But many of these planets might not been habitable in their original conditions. Any number of them could have been terraformed (or kobolformed
as the case may be).
Then why was the very notion of terraforming never even mentioned in the show? One would think that would be a major factor in finding a new planet to settle on. For instance, if they had terraforming technology, they could've set about making New Caprica less harsh. Even if it was a decades-long process, they intended to stay there forever so why wouldn't they have at least attempted it?
