As the new Battlestar Galactica series wound down to its final episodes, I had some fun trying to decipher the clues and figure out what it all meant and how it was going to end. I'm sure that loads of articles and message board postings have been written on the subject and scattered around the internet, but I haven't had the time or inclination to read any of them, so these are my own independent musings. I expect others have come up with some of the same theories and conclusions. Feel free to point me to any interesting reading; I'll get around to it eventually. Also I should confess I'm a terrible historian so I don't remember every little detail (or even some huge ones) from past episodes and haven't bothered to research them, so much of this is drawn from my limited and skewed memory. There are contradictions here, but I don't presume to say these ideas are complete or even consistent.
