In one of the podcasts, RDM said that the original plan was to end the mutiny with Gaeta, Zarek, and the other mutineers exiled to a handful of ships that didn't want to follow Galactica anymore, rather than the executions.  I would love to see this as the premise for a nice, plotty AU.  Who would stay with the Fleet, and who would go with Gaeta and Zarek's faction?  What would they do without a military vessel for protection?  Would they find Earth, or colonize somewhere else, or have a completely different strategy?  I think this fic would give not on Gaeta and Zarek some meaty material, but it might also give a lot of other minor characters (Seelix, Kelly, Narcho, etc.) a real chance to shine.  If it were me, I'd throw in some Gaeta/Zarek, since I imagine Hoshi stayed with the Fleet--but again, that part's just me.  I have a fic to-do list as long as my arm right now, so I'm not exactly taking on more potentially long fics at the moment.  I'd love to read this, though!

I would love to see this, too. Wouldn't write it, but would love to read it. (Although Hoshi might have come. I can't believe he ever knew about the mutiny beforehand- he wouldn't have kept quiet if he'd known. But Gaeta/Zarek is totally fun, too. Hmmm..... :) )

It would also be funny if they found Earth 2.0 before the others did...

This is probably why RDM didn't go for it - they might just have pwned Adama and Roslin, LOL.
