I still maintain that one of the loose ends of the show was the unknown number of base ships dotted around space when the big base blew up. How many base ships were there?
I think we are supposed to assume they were irrelevant, because the Colony was destroyed, Cavil was dead, and so the Cylons had no leadership and no home base. They also didn't know where the "new" Earth was.
I understand that even with jump capability, although I never understood how base ships were actually powered, there would no chance of them ever finding anyone again, with the exception of each other. However it still niggled.
They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
