Abstract

As a fan of Battlestar Galactica, I was intrigued by the inclusion of disabled main characters, but disappointed by the show's resolution of their stories. Fan fiction provided an alternate way to talk about these concerns, although many works fetishize or romanticize disability. I credit fandom for continuing to educate me and allow me to educate others.
