BSG is a fine show but as it is basically authoritarian (sure, they pretend to play some democratic games but in the end it becomes pretty obvious that the series views Adama and the cancer-sick president as the rightful leaders) it is hardly related in any way to Trek except for being its antipode in this respect.

So yeah, as I say all the time this is essentially about whether Trek should stick to the Roddenberryian parameters, being progressive, optimistic and so on, or not. Some people are against it and they are not incidentally also in favour of STXI and the folks who are for it usually have problems with STXI.
Let's be honest about these ideological differences in fandom.
