Adama: This is the Admiral. Just so there'll be no misunderstandings later, Galactica's seen a lot of history, gone through a lot of battles. This will be her last. She will not fail us, if we do not fail her. If we succeed in our mission, Galactica will bring us home. If we don't, it doesn't matter anyway.
Cavil: Please continue stating the perfectly obvious. It fills me with confidence.
The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series.
Edward James Olmos read the "Previously on Battlestar Galactica" line at the beginning of the special two-part broadcast of the final regular episodes of the series.
The second and third hours of the series finale, "Daybreak", aired on the Sci Fi Channel on Friday, March 20, 2009. The extended 2-hour and 11-min. broadcast did not include the usual main title sequence. The survivor count was not shown onscreen either.
Editor's note: Though the final two hours (broadcast time) are considered to be Part 2 of "Daybreak", they have been separated into two episode guides to accommodate links to legal online downloads from iTunes.
