Trivia:
Human beings have apparently received a major upgrade between the original DVD release of the pilot episode and its subsequent broadcast on SyFy. Originally, the contents of the human mind were stated to be only approximately 300 megabytes of data. In the newer version, this has been changed to 100 terabytes via the magic of a cutaway to cover footage in which Zoe is seen from behind.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: During the scene when Daniel Graystone is talking to Joseph Adama about bringing Zoe into the "real world", you can see a number of technical textbooks and manuals in the bookcase behind him. They have titles referring to Windows, Linux, Sharkware, and Powerpoint, among other things.See more »
Quotes:

Joseph Adama:Tammy? My Gods!
Tamara Adama:Daddy?
[Runs to and embraces Joseph]
Joseph Adama:My Gods.
[Tamara cries]
Joseph Adama:It's okay, baby. I'm right here.
Tamara Adama:I'm so scared.
Joseph Adama:I'm right here.

Thumbs up!, 23 May 2009
Author: harbcard from United States

If the show lives up to the pilot, I think you have the makings of real destination TV. I was not a fan of BSG's reboot only because it really became such a hopeless vision. I read all the reviews on how it was a post 9/11 Sci-fi world but it really didn't offer a solution only a dream of a solution. This prequel shows how dreams are perverted. In a very entertaining way, with a great cast. I'm there for the series. Eric Stolz was great. The CGI work was better than average for TV. I need to know more about the fedora wearing Taurons. Also why was there a Ramada on Caprica, as evidenced in the reflection in the coffee shop's door.
