'Law & Order' - "Snatched"
inside the Galactica Bar
In "Snatched", an episode of 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit', Detective Stabler and a civilian named Gino Parnell walked into a bar called the Galactica Bar to talk to a suspect in the kidnapping of Gino's daughter.

I think it could be a case of long-canceled TV characters hiding in plain sight. I think one of the aliens who arrived on Earth Prime-Time in that ragtag 'Battlestar Galactica' fleet back in 1980 may have decided to hide his true identity behind being the owner of a NYC bar. And perhaps he (or she) deduced that naming that bar after the ship that brought him to the planet Earth was way too obvious to be noticed.

By the way, the original series is in Earth Prime-Time; the remake, considered by many to be the superior version, must be relegated to an alternate TV dimension. I toyed with the idea that history merely repeated itself since the events of that series took place at the dawn of Mankind. However, that never would explain all of the Zonks when characters - like Sheldon on 'The Big Bang Theory' - quote from the show and even discuss particulars of the episodes.

Therefore, the second series of 'Battlestar Galactica', as good as it was, must be considered fictional, created by UNIT in cooperation with the Galactican refugee heirarchy within the context of its mention in Earth Prime-Time. (It could still have happened in an alternate dimension, and I would suggest 'The West Wing' TV dimension.)
This would help to cover-up stories about the real Galactica and also splain why so many TV characters love to use the word "Frak".
