I recently tried to start watching the Battlestar Galactica (re-imagined) series, and just had to stop after the first episode, "33", because I couldn't understand the logic.
Shortly, the story is that the spaceship battlestar galactica is hunted by Cylons, and to escape, the ship has to "jump" (Faster-than-light travel) in space every 33 minutes.
So the whole episode is about how the crew is fighting against sleep deprivation after 130 hours of this hunt.
Here is what I do not understand, and maybe it's just because I missed something or I'm just dumb, and then sorry for asking:
why aren't they taking turns for sleeping? Apart from people having very unique competence, why can't they altern their work with someone else of the crew? Do they have to be awake for each FTL jump?
I have the feeling that either I am missing something, or the whole episode is based on nothing, please enlighten me.
