cant a raptor use its ftl drive to exit a planets gravitational field? obviously galactica can :D
I don't think so. That was before all the hoohah with Sharon went down. It was also before the Cylon heavy raider was captured, and it's advanced ftl drive was stripped.

In the Mini Series, FTL jumps were a big deal. Colonial tech had to compensate heavily when there were gravity wells present. Plus, I don't think that jumping out of an atmosphere was something they thought of. In addition to that, even if Boomer thought of it, I bet her hidden protocols tucked that thought away. This would make sense, since Helo was to be part of the Cylon experiment.

This is all hindsight conjecture, of course.

well the RTF was making planetside jumps in exo deuce. Id imagine a raptor being a sophisticated electronics bird could managne the same feet

True, however that was after all the jumps the fleet has done up to that point. Experience, and all that.
Plus, that was a 'do or die' moment. It was either jump out of the atmo, or face the Basestars in orbit.

I doubt they had intel on what was going on with the Galactica and the Pegasus, especially since the Pegasus wasn't part of the plan.

actually it was stated in extended Pegasus that the colonial's jump abilities in thier home system "within the red line" were much better then out in the sticks.  They had pretty much mapped out the twelve colonies FTL coordinate wise.

Hmm. Then I would only assume that Boomer's hidden protocols hid that bit of information solely to ensure that Baltar would escape, and Helo would be trapped.

I don't buy that. Helo wasn't meant to stay on Caprica. I doubt they knew that Helo would sacrifice himself for Baltar.

More likely that was a chance event that the Cylons improvised around.

"They had a plan" probably fits the best, seems ever since Downloaded the leadership has been rather incompetent.  "TP is the answer to quelling the Resistence! If only they could wipe thier butts they would noyt be suicide bombing"

LOL!

They really don't seem to have their shit together as of late, do they?

Frakking Skin-Jobs. You need a Centurion to get things done!

Great thing about Centurions is you know where you stand, they're not going to frak you, they're not going to preach to you about god and whatnot, they're just going to shoot you...Bam!
Why Yes, I have looked up my Nickname and I know what it means..I\'m just hoping you don\'t..

No doubt... They're an efficient lot as well. Just a Heavy Raider full were almost enough to do the Galactica.

I have an idea for a potential sub-plot that might arise: treachery by the Pegasus crew.

They obviously considered their ship superior to Galactica, never really had the same liking for the old man, and even considered civilians to be sacrificial at one point. Sure, some of them may have changed their minds, but I reckon there'd have to be a few who are mighty unhappy with Lee crashing their ship to save his dad. I'm surprised there wasn't a mutiny... or maybe there was? He was a little late to the party - maybe he got held up. [/speculation]
