Imo Valkyrie looked way smaller than galactica or peggy.

- Baltar 3 some... Way to go Gaius. If you can't beat 'em frak 'em! He's almost like humanities' secret weapon by injecting the worst of human insecurities/neurousies into the Cylon conciousness.
 


I dunno, but he's one lucky bastard.

I'm glad they kept Bulldog around though, allows for a possible battle scene later such as: Bulldog flying again, gets shot down ejects, bigass battle against I dunno, 2 or 3 basestars. Wise thing to do would to get the hell outta there, but Adama doesn't want to leave him behind again, so they "frakup" the 2-3 base stars to save Bulldogs ass.

I'm also glad Tai (sp?) is back though.

And one other thing... 2 weeks till the next episode? Lame.

Looks like the Centurions would have a hard-wired "fail-safe" in their mechanical design that would keep them from fragging a skin-job in the first place.


Given that the Centurion did blow her away I think we can conclude that they don't :D

Besides they might not have done that for some reason to do with the 5 other models.

:( :( :(

WHY???!!! Why 2 weeks? Where do you guys get your info?

Well we can only hope that there won't be a 9 month delay till Season 3.5, like the brake that way between Season 2 and 3 (I remember lurking around back then, seeing your post on the subject. I broke my heart too).

the trailer for the next episode said 2 weeks, so we have a bit of a wait. and yeah the valkyrie looked smaller then both to me, but we had nothing to compare its size to so who knows.

and skippy.. i think its safe to say they have a grudge against adama, he's kept the fleet alive... saved them from new caprica, he's really been a thorn in the cylon's side, a large speedbump in their plan to wipe out humanity

and scorpio... yeah its nice tigh is back.... but even if something happened to bulldog... we still dont know if galactica is capable of frakking up 2 or 3 baseships after the NC incident.

It's two weeks because they've got a sci-fi movie marathon going next week for Thanksgiving.

my ideas:
The Valk seems to be a bit more Mercury-esque, but still retains some elements of the Galactica series of ships. It also seems smaller and looks sleaker and faster than the Peggy or Galactica. Perhaps it's like a battlecruiser, designed for strike missions. It agree that it looks less complex, so maybe it was mass produced and there were ALOT of them.

the ship does seem to be more ship assault drivin, its extremely large, probably had many more guns. flight pods didnt seem to be as long. anyone else noticing TOS parts of the design, the head was very TOS and so are the entrances of the flight pods.

I'm embaressed that nobody else seems to have noticed they used a new Raider mockup. Only one pair of guns on this one, boxier.

Instead of their crappy movies, they should have had a BSG marathon for at least 1 day...
 
Of course, they may have been told to have more "PC" content for the "holidays".

There's something messed up in Three's dream sequence. She seems to be in the same opera house that Baltar and Six were in during the Season 1 finale. There are verticle pillars of light rising up. However, in several shots it looks like there are white glowing humanoid figures between the pillars. They vanish in a couple of shots. Then it looks like Three reaches out to touch one of them with an expression of delight, then it starts to change of one of horror and she wakes up.

Is this the bit where RDM brings in the Ships and Beings of Light from the original series? Were those the Lords of Kobol?

Freaky.

"God may be not your God, your God may vary?"

To quote Axem.

EDIT: You know, this epsiode also gives the great "What If?" of BSG a basis in fact: What if the second Cylon War kicked off without the Cylons having the CNP compromised? It could have happened, it seems.

It's an interesting possibility. The colonials would have been less vulnerable, certainly, but I think the Cylons would still have been able to break into their systems pretty quickly. That's the kind of thing they're good at. Rather than just flipping a switch and turning off the entire fleet, I guess we would have seen them use viruses to infiltrate the computers, like we saw them do to Galactica in season 2.

without the cnp program to backdoor their way in, there would have been a LOT more cylon losses, obviously they took hardly any in the initial attacks, and if they hadnt been able to shut down the ships like they did, the battle clearly would have been a lot worse.. and not just a massacre
