Re: BSG S2: Flight of the Phoenix

One thing that's always confused me about the two Sharons is how Helo's Sharon has the memories of Tyrol's Sharon and their relationship together.

The two Sharons coexisted simultaneously - one on Galactica and one on Caprica. Tyrol's Sharon evidently didn't die and download at any point before Cally's intervention, so where did Helo's Sharon get those memories from? How does she remember her life on Galactica when she never experienced it?

Is this explained at any point? Did I miss a line of dialogue anywhere?

Re: BSG S2: Fragged

To put it another way:

While it may seem harsh to execute somone for refusing to obey orders, they are not so much executed for refusing to obey, but so that others will not refuse to obey...

Re: BSG S2: Fragged

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I believe Crashdown was well within his rights to point a gun at Cally.

In a war situation, you sometimes have to order soldiers to their certain death in pursuit of a mission objective. Said soldier may not want to go, reasonably, out of fear of their own survival.

Sadly, they still have to go, and the only threat that would work in that situation is the threat of certain death if refused, weighed against almost certain death of complying.

There's a reason why ALL societies that have abolished the death penalty still have an exception for soldiers serving in times of war. Cowardice in the face of the enemy cannot be allowed to stand, unless you want your soldiers refusing to fight.

He had the absolute right to threaten her, and he damn well should have pulled the trigger if she continued to refuse a direct order through cowardice.

Its not nice, or pretty, or noble, but it is mecessary for order. All else is anarchy.

Re: DS9 S5: Trials and Tribble-ations

The reason it was a 'very special' episode is to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of Star Trek itself.
