galactica. This understanding is eventually discredited and personal
identity is shown to be a concept, completely irelevant and marginal for the understanding of the series. In the paper we present some of the personal identity criteria, common to the anglosaxon analytical philosophy. We further show how these criteria were interpreted, evaluated and finally discarded through the series. We then present a conceptualization of personal identity which we believe to adequately represent the Battlestar Galactica position in relation to this problem.
