    ...while I waited for the reassurance and final understanding from the members, all that came were accusations thrown at me like knifes being thrown at an innocent bunny hopping and hoping to live another day without being someone's meal.

    Yes, then they could relive the glory days of BattleStar Galacticca 1980!

    But seriously, having a fleet of humans being chased by cylons arive in earth orbit certainly has possibilities.

    Just imagine the religious and scientific implications of these people claiming earth is merely a lost 13th colony. That we did not evolve here.

    We would see a period of technological advancement, particularly in weaponry, not seen since WW2 as we geared up for an impending cylon attack.

    There would be chaos, upheaval, and rapid advancement as we ramped up our economy to a real war footing and absorbed BSG tech.

    What year would it be on Earth?

    Makes me think they're going to discover a contemporary - ie 2007-era - Earth, take one look at the state of affairs here, realize they can never risk exposing our already nutty world to the "truth about humanity", let alone that a hostile spacefaring race is hot on their heels itching to blast Earth out of existence, and the show will end with them meandering off into the Void with the vague hope of finding someplace else to call home.

    I think the humans and Cylons will live together in peace on Earth. Either they arrrive together, or they make peace soon afterwards. What if all the humans on Earth are dead from nuclear war, and they have to repopulate the planet?

    I would assume now. But, of course, that's not necesarily true.

    But he was right about Starbuck having been to earth. But what's this bullshit about the next episode not being until 2008?

    And can anyone believe, despite his son's nice speech, that Adama would vote to aquit?

    Beatles? Beatles? BEATLES?

    Bob fucking Dylan! "All along the watchtower"!!! (Sounds kinda like a Hendrix remix though...bastard synthesizers.)

    Jesus!! WTF is wrong with you people??!?

    And what the fuck is a bunch of Cylons doing sending messages through the void hitched to a Bob Dylan tech remix?

    I still hold that it is a transmission from Earth from the distance past. The fact that it is a Dylan tune seems to fit well.

    Madanthonywayne:

    Even moreso than the huge reveal that Saul, Sam, The Chief, and the president's aid were all Cylons (the fifth being Starbuck?), the fact that there are no episodes till 2008?

    The biggest and most unpleasant shocker!

    What the HELL is up with -9 months- without BSG?!

    But wow, big news. A BSG 2 hour direct-to-video movie:

    SCI FI Channel confirmed on March 22, 2007 that the show has been renewed for a fourth season of 22 episodes, an increase from the previously announced 13 episodes. The order includes a two hour presentation of a direct-to-video movie airing in the fourth quarter of 2007. The regular fourth season will air beginning in early 2008.[9][10]

    As for my theory:

    I do not believe that Battlestar shall return us to a present-day Earth. This isn't "Stargate". Rather, I imagine three choices:

    1. An extremely advanced Earth-based civilization, essentially 3,000 years ahead of the technology of either Cylons or Colonists. Judging from Kara and her vision, I am thinking a Hybrid Civilization, where the distinction between Cylon and Human is no more.

    2. A planet vacant but for the Gods of the Colonists.

    3. A planet ripe for colonization, but completely barren of intelligent life, the 13th Colonists having died at least a thousand years prior.

    Just joking, really.
    Funny as hell when the lyric clicked.

    I figured the Admiral would be in the minority on the verdict, but was pretty sure Uncle Balty would squeak by.

    No clue what they're going to find on Earth, in spite of my earlier ramblings.
    Can't wait to find out, though.

    I loathe the fact that Adama didn't vote Baltar guilty. But I think he did it because Apollo proved to him that he was wrong in calling him "without integrity".

    Sure, I agree. Apollo gave a great speech. But Baltar still should have fried. And I don't believe Adama would have voted to acquit.

    Since there's no BSG for nine months, here's something to tide you by:

    I'll always think of that song in the Hendrix version.

    Nahhh... Not with the case they made against him - or didn't.
    Then again, I always saw him as amoral, rather than immoral, so I'm biased - plus I would have done all the stuff he did too just to see where it led.
    You don't get chances like that every day.
    LoL

    Whoa...
    They're all over the place with the scene-splicing.
    Gotta dig that pseudo-cylon helmet they slapped on the original Baltar.
    "Burrrrn, Galactica...!"
    LoL
