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
Late in the writing process, it was realized that the "opera house" sequence could be shown to parallel the ongoing battle on Galatica. Anders' hybrid tank was set up on the CIC balcony, and it was arranged that the other four Cylons be near him, so that the "final five" could be posed in a manner similar to that shown in the opera house dream. In order for the actors to be visible at the appropriate angle, however, a safety railing had to be removed from the CIC balcony. See more »
They're supposed to be in Africa, yet near the end when Admiral Adama and the President get in the Raptor they're situated in front of a stand of paper birch. These are trees found only in North America. See more »
Perfection. That's what it's about. It's those moments. When you can feel the perfection of creation. The beauty of physics, you know, the wonder of mathematics. The elation of action and reaction, and that is the kind of perfection that I want to be connected to.

The age old question has finally been answered ........
In the forgettable film Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Captain Kirk posed the immortal question "What does God need with a starship?" For nearly 20 years, that question went unanswered .... until now.
Ronald D. Moore, a former Star Trek writer, finally answered that question.
The Question: What does God need with a starship? The answer: To give to Kara Thrace.
****Note: I cannot take credit for this. I would like to thank my friend Chris G. for bringing this to our attention****
On a serious note, Ronald D. Moore deserves a lot of credit for resurrecting ( no pun intended ) a short lived '70s series into one the greatest science fiction series of all time. Kudos for a fantastic finale. I am sure there are other fans out there who feel the same way I do ... it's going to feel weird not seeing a new BSG episode Fridays @ 10pm on the sci/fi channel and talking about it with their friends and co-workers on Monday.
