As usual..I'll have to get the show off the internet, as we are still on season 2 (!) on SciFi here  banghead 

Found a link to the catalog of items up for auction:

Also great to see Caprica has been approved for a 20 episode season 1, which will begin filming this year and will air in 2010, even though it won't feature the current actors.

BTW...would love it if this beauty was up for auction Big grin

Could one of you please fill me on BG? We don't get much over here and our internet has very low bandwidth and is intermittent!

What season (#) is the final season?

I'm assuming "Caprica" is a spin-off, does it take place before or after the Cylon attack?

Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much,

Quoting Fridgmus (Reply 2):

This is currently the final season - 4.5 (BSG seasons are split into two, with 4.0 being screened early last year).

There will be up to two TV films after the end of the series.

'Caprica' details how the Cylons came to be and is set 50 years before the current series.

By 'fill you in', do you want a run down on where the series is currently?

From what I have heard, neither movie needs the props or sets already constructed - the one currently most known about is called 'The Plan' and covers what is essentially the mini series and first season of BSG from the Cylons point of view.

I've only seen AFN on the TV's in the Dining Facility and have not seen BG on them and I've asked the few guys I know with AFN pumped into their trailers if they've seen it and they've said no. But that doesn't mean its not there. I haven't seen a program guide, had a hard time just getting on the AFN website! And like I said, our bandwidth is small & intermittent and I've had problems just trying to get to A.net! We're building our camp up and things will improve in the future.

We usually have to wait until they come out on DVD and then we order them from Amazon!

I checked the AFRTS website. BSG episodes 13-18 air 26 Jan, Feb 2 9 16 23, and Mar 2 at 11PM Baghdad time on AFN Spectrum.

FYI, the DVD of the first half of season four is supposed to go on sale on January 6th.

So, who's the final cylon? I'd be thinking the President for a long time, but now I'm not so sure..

Well lets see, pretty much has to be female...

So Roslyn... enh i don't think so, too obvious
Starbuck too obvious, though she was away when the "burst" occured, so maybe she just didn't "unlock"?
Dualla, maybe
Racetrack, maybe
Someone from Baltar's little band maybe?

But ponder this but what if they are already "dead" and the other cylons are hiding the resurrected one?

2 VERY viable options spring to mind then:

Ellen Tigh
Admiral Cain

Who knows... we shall see!

Hmm.... but don't you think the final cylon should be a major character? Otherwise it's going to be an anticlimax. I still think it could be Starbuck or the President.

It can't be Roslyn as she had the Cylon transfusion - wouldn't have needed it if she was it. My bet is on Kara as any one else would be anticlimactic! I really wished Dualla had a bigger role in the series, but no point promoting her in towards the end of the series.

Perhaps Moo is the Final One as he always has the inside scoop!  Wink

Could be...but then again could also be Cally. Think about it...she's dead, and had a kid with a Cylon. So if she turns out to be a cylon, does that mean the 'final five' are capable of reproducing like humans?

D'anna did say that only four were currently in the fleet, and four were revealed. However, this could mean that the fifth was aboard the Cylon ship, or it could be a bluff.

Remember, D'anna said she would reveal the four she knew to be among the Colonial fleet, but she never had to - the four revealed themselves. She could have been bluffing in order to force them to do that.

Yeah, but it wasn't easy. Tigh had to be put in a launch tube before the others were revealed. Except of course for Tory; Anders and Tyrol were pretty hesitant.

But do we know the final cylon has to be a female?

Going back to the 'last supper' photo, Ron Moore has said that the fifth cylon is not in that photo. So we can eliminate Laura Roslin, Lee Adama, Baltar, Starbuck, Helo or Bill Adama.
http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune....nt_tv/2008/04/ron-moore-on-ba.html

Also, the final cylon had already been decided in the first season, so it can't be any new characters introduced after season 1. But one thing is sure - who the fifth cylon is, is more important to the storyline than who the final four were.
What can be more shocking than revealing Tigh or Tyrol as a cylon?
So if the final cylon is a female, then it has to be either Dualla or Cally. I'm betting its Cally. They better have a good explanation for Starbuck though, the show has been awesome so far, hope they don't ruin it with a stupid explanation for Starbuck's miraculous return.

