And yet he pretty accurately described the raid on the colony (save for his description of Helo's fate).
I read somewhere that Tahmoh petitioned them to change his ending so that Helo survived. Stockwell did the same with Cavil (Tigh was going to kill Cavil in the original script).
Correct on both counts. As originally scripted, Helo bled out on the deck and died, while Tigh flung Cavil off the upper deck of the CIC. Dean Stockwell called Moore and suggested the suicide, while Penikett said that after all of the shit Helo went through, he didn't want to go out like that.

I'm quite glad Helo survived, he did go through a hell of a lot, and he ended up being one of my favourite characters. Couldn't give less of a shit about Cavil, though.
