I still prefer to believe that it was time travel.

1. The Temple of Apollo showed constellations that are only visible from our earth. That meant either the burned out "earth" they found the first time a) wasn't actually earth but a cylon colony because they missed the target, or b) was our earth but in their time.

2. Lends a lot of credence to the whole "this has happened before" thing.

3. They jumped next to a black hole. Some scientific theories think that black holes and wormholes are the key to time travel.

If the goal was to stop the cycle, then having Cavil make a pact and stick with it would have stopped the violence and nobody would have needed to jump the ship back to earth.

But, I like the bleakness of that thought too. They can't break the cycle because it has all happened before. They all have prescribe roles that they must play, and Hera "Is the mother of us all".

We never did find out where the settlers of Kobol came from, maybe they came from earth initially? It was heavily mentioned that the odds of finding a compatible species are astronomical. Maybe they weren't another species of human, but the ancestors of the same humans.


Or, I could think happy thoughts and go with the whole "God had a plan and the cycle might be broken and look at what a nice promised land God has found for us".

The way they wrote the show really leaves a lot up to interpretation, and really makes you think about all of the events of the show. Even if it's only in effort to try to make the darn thing make sense!

I came late to the BSG show. We just started watching last month. It was awesome to zip through all the episodes. I found a great site online that discusses all the episodes in great detail. Battlestar Wiki. After each ep I would read the summary which had notes and analyses and information that filled in a ton of details.

Galen ended up in Scotland according to the series creator guy.

Here is a link to the analysis of the finale if you're interested.

I loved the whole series and the finale.

Cavill did indeed say Frak before shooting himself. And it was Dean Stockwell's idea that he commit suicide.

Thanks for posting this! I'm glad to see some of my theories supported by RM!

She stayed on "Erf" remember? She said she just couldn't go on after finding the nuked planet. So she stayed. I wish she would have hung in there to make it to Earth.

Damn you! Damn you for this! How am I EVER going to get anything done around this house if I now have to read each analysis for every single episode?

I'm a hopeless addict with no will power, and people like you are the equivalent of a dealer--just showing me a new high.

(By the way, have you listened to any/all the podcasts on www.galacticawatercooler.com? They're pretty funny.)

Oh, man, I know! I went on the Wiki sight and spend a half hour just reading stuff from PART of the finale.

I'm pretty bummed it's over, but now I must find a new fave TV show. I've loved BSG, Buffy, X-files... I watch a few other things, but those have been my faves.

Any suggestions for a new TV obsession?

How about Caprica, the new show to be set in the pre-Battlestar Galactica homeworld?

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.

I just watched the Caprica pilot last night. I now know why they won't be showing it on the sci-fi channel. I think the ratings people would have had a stroke. It was really interesting though.

No, it's not going to air on any network. It is availabe only on DVD, which went on sale this week. Strange way to air a pilot.

Or smart. Make a pilot. Sell it to BSG addicts. Look at the numbers from sales and reviews. Axe the project before you spend hundreds of thousands on making more shows or continue with production.
