Apparently, if you'd paid attention to the actual science of BSG - specifically blood types and machine diseases—you'd have been able to piece together that humans and Cylons would get it on, interspecies style.

At the New York Comic Con's Science of Battlestar Galactica panel—centered around Patrick Di Justo's book of the same title—Di Justo revealed that the show itself gave two very large hints that, in the end, humans and Cylons would become one species.

In the second-season episode "Epiphanies," Helo and Sharon's unborn daughter, Hera, is examined by Doc Cottle, who explains that the hybrid fetus has no blood type—and that, apparently, is strange news to the Colonial survivors. But 40 percent of humanity today has no blood type—Type O—which means that, somehow, that particular Cylon-specific trait got introduced into humans.

And in the third-season episode "A Measure of Salvation," the Cylons come down with a mysterious disease—lymphocytic encephalitis—which is deadly to the machines but to which the show's humans are immune. Now, lymphocytic encephalitis is an actual disease—one primarily carried by rodents—and humans are most definitely not immune to. So how did humanity lose their immunity? Centuries of breeding.

It's always cool when a science fiction show gives you some actual science to chew on. Gods, I miss BSG sooooo much; Caprica does NOT fill the void (at all). :cylonnono:

Maybe it was a... (wait for it).... typ-o? Get it? Typo? Type-O? :lol: :blink: :blush:

Oh well, that one just kills on the basestar.


But the post was essentially correct; type O blood contains no inherent antigens (unlike all A/B combinations). One can assume that Colonials all had some variation of A/B blood types, and that the 'skinjobs' introduced the concept of O blood to humanity's genetic mix (how it cured Roslin's cancer, I have no idea).
Wiki/blood types

Wikipedia; when looking up the real answer is just too much work! :lol:

The answer to the last question first; a bunch. :P

The answer to the first question last; unless the antimatter was an exact counterpart to the 'normal matter' antigen? Probably nothing. :lol:

Looks like it. Type "O" blood is actually usually (in probably more than 99 percent of cases) misprinted. It should be type zero (0) because it contains no antigens of a specific type, not type oh (O). But what can you do when even doctors and medical labs make the same mistake?

Isn't having Type-0 actually having a blood Type regardless of the makeup of it? If they don't have a blood Type then why do they say it is Type-0? I'm just saying..
