Trivia

The "Previously on Battlestar Galactica" scene in which the characters talk about Sagittaron refugees in Galactica didn't actually appear previously in the show, but was useful to introduce the plot. See more »

Goofs

When Captain Agathon is going through the medical records of Dr. Roberts, the papers appear to be normal foolscap paper, and not cut from all 4 corners as is usual for documents etc. on the series. See more »

Medical Ethics and Uneven Episode
17 November 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The content of the episode is one of the best in terms of philosophical musing on medicine profession dilemma of patient right to refuse treatment, religion/superstition vs public interest. We can think of vaccine or pharma refusal or typical Jewish observance of Sabbath and Jehovah's Witnesses and blood transfusions parallels to name a few. The episode features great scenes, conflicts and dialogs, but is plagued (pun intended) with a few unconvincing performances from non core characters and stereotypical one-dimensional portrayal of Sagittarons, save a quick not particularly insightful comment from Dee (Anastasia Dualla). The themes and story elements are strong, but directing and acting could have been better to hit the point home. The writing created a perhaps simplistic story arc with personal internal drives which led to an unsatisfactory ending instead and of raising more questions and reflection.

All in all a good watch and canvas for further discussion. The Helo and Sal personal opposition was noteworthy, but more time could have been used to examine the themes and weigh the pros and cons like Star Trek usually does.
