    Perhaps Brody comes close.

    Greer is the worst, worst than the senator (Chloe's father) and should have died on 1st episode imho. Way too volatile. Colonel Young is too aggressive, Scott is too submitted and trying to be bossy. TJ is too confused.

    Civil side, Rush is a monster, a mastermind turned bad. Eli is a kid with no maturity barely getting it together by the end, also volatile. Camille is disgustingly greedy for power. Chloe is clueless borderline neurotic.

    None of these people should have been anywhere near a top secret science facility on another planet, not even for any inauguration. So the story of them being caught on Icarus and later stuck on Destiny is just not believable.

    The series would have been so much more interesting with calm and clever people, not a bunch of panic-driven volatile screamers. Over the top drama.

    In case you wonder, I liked the concept, the intrigue, the stories, the soundtrack, the scenes, decor, ambience...

    but none of the characters, except "the ship".
    Yes, because you'd keep your cool and stay calm if you got gated against your will to butt-fk nowhere on the other side of the universe, stuck on an unstoppable ship with little food, water and air & being constantly attacked by hostiles.

    I think Scott, to me, was a very realistic character. He was a young military officer still learning how to command. However, he also had relationships/friendships with both military and civilian characters and sometimes had to choose sides. I would get really excited when Greer would go all badass on people though. Especially with the Lucian Alliance. That was epic and reminds me of some of my military buddies that I've served with. I'll agree that instead of relating sometimes I look for traits in people that I admire that maybe I would like to be more like. Sometimes you see some you're glad you don't have.

    I would relate to Nicholas Rush, Eli Wallace and Adam Brody.

    that was really hilarious, then tj had an amused look, of course the idiot was askin' for it.

    Anyone else thought about this?
    I can relate to Eli, I am a touch overweight and a huge nerd/geek, but I can't relate to his life situation

    greer- i can relate with his anger and doing what needs to be done in situations even if it seems extreme (divided)
    I do things that get the job done even if it means being alienated or losing a friend or two.

    I like to be alone, theirs no one to mess things up.....

    I would have to agree about expecting things out of people....

    I guess I can relate the most to Eli because hes kind of a dork and sometimes says things that no one gets. I can relate to Rush a bit because of his cynical nature. I can also kinda relate to TJ a bit because she trys to be understanding and helpful even when shes in over her head. Those three also happen to be my favorite characters.
    I often say things that most people dont get/they'n to be funny or smart..... the ding with the pie or the simulation is done....

    Always in over my head...

    Always cynical in my head but some what positive on the out, being cynical on the in is easier because the failures of team/self are easier and wins are enormous.

    Since they are the closest examples of real people in the SG franchise, I can relate to just about all of them. So my answer is no.

    my temperament is somewhere between greer & young, i also tend to agree with greer, vanessa and even scott to a degree, and the only characteristic i have in common with rush is not being burdened with the curse of tact.

    I know what you mean. The only character I feel I will never connect with is Rush. I simply dislike the man. And it's not even a good dislike - like with Gaius Baltar - just an annoyed one.

    At the beginning I have problems with that, the characters doesn't appeal to me much specially because they spend too much time trying to get into their stories without much action. The only ones I kind of like since the beginning were Rush and Eli. As the series progress TJ, Greer, Young, Camile pick my interest. The others still needs a bit of work.

    You're supposed to relate to them? Me, I just find them so darn interesting to look at and watch go nuts and kill each other.

    I don't know about relating but I really like TJ and Lisa Park, IMO the two best characters in SGU the rest are just annoying especially Rush and Greer can't stand those two.