Ok my mind is having some fun with this... and can't you just see the cliffhanger, D'Anna brings Tigh and gang to meet the 5th, opens the door and Ellen Tigh just says "hi Saul"... Jaw drop from the group (especially Saul Tigh) and cut to commercial?

Ok so I'm over thinking maybe, but thats just the kind of scene im expecting... or she brings in Adama and it's Caine... or Tyrol and it's Cally...but i honestly doubt it's Cally cause that would mean there is only 1 hybrid... and somewhere i could swear the producers said there were now TWO confirmed hybrids.

I've been trying to figure out who else it could be... and come up blank.

What to watch next??

Stargate - gone
Stargate Atlantis - last episode
Battlestar Galactica - last season

So what's left to watch for ScFi nuts who aren't into the fantasy shows (Sanctuary is IMHO poor despite Amanda Tapping). UK Tv seems to be into fantasy overload at the moment (Merlin/Demons etc)

Endless repeats of Startrek?

A new series of Firefly? (I wish!!!)

94 ZANL188 : Did Juliani actually lose his leg or is Gaetas missing leg just a clever bit of special effects?
95 Comorin : It really surprises me that people whose technology came up with Cylons and 'Jumps' still depend on 20th century prosthetics (Gaeta). I was surprised
96 ZANL188 : One of the neat things about great sci fi story telling is that you're never really sure that what you thought happened actually DID happen. I mean w
97 Comorin : The preview of next week's episode shows her emerging from the gooey tub! While they're at it, how about a new eye for Col. Tigh? How hard can that b
98 Moo : Season 4 Episode 12 - A Disquiet Follows My Soul. About 10 minutes in. Helo: 'Athena tells me that these upgrades should triple the fleets jump capac
99 ZANL188 : Ok back to my original question: "Triple the fleets jump capacity" How? Longer range? More frequent jumps? I understand that it's a upgrade and that
100 Moo : At this point in time I think you are asking questions which have both been answered previously in the series (the Cylons superior jump capability ha
101 ZANL188 : Neither the nature of the upgrade or, and perhaps more importantly, the military necessity has been explained. It's just the dramatic basis of the ar
102 Tugger : The upgrades will improve the jump capability such that they we at least match, and no longer be inferior to, their enemy that is pursuing them with
103 Moo : They have been explained within the story as much as required, the fact that you do not accept that explanation and require a more indepth one does n
104 C172Akula : Battlestar refuses to do the 'technobabble' thing, so just accept the reasoning they state and enjoy the excellent storytelling. Here is a quick reaso
105 Klaus : They've obviously tried to make identification of the audience with the story as easy as possible while keeping the science fiction aspect just as far
106 Springbok747 : WTF? 13 Cylon models? So there is another cylon? So Daniel Greystone was #7? Damn I'm so confused now! What if he is Starbuck's father? Ellen seems to
107 Comorin : WOW! is right! What a great episode - a super 'Reveal' !! Not to detract, but even today the word 'subroutine' is a little passe.... I want to move to
108 NorthStarDC4M : So the 5 made the Cylon 8... and Ellen Tigh is basically mother to the cylon skinjobs... ok thats one frack of a curve. I always wondered why we never
109 Comorin : So what draws us all to this thread? We're perfect strangers, and if we were all seated in the same cabin on a flight we might appear to have little i
110 NorthStarDC4M : oh one more thing... Daniel... which Daniel... I doubt it's Greystone myself... though he might of been named Daniel as some sort of homage to him...
111 Springbok747 : Ok wow having watched the episode again..several questions arise: What is the 'colony' that Cavil speaks to Ellen about? Now that Sam is a vegetable -
112 ZANL188 : The problem is that the fleet was in mutiny because of the upgrade and the Cylon techs sent to do it. Aren't you curious why all of sudden it's no lo
113 Comorin : Yeah, I was really taken aback when PC showed up out of nowhere! It was even wierder than hearing "All Along..." I have a feeling that Sam will 'come
114 ZANL188 : I'm afraid the actor who plays PC, John Hodgman, is going to be pretty well typecast by that series of commercials.... I kept waiting for him to say
115 Bramble : Exactly....will have to watch again as I missed the 'colony' reference.
116 Comorin : TGIF!!! 8pm - 'The Summer Glau Chronicles' - oops , I mean 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles' 9pm - 'Dollhouse' 10 pm - 'Battlestar Galactica' Life is good
117 Springbok747 : You people up there in North America are so lucky. I have to get all the above shows off the net here. Our TV here is full of crap
