Season 4 Episode 19

A Symmetry of Imperfection

Aired Unknown Apr 26, 2004 on Syfy



  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: Dylan shoots out a window on the Maru in order to manually work a mechanism on Andromeda. But it only took one or two shots from his weapon to destroy the glass, which is highly unlikely, given that any glass on a space ship ought to be a lot tougher than that. If not, a micro-meteor or a simple accident during would have put the ship's integrity into constant jeopardy, and endangered the crews' lives.

    • This episode marks the first time we see the evolved version of the Magog in this timeline. We previously saw a future version of them in the episode "Abridging the Devil's Divide".

  • Quotes

    • Dylan: What were you thinking, putting in a program like this behind my back?!
      Harper: Come on, boss, I do things behind your back all the time. (Dylan glares at him) Did I just say that out loud?

    • Rhade: Another screw up from our lovable, and soon to be bruised and battered, engineer?

    • Beka: (asked to select an asteroid) Hmm... every girl's dream: Being asked to pick out a big rock!

    • Harper: Not to worry, boss, the dents'll be fixed in no time.
      : Being blown into a million pieces doesn't really qualify as dents!
      Harper: I can't fix anything if you kill me!

    • (Dylan turns off Rommie)
      Dylan: Too bad that doesn't work on you, Harper.
      Harper: I bet you say that to all the guys.
      Dylan: Thin ice, very thin ice.

    • (talking about Rhade's plan)
      Trance: Dangerous.
      Beka: Crazy.
      Dylan: I like it.

    • Rommie: My emotions are your emotions.
      Andromeda: Not anymore.

    • Within the perfect architecture of thought,
      logic may often provide structure
      but from emotion come the inspiration.
