    • Nomion's 3rd Sonata, 2nd Movement
      Starbuck accuses Slick, the piano player, of copying Nomion's 3rd Sonata as he is working on ideas for the 2nd movement of his original piece. Slick is actually copying a piece titled "Exploration", which was written by Stu Phillips for the original 1970s Battlestar Galactica movie. Thus, the "famous" Colonial composer Nomion is based on the real-life Stu Phillips, composer for the original Battlestar series. Bear McCreary confirmed this on his official blog.
