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 final scene is stated to take place on the streets of modern day New York City but in the final shot, the Canadian-style "do not enter" sign and the transit bus in TransLink livery reveals it was actually Vancouver BC. See more »

A superb way to end the series
22 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
