Can 17 Precincts Make Up For One Flawed Battlestar?

Am I the only one who got the strangest feeling of deja vu when I read that 17th Precinct, the new NBC pilot created by Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore, will star Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber and James Callis of... Battlestar Galactica? Is history repeating for anyone else, and if it is, is that a good thing or not?
