Re: TNG S6: Suspicions

Just one point I'd like to make regarding the Ferengi that I recall is that they didn't develop spaceflight. They bought it. Can't remember off who but it was mentioned in an episode of DS9.

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2

With regards to the abandonment of technology etc. I think it makes sense (although could have been fleshed about a bit more in dialogue). As Evan said, they were pretty much out of supplies already (living on algae for gods knows how long)and everything was breaking apart. Without the established industry and skills to rebuild essential items. All that would have happened is people would have began infighting over what little remained (as fore-shadowed in *sigh* deadlocked). It was ultimately the right choice.

Otherwise this was in my opinion a majestic end to the show, and the emotional credibility of the script/acting overpowered any minor issues.

Considering other issues; the opera house section was technically marvelous. While its literal existence was not all that it had been hyped to be (perhaps Athena and Helo's deaths would have emphasised this), I think it stood more as the point of Baltar's final conversion, that, more than anything, his visions were coming true. This obviously propelled him to talk Cavill down, and allow the humans and cylons to make (albeit breif) peace, showing they were 'worthy of survival.

Finally I also like Kara vanishing, as far as I'm concerned she died in Maelstrom and returned as an 'angel' to help them complete the jounrey, although such completion had to be earned. That does however emphasise just how much god must have hated the mutineers she killed in Oath/BOTS, imagine being shot by an angel.

Finally just a note of thanks to Jammer for his continued, in depth, commentary which has far exceeded the work of most critics out there.

Cheers,

p.s. constellation matching: Maybe Kara's jump coordinates caused the ship to move through time as well as space and it was in fact the same planet and in fact they were re-starting the cycle about 160,000 years earlier? A joke, but who knows?
