Re: TOS S1: Charlie X

When Kirk and Charlie were on the turbolift on the way to the bridge, did they stop off at Kirk's quarters so he could change his shirt?

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

I'll accept the ending RDM gave us using God and angels to answer the questions brought up through the years. I don't LIKE a lot of it, but I'll accept it. However, I doubt I would have tolerated a whole season of the mysticism you propose.

EJO is on record threatening to walk the moment aliens appeared in the story, and IMHO your "Ship of Light" and "higher beings" are perilously close. I probably would have walked at that point. That is just not the ride I signed on for back at the miniseries. I definitely would not be looking to make ties to those aspects of the mythology of the TV series.

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

Azdgari and Niall,

I had the same thought about the Raptors jumping from within Galactica's flight pod, so I went back and watched that sequence again. The jumps took place from the starboard pod that had been converted to a museum, not the port pod used for normal flight operations. It certainly looked to me like the jumps blew the side out of the pod, and did cause significant damage, thus the reason for using the inactive museum pod for the jumps.

We can analyze and nitpick the final ep to death but I think I am about done. I'll look forward to Jammer's review but I'm content to let it rest now. There were things I liked, things I thought were handled poorly and things (like the RDM cameo) that absolutely shouldn't have been there. One thing I will say.... on subsequent re-watching of the series in the future, I will pay more attention when Head Six starts nattering to Gaius about "God's plan".

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

Jerry...

I have to disagree. Strongly.

I have my S3 disc loaded, episode "Crossroads Part 2", and I am looking at a freeze-frame right after the zoom-out from Lee and Kara's Vipers to the zoom-in of Earth. It is our Earth. I am looking at the North American continent. I see the Florida Peninsula, Baja California, Chesapeake Bay, Cuba, Yucatan Peninsula. I see the Great Lakes. I see the frakkin MISSISSIPPI RIVER! There is no question about it. Am I to believe that this is NOT the planet that Kara led the fleet to, where the locator beacon in her crashed Viper was?

This makes no sense.

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 1

Aaron,

They are pronounced the same, but "SyFy" is spelled in such a way that the identifier can be trademarked. It's a marketing thing, not unlike the made-up words used as car model names. It makes no sense to us normal human beings, but there you go.
