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

Good characterization. Shoddy plot development.
26 March 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

BSG was never a well planned series. Creator Ronald Moore himself said in an interview that nothing was planned out in the beginning and every time an episode was written, brainstorming had to be done to get the plot going on forward. As expected, the writers plugged in a number of plot lines, but there are still holes in the plot that you can ram a rhino into it and you won't even get a dent. Many numerous plot lines are completely ignored (the cult of Baltar is one example). Many plot lines are resolved in a very slip shod manner that had me going "Is this for real or is this some sort of early April fools joke?!??" Oh and the preaching of the last 15 minutes. It just would not end! Moore just kept going on and on about how technology can be the end of us all. About how people relying on technology are on a brink. It was *very* irritating to say the least.

But what really ticked me off was the ending. I wont reveal it here explicitly but just say this: I did not enjoy BSG reusing the themes used in "Chariots of the Gods". That was just plain dumb.

In the end, this gets a 6.
