Tmp2 / Season 4 Ep 5 Discussion *Spoilers*

Kara's dad is the Fifth and Final Cylon, so she's half-Cylon, and perhaps can download, too. They used her DNA to make a new Cylon body in her image, and took her for a ride to Earth. See? It all fits.:biggrin1:

But wouldn't that make her dad older than even the very earliest models of Cylon?

Quote from: Asraniel;97244

The cylons will get their free will in the next episodes. The humans and cylons will eventualy make peace, and create a new species. (ok, i was fast on that part). And then, settle down on a planet and life there a long time. With time, the history will be lost, after thousands of years, nobody knows that they are infact cylon/human hybrids, create "new" cylons, and everything starts from the beginning.

When keeping that in mind, everything makes sense. The humans won't die, but only a few are left. The cylons won't die either, they have evolved too far, they are nearly humans. Multiple cylons are in peace with the humans, the others will follow, or declared obsolete models. In the model numbering you see the patern that, the higher the number, the more human like they are. The only logical outcome is that humans and cylons will become one species (and we have seen that creating a child is possible).

Perhaps it's less straightforward than that: we know humanity left Kobol because of some hitherto-unknown 'calamity,' or clash with the gods, whoever or whatever they may be. Perhaps the human/cylon conflict is simply a repetition of the human/god conflict archetype, with the process of the exodus and the events involved being repeated.

Between Lee's conversation with Big Adama in 'He That Believeth..' and the identity of four of the final five (especially Tigh) being what they are, I think the assertion that humanity and the Cylons will make peace at some point is a given. And, I suppose, by extension, they may become one unified people somewhere down the line as well, but whether or not that all will come to fruition before the end of season 4, I'm less sure about.

Angriefer has a point with the relativity of time.  All I have to say is that I trust RDM and his crew to answer the questions and that the part where
[spoiler]Tigh shot Admiral Adama in the head[/spoiler] was awesome.  Even though I knew it was probably a fake-out, I was still entirely emotionally involved.

I am not ashamed to say that I completely lost it for a moment there.

Tmp2 / Squadron patches

For them to work in-game the color has to be set to 'Indexed' as opposed to 'RGB Color.' Also, (and this one I could be wrong about) I'm pretty sure any non-pure green pixel shows up, i.e. the edge of the patch has to be a hard one where it meets the green field, or you get a funny border around it in-game.

The patches are awesome, though, especially the 'cloth' versions.

If one were looking for all of Space: Above and Beyond one might theoretically try, where there just might -- again, I stress 'in theory' -- be a channel with all 24 episodes available to watch.

Makes the most sense for Raiders -- like that shot in the miniseries where they all fire a salvo at once and destroy the squadron of Vipers.

Tmp2 / problems joining multiplayer games with a router

Unfortunately I'm on a Mac, so I don't have all the options of a launcher.

Tmp2 / problems joining multiplayer games with a router
« on: August 23, 2007, 10:34:36 PM »
My brother and I were both trying to join a multiplayer game today, but when one of us was in the game the other couldn't join and got the message that an identical player was already in the game. I assume it's because we're behind the same router, but I can't think of a way to fix it. Any ideas?
