Storyline

Starbuck has been having vivid dreams, centered on the circular symbol she has been drawing since childhood and which is eerily similar to the symbol they found when looking for the Eye of Jupiter. Leoben Conroy and his comment to her that she has a destiny also figure prominently in her dreams. Tyrol suggests that she visit an oracle who repeats, word for word, what Leoben had told her. She recalls the difficult relationship she had with her domineering and abusive mother. She also begins to doubt her own mental state when she begins seeing things that are not there. Apollo convinces her to continue flying, with him as her wingman, but tragedy results. Written by garykmcd

They had the last what? 4 or 5 episodes to do SOMETHING with the main plot?? And they turned the show into mini-dramas where nothing happens. I can't believe how boring this show is now. I sit down and I just know that nothing is going to happen to the main storyline at all. In fact, I could skip the next several episodes and just pick up where I left off to see what happened. There's not even a story to keep track of because each episode has no impact on the next.

Honestly I'm not much of a sci-fi fan. I used to like this show because something would happen. Now we have to sit through how many court / trial episodes? A dramatic trial.. That's never been done on a TV show before.

I'm done with this show.
