1) The constellation Orion appears in this episode. It is clearly visible in the background of the basestars shortly before Cavil's ships begin to attack, and may be visible when Cally looks out the window in the launch tube shortly before she is confronted by Foster.

This would indicate that both fleets are relatively close to Earth. However, for them to see Orion in the same two-dimensional configuration as from Earth, they would have to be within a few light years of Sol and in a relatively narrow corridor between it an Orion.


very interesting

Please, to all those whining about Cally's death, I know she is many's favorite character (I'd be miffed if they spaced Admiral Adama), but you cant be offended at a character death; it's part of the show, there have to be consequences, or it’s just another scifi show, plus it's the last season. Be greatful you even had Cally, remember she was just a miniseries character and got a bigger role.


I'm not offended, I'm just upset and pissed off at Tori. I am a little niffed my expectation of more stuff with Cally this season won't be fulfilled, but I'm fairly confident this'll turn out to be worth it.

no he's not. He's just a frakkin' insane, selfish motherfrakker. He might be trying to be better (and it's doubtful, since he's probably just trying to save himself), but that doesn't negate all the %&*@ he's done.


Respectfully, I disagree. Remember, in "He That Believeth in Me" he was more concerned about the life a woman he barely knew than his own. The old Baltair never would have begged for her life instead of his. You're right when you say it doesn't negate what he's done, but he is on the road to redemption.

Also, please do not use foul language in your posts. [/Moderator]

We don’t like Gaeta now? And what the hell was up with him wearing a pilot’s mess uniform while on the Demetrius?


Well, that comment was IMO. I'm sure other people find others characters likable. As far as Gaeta goes, I don't dislike him, I just think he's a little dull.

2) Once again no one notices the use of a launch tube. It is hard to believe that such a critical system is not monitored, especially at night when the hangar deck is deserted.


I'm guessing that has something to do with the lack of networked computers.

The human drama makes this show great. I guess I just come from not having or wanting kids. Besides that fact it seemed to me every time you saw that kid he was crying and loud too. To me it was almost drowning out everything around. I know kids don't cry THAT much.


Well, some kids cry that much, when they're upset, wether physically, or emotionally. And poor Nicky Tyrol is not in the best of environments. I'm surprised there hasn't been an episode on child abuse yet....

This country has been a mess since Bush's 2nd term and January can't come soon enough for a change.


I know we don't agree on many things Zipper, but this one is not one of them. Out with Bush, please.

Thanks for pointing stuff out MaGnUs! Insightful as usual.


Thanks man, I try. :>

Of course you're entitled to disagree, that's what makes it fun. I still thjink that Baltar begging for another's life to be spared and his to be taken was more about the latter than about the former. He wants his tribulations to end, he wants the easy way out. He has a a bit of a death wish.

Sorry, I'll try to avoid it.

That's a good point, but still, there should be someone on duty physically monitoring it; and it's been shown that they can see from the CIC when stuff launches and so on....

The episode Black Market touched on child abuse in terms of selling children into slavery and sex acts.

I would be worried if everyone here agreed with me. I encourage people to disagree and form their own opinions.

Maybe a human body is too small for the senors to detect?

Maybe the launch indicators are keyed to the mechanism that fires the vipers and not the hatch opening? I don't know.

Yes, that came to mind, but I was more talking about the pressures people in the fleet live under, and the fact that that might push some to beating up their kids.

I mean, I live a relatively normal life, with my needs covered, but sometimes my son mishbehaves so much, that I feel like smacking him... even though I can control myself. Just imagine someone living in the Fleet.

Like taking out the stress out on your children.

Nice eagle-eye with Orion. It would also mean that if a straight line were drawn between Sol and Orion, the fleet would be practically on that line.
Another question with the launch tube, is where is the current hanger deck leader? Tyrol says in season one that on his shift, he walks the perimeter of the deck to make sure all hatches are shut etc. This is not done now, and not when The Circle exectued their criminals.

Plus, wouldn't anyone else in any other ship see a body air-locked?
