Zaha Hadid's Dubai Opera House Design Makes Me See Cylon Raiders

I'm just wondering if British architect Zaha Hadid is a Battlestar Galactica fan. It seems so, as her design for the Dubai Opera House
is reminiscent of those croissant-shaped fighters that zing through
space, facing down Starbuck et al. The development will go up on an
island in Dubai Creek, and as well as hosting an auditorium with room
for 2,500 people to hear fat ladies singing, it will house an 800-seat
playhouse, arts gallery, performing arts school and six-star themed
hotel. [Dezeen]
