Syfy (ended 2010)
Wouldn't it be neat if Helo and Athena make use of all the confusion to stage a raid on the Basestar and get Hera back?
I doubt the writers would lose such valuable plot devices as Hera and Athena (Helo hasn't shown me much lately but that could change).
President Roslin has already stated that Hera must never fall into the hands of the Cylons. Also, based on Admiral Adamas' reaction to finding out about the whole "hide the baby" plot I'm guessing his sense of honor would cause him to try to make some sort of amends for that injustice.
Therefor: If Helo and Athena make the attempt, authorized or not, the leadership would commit assets to support them (sorry, military speak for going to their rescue / helping them out). One possible story line would be the inevitable cliffhanger race against time to get them off of the Basestar before it goes up in a ball of nuclear fire.
Another would be our friend Baltar escaping while rescuing baby Hera in some lame attempt at ingratiating himself with the Colonials. At that point I would thank him for his help and summarily chuck him out the nearest airlock anyway (but thats just me).
However: I also don't see that much room in the remaining schedule for much of any of this so either we wait for next season (unlikely), or those clever folks who actually get paid to think this stuff up will find a much neater way to deal with it all.
Yea the Galactica was a relic about to be decommished and it had 4 nukes and Pegasus was a top of the line ship so it probably had a ton of nukes.
Following the "don't put all of your eggs in one basket" doctrine it would make sense to have shifted over at least some of the Pegasus' ordinance, including some of the other equipment like a few Vipers and Raptors. Although it wasn't specifically outlined in the story it would also stand to reason that Lee Adama would have ordered the crew to stuff everything they could lay their hands on into anything left that was flyable when he put the Pegasus into her suicide dive.
All in all I feel recently the episdoes have been subpar. What do you guys think?
|I nearly couldn't stop laughing at Brother Cabbal's sarcastic "We come in peace" statement|
Yeah, I also thought that part was really funny and it made me laugh too. As always, I loved Roslin in this episode, and I loved Mary's acting when she and Admiral Adama met with the Cylons. That scene was my #1 favorite scene from this episode. All in all, this was a fantastic episode with a great cliffhanger. I can't wait for the next episode.
I like this episode, I mean surely one of the marks of a good episode is that it makes people ask questions and speculate about whats to come, reading all of the posts before this one, that seems to be the case!
I like Starbuck too, I think that she is very strong but like someone said, she is also very child like and I take that to be that she has a vulnerability as well as that she is petulent, she is confused but she is working through it. She does confuse me though, just because we have seen time and time again and she said it - not in so many words - that religion is mportant to her, yet she took her 'oath' to Anders - who btw in my opinion is an idiot, dont care how much you love someone, you dont stand around and let them cheat on you, especially if Lee isnt the first one (although that may have just been meaness as he is frakkin his wife - and wont divorce him but she will stomp all over that Oath?
Lee, I also like Apollo, I have heard people say that they dont like the Lee/Kara relationship as it is affecting their ability to do their jobs. I dont agree with this, were it affecting them doing their jobs, Apollo would have been right there with Anders ready to run off into the Cylon occupied forest to rescue Starbuck, instead he stayed and did his job to hold the line and sent the closest recon team to rescue her as is militarily sound - it just happened to be his wife is all.
Athena and Helo are p****d right now but I think there is a possibility that in time they will understand why Roslyn hid Hera, they may not neccessarily forgive her but they will understand. It woud be cool if they went and got Hera and I have a feeling that that is why Boomer told her. Sharon knows herself and though some may see the reason for Boomer telling was to try and get Athena to defect, I doubt this as she would know that she would find it difficult and she also knows the love for the Galactica family that Sharon has and how much of an influence Adama would be and surely wouldnt risk it. Also the kid is sick and perhaps Boomer may feel that if she were with her mother she would get better.
I dont know they were just a few thoughts
