The space battle, short as it was, was pretty amazing. I've missed seeing the flak screen. Did anyone else notice the Basestar missiles went straight through the Osiris? I found it a little odd that the CGI folks put that detail in there instead of the usual exploding on contact. Poor Osiris. "Brace for contact, my friend."
It was interesting to see the cylon snakes and I hope they show more organic/synthetic hybrid experiments in future episodes. Maybe even early experiments with humanoid cylons. One can hope.
