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

Kara Trace quotes directly from the song, "All Along the Watchtower" as she's inputting the coordinates for Earth into the FTL drive: "There must be some kind of way out of here". The song's notes are a integral part of finding a new home for humanity and the ultimate conclusion of the show. See more »

Goofs

The events of the finale was supposed to have taken place 150,000 years ago. Therefore, when Galactica jumped to our Earth after rescuing Hera, shots of the African continent from space should have shown the Sahara to be lush and green rather than the pale desert it is today. See more »

GOD wins
27 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found myself compelled to write this review after reading a number of bad reviews.

To be perfectly honest, I really didn't like Season 4 overall. The budgets must have been tightened and the special effects started to really suck. The cylons started to look like cartoons.

In a lot of ways I thought the series jumped the shark once so many main characters were revealed as cylons.

Further, the story line and direction became choppy and hard to follow.

But when all is said and done, I must admit that I liked the very final episode. It essentially tied it all together in a good way. The people who didn't like the ending are just depressed debbie downers who probably voted for obama.

It's a good ending that pretty much takes care of wrapping up the series that started so strong then lost it way, but comes back at the end.
