11 TV Scientists We Love!


Gaius Baltar, (James Callis) Battlestar Galactica

Dialogue Sample: “No more Mr. Nice Gaius!”

Made the List Because: Yes, he was partly responsible for the destruction of most of the human race, and yes, he kinda had a (forced) hand in OK-ing another almost-massacre on New Caprica, but no one could question the brilliance of Gaius Baltar. His hands were tied most of the time, and when they weren’t, he used that big, Cylon-supporting brain of his to extricate himself from some pretty scary sitches. Plus, he eventually redeems himself, and his love story with Caprica Six was one of the series’ most unique relationships.
