Yes power, your paragraph about Baltar's power grab is spot on IMO. There is a great line in LPOTG that wound up on the cutting room floor that elaborates the power grab motivation. Later after he had been duped self preservation kicked in.

Why should Baltar be one of twelve when he could be the one. So what if his society was in shambles after defeat. He would build new palaces while babies starved going with out medicine. His statue would be in every town square, Charybdis would head Baltar's secret death squads...sound like anybody familiar.