118 NorthStarDC4M : ok so... this weeks spoilers... Ellen Tigh is still a bitch Baltar now has his own little army Six's baby is dead and Anders brain is no longer AWOL H
119 ZANL188 : ...and Boomer is at home... in the brig... Ellen didn't waste anytime getting back to her old self did she?
120 NorthStarDC4M : and oh frack i just thought of something... I don't think Boomer has switched sides... I think she's leading the others straight to the fleet. Either
121 Springbok747 : Thats what I thought too. Wow...Ellen is still a bitch. Some thoughts on the cylon goo. The trailer for next week's episode showed a clip of Galactic
122 ZANL188 : Agreed but with Capricas baby dead the ep does establish the need for humans & cylons to "get along" - unless of course the 5 decide to rebuild the r
123 Comorin : Well, at least you're not shivering out there! I was not pleased with the last episode. Every now and then the show lurches into Soap Opera land, and
124 ZANL188 : Edward James "Give me my check! Gracias" Olmos
125 Springbok747 : Edward James Olmos and Michael Hogan. Even though the last episode was too much like a soap-opera, the chemistry between Adama and Tigh is evident. T
126 Lumberton : Could someone please post the link to the last episode on the web? Missed it. Much obliged.
127 Comorin : My humble opinion: I think Olmos is the center that holds the show together. In the early episodes, it's hard to forget Tricia Helfer's role. After th
128 NorthStarDC4M : alllrighty then... ... ... yes spoilers... ok so... Boomer is: A kidnapper A bitch and truly is a traitor... Starbuck... is a hybrid? Daddy= Daniel/7?
129 Post contains images JCS17 : I'll let Ogre tell you about my feelings towards Sci-Fi garbage: NERRRDDDSSS!!!
130 Springbok747 : Great episode...much much better than the last one! What the frack is right...wow! Boomer is a total bitch! Tyrol is such an idiot. He knows what she
131 EA CO AS : No kidding! Why doesn't this effin' guy airlock himself already and put himself out of our misery? Just SO sick of his ass...
132 ZANL188 : Adama, the President, and Lee should have known from the moment Tyrol said "You're gonna kill her?" that Tyrol was up to no good... especially Adama.
133 Comorin : Musical cues... are we going 'Close Encounters' here? I'm still rooting for a '2001' style ending...a supernova tour would be very nice, thank you! Th
134 JM017 : What do you mean?
135 Comorin : In the last episode someone feels her carotid artery (neck) for a pulse and it looked like she died. I didn't watch clips from next week's episode so
136 JM017 : Woa....I completely missed that. I have to go watch that episode again (God bless DVR.... )
137 Comorin : Hopefully I wasn't projecting!
138 NorthStarDC4M : No you weren't, i rewatched tonight, i think shes dead as a... ummm... dead? Thats about all i picked up from the rewatch though.
139 ZANL188 : Not quite yet.... Although Galacticas days do seem to be numbered....
140 Springbok747 : I am beginning to wonder...is the Galactica the dying leader? She certainly is dying. But about Head Six......she is an angel?! And what the hell is
141 Comorin : First of all, my deepest apologies for 'projecting' Roslin's demise...just wishful thinking, I guess. Trivia - I just realized that Cavil's speech to
142 Lumberton : Adama's comments on Glactica's exit lead me to believe that it will go out in a blaze of glory--possibly the destruction of the Cylon colony.[Edited
143 ZANL188 : Yeah Adama was briefing a one way mission in the trailers for next week....
144 NorthStarDC4M : Yup... and im guessing that will be the final 2 hour series finale's crescendo... Galactica committing kamikaze style suicide to destroy the.. umm...
145 Comorin : I feel your pain, bro... So how is it going to end? Anybody care to put down their opinions? There are quite a few loose ends to be tied up real soon
146 ZANL188 : Well we are down to the final episode... - Roslyn is getting worse. - Thrace was Zacks significant other... that's gotta mess with Lees head... - What
147 Springbok747 : Two episodes left and they just give us more questions and answer none. I am sure I will love the final episode, but I am also sure that I will be dis
148 Comorin : One thing I'll miss for sure is the beautiful production design on BSG. The visuals are spectacular, from the design of the base ships, to the balleti
149 ZANL188 : I enjoyed the CGI flyovers of Caprica in this ep - Spectacular! Good setup for the new series as well...
150 Post contains links Lumberton : Yes, but you'll still have "Three Card Cylon". http://gamecenter.scifi.com/games/threecardcylon/
151 Comorin : lol...I guess I had that coming! Yes, I think it'll be really good...It's supposed to take place 50 years prior so I presume there will be a new cast
152 Post contains images JM017 : It was a known fact. Given all that has happened between Lee and Kara in the show, Lee seemed to handle it well....  [Edited 2009-03-17 18:50:07]

