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

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 »

Quotes

Admiral William Adama: [explaining to Laura Roslin why they named their new home Earth] Earth is a dream... one we've been chasing for a long time. We've earned it. This is Earth.

Fantastic
10 November 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

An incredible journey with a cute ending. It makes sense and gives a innocent variant to most sci-fi series. I'm just going to miss no. 6.............

This is possibly the best sci-fi I have ever seen that deals with the issues of today's life. We live in a world of equality and prejudice and many other problems. As an expectant father, I will confidently know that my children will watch this series when they are older to explain and give balance to their perspective on life. This is a series to learn from and is fascinating and reflective, as well as engrossing. I lost the last month watching the complete series, and was continually rewarded with an after reflection with most episodes. A near perfect series.

This is proof that sci-fi can have an educational theme.
