Seriously, point taken. Interesting perspective. Didn't give it that thought.

I still have my theories regarding the Cylons and the 13th Colony, I thin kwe are going to have a shock there.

that may explain the Chief at work . . . or a couple dozen troops I've had over a period of time.

Yes, it will be interesting.

I am curious, however, like eveyone else . . . who did D'Ann see inthe Temple . . .when she said something like "Oh, it's you, I had no idea"?

Must have been someone that gave her a pause, a reason for reverence. Who? Admiral Adama (nope), Baltar (nope), someone rather high in the order of things. I almost discount Madam Pres becuase of the whole breast cancer episode. She couldn'thave gotten breast cancer if she were a machine - could she have? And surely,Doc Coddle would have picked that up in his numerous exams, eh?

Regardless, someone of reverence to D'Anna is a Cylon. Her reaction - before they boxed her - in the Temple - displayed nothing less than amazement.

We shall see. . .

What if the 'Lords of Kobal' are the five models? Their likeness would be known to all and thus they would be recognisable.

Ha, that would explain D'Anna's reverence. Also put a very large spin into the story line. Interesting to note she bypasssed several of the "figures" in the Temple. Probably recognized them right off . . . the 7 currently known models perhaps, herself included.

What if the Lords of Kobal are all Cylons. . . or rather all the Cylon models are done in their likeness?

I think the Cylon history goes back further than we assume - Kobal looked to be a highly technological society, which managed to move a massive amount of its populace to other worlds far away.

Now, the 12 colonies history may be a little muddy because they may have regressed a few times in their own, independant history, but I personally think the Cylon concept goes all the way back to Kobal.

ANCFlyer - thanks for clearing up the Officer's titles  thumbsup 

I have stayed out of this thread since I received some incorrect info (that I also posted) about Season 3.5 being rebroadcast a week later in HD - It's actually Season 3.0, so I missed Episode 1 of 3.5  Sad

BTW, I think the show does a great job in helping us civvies understand what the Military goes through...

Well, I guess Baltar is NOT a Cylon . . . .


Maybe . . . .


And looks like the little love quadrangle with Lee, Duala, Kara and whatshisname is at least temporarily solved.

So, when will we see The Admiral and the President in a romantic encounter. I think it's coming . . . eventually.

Otherwise, quite a let down episode. Didn't really answer a lot of questions, didn't really ask any. Rather droned along for an hour.

Ok, try this on for size -

The hybrid told D'anna and Baltar that the final five would be revealed to the one that entered the temple.

D'anna saw five in her vision and then promptly died.

However, when Baltar is captured, I can only see five people in there other than him - the Chief and four others.

Hmmm.......?

Agree completely with this.

I also want to complain about the lighting of this episode. I'm watching this on a 65" digital HDTV. Everything was so damn dark I couldn't see anything. I wish somebody would turn up the lights.

Yeah, although they really tried to obfuscate the points...  mischievous 

It'll probably remain interesting either way, just as long as they spare us with too much soapy crap.

The current episode was decent, but nothing major. We'll see if they manage to come up with a proper story line for jailed Six...

Ok so who was Adama in bed with? I thought it was Kara at first but could be the image of his ex...

IMHO Adama should have jettisoned the pix of his wife when he blew the door for Chief & Callie.

Jeez seeing Callie beatup again... damn... and again Chief is responsible...

Galacticas material condition is suffering. The trip thru the maelstrom (same ep where they lost Kat) seems to have taken it's toll

Have they changed writers or something? It seems like a lot of filler episodes going off in some soap opera direction.

I'm about ready for them to find Earth, have a big showdown, and end the series before they jump the shark.

Just rewatched the ep. It was a blonde, pretty sure it was his ex.

The scenes with Adama and his ex were interesting. It seemed that he was well aware of who he was and where he was (aboard Galactica) but the audience saw him in a different place - curious. Well written and executed but doesn't seem to have a role in the grand scheme of things --- at least not yet.

I dont know if its been mentioned here before, but the 'Survivor Count' in the opening credits is not infact static and changes based on the events in that episode.

For example, prior to the Pegasus arriving, the count was 47,853. The episode where Pegasus joined the fleet had the count rise to 49,605.

The last episode of Season 2 had the count at 49,550.

Theres no count until after the fleet is rescued, and it has it at 41,435.

From that, we know roughly how many were lost during the Cylon occupation and resulting rescue.

Indeed, however this one being one of the less annoying ones. The ex-wife had been a (painful) factor for both Adamas right from the start, so it was only proper to go there eventually. It was a good "hook" for another change in their interpersonal dynamic.

Whoa, hold it - we're not that far down, even if the writers could use a swift kick in their behinds...!

The whole airlock affair was again implausibly reckless - you don't approach repairs on critical gear with an unknown extent of damage that casually, without quite a bit more preparation, comprehensive pre-checks and above all appropriate safety equipment (pressure suits). Except if you've got a severe excess of qualified personnel and you can spare the loss...!   

Okay, so let's hope for a bit more "meat" in the upcoming episodes.

Well, consider that the Galactica was being decommissioned, and half of its flight deck capacity had already been converted to a tourist trap. You can bet your panties that most usable equipment was being shipped off for use elsewhere in the fleet - infact Im amazed that Galactica had a Viper fleet at the end (yeah, I know, there wouldnt be much of a story without it).

My point is that she was at the end of her life, and there hasnt exactly been any supply depots along the way  Smile

Plus all the Vipers there for the decommissioning.

And that radioactive cloud crap they flew through several episodes back. Hell, even the outer hull looks rather rugged these days.


All in all, I don't find the Airlock deal too off base. Galactica's had a rough ride, even with her resupply from Pegasus, not to mention spending a year in orbit around New Caprica with a depleted crew - read that: no maintenance.

