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
The original cut (of all three parts) of the series finale ran over four hours long. See more »
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 »
Colonel Saul Tigh:
[Reports on Galactica's status. The ship suffered severe structural damage after jumping away from the Cylon Colony]
We're mostly here. The engines, life support. There's red lines through her lateral structural members. She's broke her back. She'll never jump again.
Admiral William Adama:
Wherever we are is where were gonna stay.

Briefly then, and without spoilers:- For some days before viewing the final part of Battlestar Galactica I speculated privately as to the fate of the major characters and although I partially guessed the ending, nothing could have prepared me for the manner in which it was presented.
My greatest fear after five years of meticulous viewing, DVD collecting and thorough enjoyment was that the producers would end BSG in a manner similar to "The Sopranos". No! I don't want to be allowed to make up my own mind - I want to be told exactly what happens in black and white and a large font please.
Relax; all of the important loose ends are tied, and all of the big questions are answered, although it does leave room for some viewer interpretation on a couple of points, but the key factors are that we now know what happens to the Colonials, to the Cylons and to the major characters within those groups.
Watch end enjoy the end of a five year thrilling ride.
