I'm still hoping for an explanation of why the fleet was still so built up during the long period between the end of the war and opening of the mini-series. Was it just because they were in a "cold war" and kept up the fleet just in case? Was there intra-colony warfare before the Cylons that led to them having a fleet like that?
I thought the implied reason was that the Colonies were never totally convinced the Cylons would honor the armistice in perpetuity, and in fact some even agitated to "finish what they started."
