Re: Was the ending realistic?
Since in the mini, it was said their society deliberately downgraded it's technology to avoid how vulnerable it made them to Cylons, I think it's kind of plausible they'd be predisposed to abandoning advance technology to rid themselves of the problem once and for all. I also think it makes them kind of stupid.
They could have completely rebuilt and just outlawed slavery.
