    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Goof: When Troy (who is a grown-up Boxey) and Dillon are with Jamie in the diner, Jamie orders coffee for them. The two use their scanners to find out what coffee is. But in the episode "The Lost Warrior" from the original series there was a scene where the young Boxey is playing Pyramid with Blue Squadron and Athena came in and got on them for letting him drink coffee, among other bad habits. So how could they not know what coffee is?

      • Boomer now wears the uniform of a Commander.

      • Goof: Our heroes rescue a little girl from the Nazi train. We know she is Jewish from the huge yellow star on her coat. This was a sign for the Germans to know who to arrest. It is a bright yellow star, and easy to see. Yet somehow they manage to march the girl through a German city without anyone stopping them before they reach the headquarters of the underground.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Dillon : ( driving Mortensen's car) I don't suppose it flies, does it?
        Jamie : Flies? What's he on?
        Mortensen : It's a simple internal combustion engine that turns a driveshaft that rotates wheels.
        Dillon : Talk about primitive. Haven't you people ever heard of anti gravity?

    • NOTES (1)

      • Goof: Assuming that Xavier would have succeeded in his mission had Troy, Dillon and Jamie not gone back and interfered, present Earth should have changed the moment he went back in time. While this may or may not have affected those aboard Galactica, who were not part of Earth's history, Jamie certainly should have been affected and either shouldn't even existed or would not be the same person.
