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

In the final draft script, Chief Tyrol's final lines mentioned him moving to an island off the northern continent. At the request of Aaron Douglas, this line was expanded to include a mention of the "highlands". Ronald D. Moore, in the episode commentary, confirms that this line is intended to imply that Tyrol is the founder of Scotland. See more »

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 »

God did it!
26 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Just one "expression":

Öğğyyykkk!

The first two seasons were great, but the show started to deteriorate in quality with the third season. And the fourth season was really bad. At least I was waiting to see a decent ending. Alas! Nothing of the sort. I wasn't expecting to see a deus ex machina in that those questions you were hoping to be explained more or less merely boiled down to one answer: "God did it." It reminded me of what John Constantine said: "God is a kid with an ant farm." And there were angels, too!
