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

Great ending for a great series
22 March 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Finally a series could be ended in the correct way. Usually series just goes on and on until they are canceled by some suit.

But not BSG. BSG ended on its own terms.

BSG was a great series and it ended in a great way which blew me away. It ended in more of a theist way than the more more atheist approach of the 1978-version: but not done in a preachy way.

Most ends were tighed and most questions were answered. And that is what i like. We do not have to be told everything. We can second guess for over selves.

Ronald Moore did not go towards the "ancient astronaut"-ending, like in the original 1978-BSG. And first i was disappointed. But now that the final episode has settled in my mind i rejoice and am glad. The 70ties were another time - today we need different answer to the fundamental question: Why? And the series finale episode did give a good answer to why.

It was a good ending for the series. And i know i am going to see the episode over and over again and again. Just like when the season finale of season 3 came (that fracking song).

Overall i really liked the series (just not all that suicide-bombing glorifying of start season 3 and all the other left wing political references to the Iraq war).

It was a more or less decent and good show. I liked it. And i loved the final episode. Now what do i do?
