Tmp2 / Laura Roslin twin?

They may look the same, but I think that's where the comparison comes to an abrupt halt. :no:

They said season 4 would be the last one, but what if they do Season 4.75?

Don't give Sci-fi any ideas...

"Hm, how can we upset the fans even further? Oo, oo, lets split up the final half of season 4! Yeah, that'll help our ratings!"

I'd always been curious to see that Viper drawing, since I learned that the Mark VII was modified from a piece of SDS concept art. You can definitely see the family resemblance. Might be a candidate for a Viper Mark VI, if anyone had a mind to fill in some blanks in the lineage.

You're right, there is a pretty clear family resemblance, especially with the engine assembly. I don't think it's a bad looking Viper, even if the "escape pod" concept is utterly retarded. :p

Tmp2 / Caprica details

Yay for placing judgment based on a loose outline and a few pictures taken from the set!

Hm, let me just take a look at this book over here...well frak, that cover looks awful! I know that cover isn't representational of the content of the book at all, but they used wierd colors and it's not what I imagined a cover should look like, so this book must be HORRIBLE! It especially doesn't matter to me that the author of this HORRIBLE book is the same author of that other book I love so much! He must be spawned from the devil, it's the only answer.


Tmp2 / A historic day: the last day of regular filming on BSG

I dunno, to me it sounds like the pessimists in this thread are sounding a lot like Lepton. :p

As my quote said, "action" can be anything a character does with an objective behind it. The plot of the pilot episode...
[spoiler]...revolves around one man trying to bring his dead daughter back in robotic form...[/spoiler]...that's action. It does not have to explode for it to be action; that is a pedantic way to view things. But I guess some people might be ready to discount the show before it's even aired because of their predisposed notions of it being a "soap."

EDIT: Spoilered something just in case.

I dont like to characterize it as a soap just because it brings up very negative connotations. I label it as a drama because really, it has the elements: conflicts between characters, tragic characters, a meddling with religion.

EDIT: From Wikipedia, to support my claim

In theater, the two main things to consider are: a) drama is driven by conflict and b) that drama is action. Action can be loosely defined as anything a character does with an objective behind it, whereas conflict can be briefly summarized as a clash between the motives of one or more characters.

Sounds like Caprica to me...

They might not dismantel everything considering the Caprica series might include sets of the battlestar.

It's hearsay, but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Caprica is going to be based almost entirely on, well, Caprica. It's going to be a sci-fi drama, not a space opera like BSG. Sad, I know, but at least we can expect the same level of depth and originality to the storyline that we got from BSG.

I saw some of these in person at a store, and couldn't believe how badly the faces were done. Was like, "That's not Apollo! wtf!"

i think the show did well by having those characters stay, it generally helps with viewing, and you dont think "Why are there 10,000 pilots so far..."

Agreed. It's the opposite of Red Shirt Syndrome; suddenly, there are no bit-role characters, and the audience has an emotional connection to every character.

I knew about this. Gotta say, wish my dad could get me a job on a hit TV show! Kinda interesting how BSG ended up turning bit-role characters into something bigger. Like, Hotdog was probably supposed to be a character that showed up a couple times, so Edie got his son the part. And then, lo and behold, the character takes on a life of its own, and now Hotdog even has his own action figure!

As there's two threads about Ep. 12, I'm confused about which one to post in...but I guess this one will do.

As cliffhangers go, this one felt the least painful. Obviously there's the usual "what the frak?" feeling, but I don't quite feel like I'll need to rip my hair out from now until 2009.

Amazing acting from Eddie...was so painful seeing Adama reduced to a worthless, sobbing wreck like that, and that's one of the things I love about the series.

So, the big questions...what the frak happened to Earth? What the frak are they gonna do now? Who the frak is the 5th cylon? And lastly...

Why the frak haven't Saul 'One Eye'd Toaster' Tigh and Felix 'Stumpy' Gaeta formed their pirate gang yet?

I felt Pike's deathbed multijump could have been given more importance... they should have had him carrying some vital information or something, and kept flashing back to him as he struggled to execute jump after jump to get back to Galactica, but ultimately dies on the last jump. They could have made him a tragic hero.

Instead, he became a landmark for the story...

Another way to look at it, however, is that Pike died a very realistic death. He wasn't anything special, he didn't do anything special...he was dying, was scared, and tried to go home, but couldn't quite make it. Pretty human reaction, if you ask me. Also, if they'd made a story out of him, it would have meant some other part of the episode would have had to have been chopped for time.

One other place where it didn't gel with Sine Non Qua was in the timing of the battle and the rebel basestar jumping away.

If they had said something more explicit about "Damage to the basestar's FTL brain" or something(aside from Elosha's comment about limping back home), I would have bought how long it took to get back. As it was, a bunch of Raptors from Galactica had time to make at least 2 round trips to the battle site.

I'd expect that the rebel basestar made a big jump in the wrong direction in order to throw off pursuit from the other Cylon faction; the rebels didn't claim the field of battle, they took out the hub and then made a run for it. If they'd gone straight to the rally point, they'd probably also get pounced on by the other Cylon fleet.

Quote from: Destructor!!!;102221

What's more, in Sine Non Qua, there were a good many intact, but empty vipers... Sandman's, for example. What happened there?


Quote from: Destructor!!!;102221

And does it seem a little fishy to anyone else that the Cylons would have such an incredibly strategic target left so-unguarded as to be vulnerable from attack and destruction at the hands of one heavily-damaged Basestar?! A basestar without it's full complement of fighters!

First of all, the other Cylon faction never even imagined that the rebels would be so rash as to destroy the hub, as it make them all mortal. And there's no way the Colonials could have found the hub on their own, as the thing jumps around randomly. So essentially, it didn't need defense. In any event, the other Cylon fleet was there when the Rebels attacked. The Rebels just went right for the jugular. And the hub probably wasn't armored in the least, AND it got smacked by nukes. How are you supposed to defend that?

Quote from: WMCoolmon;102267
Athena spent a year in a cage and went to New Caprica in order to gain what freedom she has now. I don't find it all that surprising that she didn't put up a struggle. She's technically part of the military too, so she falls under Roslin's jurisdiction. Pulling a gun on Helo wouldn't serve any useful purpose. The humans would never trust her, it could lead to the Cylons deserting or imprisoning all the humans onboard or launched from the ship, and she wouldn't be trusted by either side. She'd effectively be a triple agent, and the Rebels have already been burned by one traitorous Eight.

I think you may be confused. The Eight that confronted Helo is NOT Athena; at that moment, Athena is back on Galactica cooling her heels in the brig. The Eight that interacts with Helo is just another Eight, but one that had tapped into Athena's memories at some point and so had understanding.
