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 final draft script, Chief Tyrol's final lines mentioned him moving to an island off the northern continent. At the request of Aaron Douglas, this line was expanded to include a mention of the "highlands". Ronald D. Moore, in the episode commentary, confirms that this line is intended to imply that Tyrol is the founder of Scotland. See more »

Goofs

Admiral Adama states that "they are a million light years away from the colonies". Yet, at a distance of one million light years from Earth in any direction there are no stars or galaxies. The next galaxy (Andromeda) would be 2.5 million light years away and the Milky Way itself is only 100,000 light years in diameter. That being said, Adama could have simply been using an inexact phrase to illustrate that they were far from home. 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.
