  • Who would have guessed that a SciFi show that others thought had to do with space battles and enemy cyborgs would deal with such deep human issues of everyday life? Well written.

    The show was a conclusion - not a conclusion to the BSG storyline but a conclusion in letting go of wish dreams and coming to grips with the future. Adama and Tigh want Galactica to go on. Starbuck wants to hold on to the life she had. Even little Hera wants to hold on to being with her Mom. But Adama and Tigh have to realize that Galactica won't be fixed, Starbuck has to realize that she did die and she isn't going to have Anders back as she remembered him, and Hera has to come to grips that Boomer isn't going to turn the ship back and she must deal with Boomer instead of with her Mom. And everyone has let go of Earth being the answer.

    It's obvious that Adama has more planned than just to cannibalize Galactica for the rest of the fleet. Cavil's nefarious plans obviously involve repopulating the Cylons somehow through Hera. I doubt Helo will be at peace with Adama's decision. What parent would? But maybe he'll hold on and trust 'the old man.'

    How about that Cylon colony? Looked like the Borg Queen's headquarters! But BSG is so much deeper than old Voyager ever was.

    So now that they have let go of the past, what future is in store?

    We'll have to wait till next Friday,
