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

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 »

Quotes

Admiral William Adama: [talking to Laura Roslin's grave on a mountain top on Earth] I laid out the cabin today. It's gonna have an easterly view. You should see the light that we get here, when the sun comes from behind those mountains. It's almost heavenly. It reminds me of you.

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.
