Laura Roslin, the education minister and sole surviving member of the Colonial Cabinet, takes the presidential oath of office after the destruction of the Twelve Colonies in the 2003 rebooted Battlestar Galactica.

"You want me to take orders from a school teacher?"

This scene is staged to look just Lyndon B. Johnson taking the oath of office aboard Air Force One just hours after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. (Note Jacqueline Kennedy in her famous pink suit, her husband's blood and brains still splattering her outfit.)

The rebooted series was famous for incorporating images like this in the show.
