Storyline

In a distant part of the galaxy lie The Twelve Colonies of Man, a civilization that has been at peace for some forty years with an empire of machines, the Cylons, who were created generations before as worker drones for mankind, but became independent, rose in rebellion, and launched war on their masters. Now, the Cylons have evolved into more human form, into machine-created biological beings, who seek to exterminate true biological humans. To this end they use a human scientist, Gaius, to help one of their infiltrators, known as #6, penetrate the Colonies' master defense mainframes; Gaius is reluctant but smitten by #6, a Cylon woman of seemingly insatiable sexual desire, and the result of their affair is a nuclear sneak-attack that obliterates the Colonies and the star navy deployed for their protection.

Problem: whether the patch worked by suction or was magnetic, the diamond plate texture on the floor would have prevented a full seal, and the Raptor would have continued to lose air until the breach was repaired. Despite the air loss, Boomer does not replace her helmet when the Raptor lifts off at 1:19:44, and still has it off at 1:35:30, when she should be rationing air for the passengers and ensuring she still has air to pilot the ship.