155 NorthStarDC4M : There was the biggest one of all... "There are those that believe life here began out there..." Guess getting to Earth was the ultimate omage...
156 EA CO AS : I haven't seen the finale yet (yes, I'm one of those people who like spoilers) and this one caused a wave of satisfaction to wash over me. I can't be
157 Comorin : A very satisfying ending despite the corny 'Out of Africa' stuff poor Adama Sr. had to act through. Too bad it was Tory's neck and not hers... I loved
158 Post contains links ZANL188 : And apparently advising the UN! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/7956325.stm
159 Springbok747 : Wow! What an ending. Even though they didn't explain Kara, Head Six or Head Baltar (they're angels..wtf?) Yeah, I was expecting her to go off with poo
160 Post contains links Comorin : Alas, the 'Caprica' series takes place 50 years earlier than BSG so we can't get no relief... Is BSG the greatest TV show of all time? The Guardian t
161 Johnboy : Did i see Lou Diamond Phillips in the new "Caprica" series? That's always the kiss of death for me. and the previews almost seem a bit too "90210"-ish
162 Lumberton : It was entertaining, but my vote for that honor would go to "Hill Street Blues".
163 Comorin : Whaa? You dare say that on a BSG fan thread full of grieving a.netters? Be careful out there...
164 ZANL188 : On second viewing I noticed that the Valley Forge (a ship from 1972s Silent Running and the original BSG) was prominently featured as Adama launched
165 Post contains links Lumberton : Well, for those who can't wait until "The Plan", hopefully this'll provide a fix. http://www.pcworld.com/article/161671/article.html?tk=nl_dnxnws
166 Comorin : Hey I just realized that Edward James Olmos was in Blade Runner hunting Cyborgs! No wonder he says that in 25 years people will think of BSG as a clas
167 ZANL188 : Hera represented the only way for Cavil & Co to reproduce. Without her all Cavils skin jobs will die off - no possibilities of resurrection ships now
168 Springbok747 : So Cavil couldn't just frack another human lady? I'm sure it would have worked both ways...after all chief thought Nikki was his kid..and Tigh got #6
169 ZANL188 : Cavil go for the whole biological reproduction thing? The man wants to be a machine... Besides does he have any humans available for experimentation?
170 JM017 : Will this be another series or miniseries? I wasn't sure and could not get a hint from the brief mention.
171 Klaus : It was really one of the better series I've watched in years... and the sendoff was not a bad one all in all. The leisurely pace of the final minutes
172 Comorin : Well put! Klaus, as 'evolutionista', wouldn't having human #1 with European features confuse future anthropologists? Blond hair and light pigmentatio
173 Klaus : Quite so. But at the level of detachment from rationality Galactica reached in its later episodes that's really just small potatoes by comparison...!
174 Comorin : That's true. Given that all TV spaceships are able to bend space-time to provide artificial gravity, I shouldn't be so picky! BTW, this is the ending
