Despite the fleet population being ~50,000 people, the number on President Roslin's "White Board" is updated to only reflect changes in military/ govt personnel, but not births & deaths of the civilian population at large.

Factual errors 

In the miniseries pilot, Colonel Tigh says no one has attempted a jump in 20 or 22 years, yet, a few minutes later, just as they execute the jump, Cally observes that she "hates this part". This is actually not a mistake however as Cally is referring to having experienced jumps many times through training simulations.

Plot holes 

The Cylons simply could not kill of the BILLIONS of humans who lived in the Colonies with a simple nuclear war and then a follow up invasion.Even if the majority of the populations on all of the planets lived in or near cities that were struck, most of the people would have survived both the nuclear strikes, the subsequent radiation and the majority of Cylon raids that followed. Failing the use of a genetically engineered pathogen in addition to the nukes and the their raids, the Cylons would still have to contend with as many as several hundred million human beings in addition to those escaping in the Galactica fleet.

If the humanoid Cylons are only distinguishable from humans by the fact that there were only six models of them, why aren't they considered to be human beings? After all, if they can mate successfully with human beings and have all of the same bodily functions, are they not human?

Additionally, the equipment or biological changes that allow the Cylons to communicate with the robotic Cylons and their ships should be apparent if/when they are scanned. Yet no one during the entire run of series seems to have consider this.
