TV News site 'passes off Battlestar Galactica as aircraft carrier'

Design images of sci-fi favourite Battlestar Galactica were apparently used by a Chinese state website to illustrate an article about aircraft carriers.

Well, technically, the Battlestars were more or less aircraft carriers...

There's SOME accuracy to the report in that regard.

I thought about that too. Some of the old box art for Galactica merchendice even called it an aircraft carrier. Wonder if it was a case of a guy who's English was not great plugging the words aircraft carrier into Google image and not realizing that the pic he liked was from a sci-fi fan site.