Yeah, I'm pretty thoroughly disgusted with this "Chief".

I brought this up way back Season 1, that the "Chief of the Boat" is to be above reproach. That is why he/she is the "Chief of the Boat". I was told that he wasn't necessarily the "Chief of the Boat", but the flight deck chief. I bought that in Season 1 . . . but to date I've yet to see anyone else that is COB.

It's my supposition that that Tirel is the senior enlisted man on this crew, and as such, he's a frackin' disgrace.

That said though, Galactica (presumably the other ships in the fleet as well) needs some serious depot time....

You're right of course, but I was thinking more along the lines of spare parts, heavy maintenance kinds of things. Not food, water, etc.

Ragnar was a weapons depot. And they weren't there very long.

Other than the meet up with Pegasus, I don't recall them docking at any facility capable of depot maintenance - or any maintenance . . .

Well if you arent willing to engage in a little joke, then by all means consider it flamebait.

But we were talking about the lack of spacesuits here, as it originated from the Chief and Cally being stuck in an airlock without one, and none of hte 'resupply' missions mentioned had any connection to the context of the discussion. Hence my meant-to-be-humourous reply.

Well, consider that the Galactica was being decommissioned, and half of its flight deck capacity had already been converted to a tourist trap. You can bet your panties that most usable equipment was being shipped off for use elsewhere in the fleet - infact Im amazed that Galactica had a Viper fleet at the end (yeah, I know, there wouldnt be much of a story without it).

I wasn't talking of the state the airlock was in - that's more than plausible with the kind of age and abuse it had. I was talking about the attitude towards a repair of safety-critical gear which had sustained an unknown amount of damage. You're way more cautious with things like that if you're more than a rookie in technical repairs!

It would, of course, have "ruined" part of the storyline - but a better writer would have found a way out of that as well.

The whole on strike one? That one was kind of boring...

No, it was much more than that. I thought it was definitely one of the better recent episodes.

Even under "normal" circumstances questions like creating halfway comparable chances for everyone is difficult enough, all the more so under circumstances like the ones depicted in the series, with military necessities thrown in on top of that.

The danger of a solidified split into a ruling and a serving class was indeed quite plausible in the constellation we've seen so far... and watching our incredibly adaptive multi-purpose villain Baltar slip into the role of social revolutionary was a funny side effect! Big grin

Sure, they took generous liberties in several directions, but preserving internal cohesion takes much more than just a commanding officer bellowing orders. Even in condensed form like that it was still more interesting than the n+1st CGI dogfight against a few cylon raiders. Not that that didn't need to happen as well again sometime down the road...

Speaking of Battlestar . . .

Last Night's episode.

Apparently Starbuck blew up.  Wow!

I didn't see her eject.

Now, several things make me curious . . . her vision of the Cylon taking through her life with her Mom, and then her Mom dying. How? Why? Dream?


I was semi-awake when I watched the ep, so I will go back and watch it again - right now.

Regardless, Gateworld said something big would happen with Starbuck soon . . . . so, apparently, this is it.

Is she blown up?

Is she a Cylon?

Will she be back?

The airlock one was OK...last night's was pretty darn good, but I guess different strokes for different folks...I thought the strike episode was a bit too predictable. It was good to have it out in the open...it shows how things are happening inside and just how bad it's getting...I just did not find it particularly exciting, especially compared to some of the other ones. Oh, and I hate Tyrol's attitude.  Big grin

The kid saying, "But I'm NOT a farmer!" was pretty dang funny.  rotfl

Decent episode... the cocky lawyer was a bit over the top, but not entirely bad. I just hope the trial won't be too chlicheed...

And Major Adama wanting to stick with the Defense.

Damn I wish Lee would pick a side of the fence. Of course, he's only seeing it from Major Adama's side, we - the audience - can see everything. Baltar is convicted already. Should be an interesting last two episodes though.

Any one have ideas on when Season 3 will release on DVD?

With any luck they'll release the whole thing in one package.....

Everybody ready for the season finale? Hopefully they saved the best for last....

I can't imagine they'll do otherwise - release the entire Season 3 package as one set. Since they didn't release a Season 3.0 and a 3.5 ala Season 2. I just wish they'd hurry up about  silly 

Taping Part 1 of the season finale right now. I'm working, so will not get to see it until after shift at 0700 tomorrow.

Once again: Some Spoilers:

I read on either Gateworld or BattlestarWiki that during the Season Finale another "Major Character" will be revealed as a Cylon. Any bets?

Starbuck?

Starbuck is as good a guess as any. it was never revealed exactly what happened to Starbuck at the Farm.

Check.

I finally got to watch the last episode this morning when I got off duty.

Lee Adama (MR, Adama) continues to piss me off. What a panty-waist I've come to think he is. Every time there's a little adversity, he quits playing. Like a three year old taking his ball and going home.

I have a feeling, the season cliff-hanger will end with Baltar NOT being convicted. Now that's gonna start some crap fleetwide.

Alas, I must hope my skills at setting the VCR are properly tuned, and there are no cable or power failures next weekend . . . I'm going to be in LAS . . . and Battlestar will be the last thing on my mind. LOL

Starbuck is as good a guess as any. it was never revealed exactly what happened to Starbuck at the Farm.

Here is the thing about Starbuck that leads to some interesting questions.

In the beginning of the episode in which Starbucks ship explodes and she appears to die the population count of the fleet was 41,400.

The next episode in the beginning Baltar's lawyer is assassinated. The next count however is 41,399.

There appeared to be 2 deaths but only one was counted. So either Statrbuck is a Cylon, or she isn't really dead. Either way something clearly involving Starbuck is going on with the count.

I'm not sure which it is but the producers don't fool with the count at the beginning of the show.
A little less Hooah, and a little more Dooah.
