Better Eureka, looks like they are going to kill off more characters....
Scifi shows religion themes:
1. Battlestar Galactica (1978): Mormon influence... Glenn Larson is a Mormon..
2. Stargate SG1: At the end, I think it was a subtle warning about Radical Islam.
3. Star Trek (TOS): Pro Christian
4. Stargate Universe: Pro Christian
Anything else that I'm missing???

What would you say makes TOS and SGU pro-Christian?

I remember one episode of STTOS that referenced Christ, other that that it espoused a pretty humanistic doctrine.
SGU, pro Christian? To me is was more existential.

TOS had its moments, no doubt forced on Roddenberry by the network, but the main tone is very humanist, in line with the opinions of its creator.
Star Trek TNG was very anti-christian, although in its later seasons curiously pro-spirituality. There's one episode, I think called "first contact", which could have been commissioned by the international Atheist convention. Tragically its also a very good episode.
