Storyline

A stripped down Galactica attacks the Cylon's Colony ship in the hopes of rescuing Hera. The meaning of the shared dream in the Opera House on Kobol is revealed. Sam Anders is moved in his Hybrid tank to the CIC in the hopes that he will be able to assist the combatants. Their mission complete, Admiral Adama orders Starbuck to pick a destination - any destination - to which the ship can jump to get out of there. With that, the meaning of the tune and the musical notes are explained. Having successfully jumped, the old Galactica has truly reached the end of it's life. A planet capable of sustaining life is found and Lee Adama makes a radical proposal for the future of humankind. In a flash forward far into the future, Hera's importance to the human race is revealed. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the extended DVD cut of this episode, the scene where Cally interrupts Tyrol and Boomer in the workroom, then warns Tyrol to "be careful", is a deleted scene that was filmed for the original miniseries. Because of this scene, Nicki Clyne (Cally) gets screen credit for the extended cut, even though she didn't film any new material. See more »

Goofs

As they plan out the deployment their population on the map of earth, the map shown is of Earth today, not as it would have been at a time pre-language humans. A visible example is of Tasmania's disconnection from Australia which occurred only 10,000 years ago. See more »

Quotes

Sharon "Boomer" Valerii: [watches in disbelief as Simon calmly runs medical tests on Hera, despite the fact Cylon Colony is being invaded] You're gonna just keep doing the tests? Even with the colony coming down among your ears?
Simon: I think you over estimate their chances. They may have confused our Hybrids temporarily, but we have superior fire power and superior numbers, and in the end, its all about about mathematics.
[Boomer then breaks Simon's neck, killing him instantly]

I really didn't like it.
21 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Did anyone else feel as betrayed as I did? The first hour or so was pretty solid but the last. Oh my god. It seemed like it was predictable and cheesy. Not grandiose and epic like the entire run of the show has been. Most reviews have read have been glowing but I really can't understand why. I had seriously predicted that general ending WAY earlier on but then retracted it because I thought "No, they would never do that, that's FAR too lame." I can hardly stand it. I feel so unsatisfied. I think i'm about to walk out the door to go sell every season I own. Someone please. Change my mind. I want to love this. SO bad. Someone tell me why I'm wrong. Great show. Terrible ending.
