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

One blatant mistake in the finale that's been bugging me is the lack of consistency re: jumping causing damage to nearby objects.

Raptors rip stuff up when they jump nearby. This is established. So what should we expect to happen to nearby object when GALACTICA jumps?

Galactica was *embedded* in the Cylon colony when it jumped away. The colony wasn't so much as tickled by it. What the hell?

And wouldn't that be a better way to have the colony be destroyed, than randomly having a raptor's missiles misfire (and somehow have enough power to take out the entire colony, which is what, a couple of dozen times the size of a battlestar)?

Anyone else share these thoughts?

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

I agree with most of everyone here about the unexplained bits in the finale ("Harbinger of Death"...wha?), but I disagree that having Cavil shoot himself was a negative thing.

Frankly, I thought it was hillarious. Just, "FRACK" -> shoots self in mouth. Is it explained why he did it? Not really, but part of the humor was its unexpectedness. And I do find it to be in-character: Cavil saw that everything had just completely gone to hell, and he was "machine enough" to realize it and act accodingly. He knew he was probably going to be killed anyway, after all.
