Who aboard the Battlestar Galactica can handle their capsicum? Do they like spicy food?
Adama: Hell yeah! Pass the habanero.
Roslin: She can do it, but it’s not her favorite thing. She doesn’t really make a habit of it.
Billy: Not so much. He has a very sensitive GI. Mild salsa is about the best he can do.
Gaius: Has a high tolerance but uses it in “interesting” ways.
Six: Yes. But she’s not out to prove anything.
Doc Cottle: Yes, but he doesn’t like anything fancy–tabasco is his standby. He does have the disturbing habit of putting pickled jalapenos in his oatmeal.
Dee: She can handle a decent amount of spice, but she’s not much of a fan of it.
Apollo: Oh dear, no! He’s a delicate flower. Poor thing has endured many painful dinners being mocked by his dad and Kara.
Starbuck: Are you kidding? She snorts wasabi, uses habanero as a hangover cure, and hangs out with Papa ‘dama.
Tyrol: He didn’t used to like spicy food, but recently he’s started using it as a form of masochism.
Cally: She likes jalapeno poppers, but that’s about it.
Helo: He uses chilis in curing his meat, but he’s not in Dad or Starbuck territory. He does have a decently high tolerance.
Sharon: Yes. Like Tyrol she uses spice as self-flagellation.
Gaeta: He tries, but it upsets his tummy.
Tigh: Yeah, he sometimes mixes it in with his booze. He can’t handle the same amount Adama does. He once lost a chile eating contest to Starbuck and doesn’t like to talk about it.
Ellen: She has no real spice tolerance, but she’ll eat gourmet food if it’s spicy..
Tori: Generally spicy food aggravates her ulcer, but she’s been experimenting with Gaius.
Anders: No. He tries to keep up with Starbuck and fails.
Leoben: He can handle it, but he’s a bit of a gourmet and prefers things subtle.
Zarek: He can handle basic spicy, but nothing outlandish.
