Tmp2 / BSG 419 - Daybreak, Part I

With the singularity I fear a giant time loop coming. "All this has happened before and will happen again."

Galactica get the crap blown out of it. In desperation Anders Jump's Galactica while too close to the singularity, causing Galactica and the survivors to go back in time. They crash on Earth, and the cycle begins again.

If anyone seen that "Year of Hell" eppie of ST:  Voyager, I surmise the Big G would go down that same path?

Well there was that scene with Hera playing on the tactical planning board have Galactica ramming a cylon baseship.

I do not recall seeing those cargo/transport craft that we shown flying down to earth before. Could those be the elusive tanker birds craft referenced in exodus?  The protrusions look a lot like fuel booms.

Well this episode showed me why the seven cylon models were instructed to never look for the final five.

Basically the final 5 went "native" and forgot they were cylon. There is a strong implication in the show that each model basically thinks alike, so if one went off the cliff, it is possible for the entire line to go off the cliff. That is why they boxed the 3's.

My guess is when the final five went native, it sent the cylon civilization into chaos with all except for the "final five versions" of the five rogue models remaining with the humans and all the other versions were destroyed or "boxed". ( I would go so far to say that the final five going native is what caused the end of the first human=cylon war. It's a bit hazy on when the skin jobs were first created.)  

The great flaw in the final five programing, was that they believed that there were human - thus subject to true death, no downloads.  The problem, is that such a belief would mark the end of a cylons as they had no way to procreate. (hence the importance of Hera.)

The current situation is a reflection of that fear. The rebel cylons now want to have "true deaths" and are willing to destroy all the other cylon's ability to down-load. Doing so would mark the end of the cylon civilization, as the civil war has wiped out virtually all of the female models.

Edit: The rest of the characters know what it means, or at least more or less, ts just one of the things that Adma says that makes a unique character[/QUOTE]

From Valley of Darkness

Apollo: Let's go, let's go, let's go! Steady up there, Jammer.
Jammer: Yes, sir. I'm not really cut out for this, sir.
Apollo: Me neither. Sometimes you got to roll a hard six.
Jammer: Wh-what does that mean, sir?
Apollo: Uh... I don't know. It's something my dad says. Just...don't shoot until I tell ya to. All right. Okay, we're in good shape. They're coming. But we're in good shape. Head shot. Reload. Head shot. Head shot. Reload.  Head shot. Reload. Head shot. Okay, they're coming. Everybody down!

Given the numbers we do know it could easily go 1, 2-8 (The seven known models), 9-12 (known Final Five).

Which would be a very interesting numbering pattern indeed.

The final five numbers have to equal 6 in some way. Why else would Adama keep saying "roll a hard six" . Sure you could say it refers to "craps" but no one on the show seems to know what it means....

Noodle - When you speak of armor and modern weapons, you have no idea what you are talking about. The USS Cole is a warship, but modern US warships are basically unarmored.

One of the reasons we brought back the USS New Jersey was that WWII battleships are basically invulnerable to modern non-nuclear weapons.

Excellent work. My only thoughts from a visual perspective is that the star field was too dense. The other is a smoke trails of the weapons were too similar.  The whitish smoke is great for missiles, but does not do it for me with battlestar weapons.

At the distance of the perspective - I doubt that you could see the lights. Any have access to the Galileo images of earth from say 500K miles?

My pet theory - The humans of earth discover Kobol as a habitual plannet. There is some sort of planet wide danger approching earth. (I vote for a the discovery of a near by star going Nova or rogue planet approaching the solar system.) Humanity in desperation create a exodus fleet. Realizing that trip to Kobol would be an extremely long voyage, humanity creates Cylons to man the ships while the human masters were in hibernation.

Once on Kobol, the humans and cylons live together.  A war breaks out, when the cylons turn on their human masters, resulting in the "true" humans fleeing to Earth and the cylons flee to the colonies. These cylons in turn creates the "new cylons".  Who in turn, turn on their "human" masters and the "true humans" end up fleeing to earth.

I was just looking at some 3D solar pictures and thought - it would be cool to have a dogfight in a solar corona field.  I doubt that freespace could handle it, but it would make a interesting battlefield.

Overall, season three has been a disappointment to me. Yes, Exodus 2 - A great episode but it was badly edited.   A lot of drama was defused by showing scenes out of sequence.

My issue with season three is not the filler episodes, but rather it was the Cylon story lines. A drama is oft defined by the quality of the enemy. In Galactica there are two enemies one the Cylon's - which were reduced to a squabbling band head cases without a leader.  The whole religion thing, was way overdone.The second is the humans themselves, but that was neutered by the lack of consequences for their actions.

Ok its a filler episode - but a good one. Unlike last weeks which went into the circle file - this episode had heart, some drama, and bit of humor.

As for Galactica- just six weeks in drydock and can of touch up paint and she will be as good as new. Me thinks the writers have written themselves into a corner. I see a 13th tribe abandoned space station in the future or a captured battlestar to be salvaged.

I think this episode would of been much better if they dropped the Zarek scene and put the Adama Helo "bonus" scene at the beginning.  It would of put a context on why Adama came down so hard on Helo.

A better political scene would of been Roslin & Zarek wrestling with where to put the refugees stuck on Galatica. Have  Zarek be in charge of settling the refugee's and Helo made liaison to keep Zarek & Adama out of direct conflict. This would context to the broader cultural conflicts in the fleet, rehabilitate Helo and keep the plot going.

Ugg .... what a poor episode. It neither advances the existing plot threads nor i is it interesting as a stand alone episode. It does however point out that the Galactica fighter capability is much higher then advertised, as either the port pod is holding both the Galactica & Peggy's fighter wings or these hangar decks are really really big.
