* ''{{Series/Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' has "godsdammit" and "Oh my gods!". A lot. Though "Jesus!" has been inadvertently ad-libbed by the actors. Also in the mini-series as-yet-unrevealed Cylon agents would talk about God in the singular without the other characters thinking it was strange. There's an "Oh my God, they're Cylons!" heard on one occasion too. Monotheism existed in the Colonies so it is normal that ''some'' human characters utter it. We just don't know ''how'' common it was by the time of the holocaust (in ''Series/{{Caprica}}'', its sheer existence is borderline offensive). The cases in the Miniseries were probably more the result of the human belief system not being fully shaped by the writers yet.

** FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse has the usual positive invocation of Princess Luna, but much more common (and noticeable) is the ''negative'' invocation of Corona's sun. Nearly every curse in this setting is something along the lines of "Gone to the sun", "Go burn in the sun", or "Sun blind you".
