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

Towards the end of the episode, when the people are heading off in different directions and the camera slowly pans towards Karl, Sharon and Hera, if you look carefully at the bottom left of the screen, just as Karl says "There's game on this planet" an out of focus fly can be seen landing on the camera lens and move towards the corner edge of the screen.

Goofs

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 »

The age old question has finally been answered ........
27 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
