    BTW, Sci-Fi has been showing the episodes on their website at Noon, EST on Fridays (9:00AM) for us West Coast folks. For those of us who need their fix ASAP, it is welcome relief.

    just thought some of you might like to know.

    Yeah, my assumption has been that the 12 (or their predecessors) were behind the war/rebellion, and that the Centurians have only evolved into sentient beings (as opposed to almost literal cannon fodder) since then. Number One seemed rather surprised and dismayed at their display of independent thought, so I would assume that it is a very recent development.

    Probably sometime between the writer's strike and now.

    The Apollo retirement makes absolutely no sense to me. When only 40,000 humans remain, and the military needs every skilled pilot they can find, why the frak would they let one of the most skilled pilots separate? For frak's sake, weren't they conscripting civilians not too long ago?

    I had audio dropouts on both BSG and the Sarah Jane Adventures which followed. I'm on Time Warner Cable with an S2...

    ... therefore I'm guessing it was a problem on the Sci-Fi end itself?

    And I laughed out loud at My Giddy-Od!

    Why not just do a jump or two in the opposite direction without telling Starbuck and see if she reacts positively to it? Heck, why not at least discuss the idea of doing that, even if you decide if she were a cylon she'd know the direction you're going?

    There's just no intelligent thought left on this show.

    At least it's got real purty special effects in HD. Now we just need some naked-Jamie-Bamber scenes.

    What would that prove? It could be a positive reaction, but for something other than the "Earth compass". Seems unnecessary to waste time on that discussion.

    If she said nothing and didn't change her crying about getting further away, it could confirm a lie she's been giving. Perhaps it wouldn't be 100% proof of truthfulness if she noticed the "earth signal" suddenly getting stronger, but it might've been better motivation to put a ship together for her to take to explore, too.

    I just mean that she might be a Cylon plant and her "signal" is real (and she thinks it's leading to Earth), but it doesn't lead to Earth. It wouldn't help to do what you suggested in that case.

    One thing though, I think Adama DID a check, sort of, of this kind. He ordered the jump, and then went over to her cell, and saw her pretty much knocked out. I think that's what finally convinced him to send her on the recon mission.

    I'm surprised most of you liked this ep...I thought it absolutely stank...the dialog was forced and third-rate...can't put my finger on it but it was like the writer was trying too hard to make a grand "opera" about every little point...

    Kara's hysterics were too much...none of the characters spoke or acted like "real people" or even like they normally do...

    the only saving grace was the cylon portion of the show (the 7, not the idiot 4)...

    I guess (to go into apologist mode) you could say it would be too expensive--the entire fleet would have to jump (since she's on Galactica and they're not going to risk both leaving the fleet unprotected and possibly losing the fleet again), and they've had fuel limitations in the past...

    On the list of dumb things they're doing, this barely ranks. My question is why didn't they just officially do what they're basically doing now...give her a guard and a Raptor and send her off in search of Earth? And why are they doing it on the sly...it would seem that releasing a possible Cylon spy and giving her an entire ship is the kind of move that could really blow up in their faces if it got out. I assume there's some story reason requiring her to have a full-blown spaceship next week that is so cool, it justifies (in their minds) doing weird senseless stuff to get there.

    It's all about the drama. Common sense and any congisance or respect for what was said and done in previous episodes is verboten.

    Think of it this way, the last remnants of humanity locked in a series of vicious space battles with only the Viper pilots between them and slaughter. What's more important, a highly skilled pilot or a lawyer? :thumbsdown:
