Re: Alternate Endings for BSG (Spoilers)

Where is the podcast for this writers retreat that goes into detail about these alternate endings? Didn't Moore say they'd be put up on Sci-fis site?

Re: Alternate Endings for BSG (Spoilers)

I'm curious what would have happened to the Raptors once they ran out of fuel.

Gallactica crashing on the moon would have been interesting; however, it would have been thoroughly thrashed had she entered Earth's atmosphere and smashed into the surface.

Galactica has the special "main character immmortal" shield. She would have impacted on the Earth's surface, but would have survived to rise again. Of course, with the Cylon Goo inside her (that sounds so dirty) whose to say she wouldn't self-repair over the years.

The only thing we need to make a perfect Macross style Galactica ending is Adama standing on the bridge, with a crew of bridge bunnies as the ship takes one last shot at a Cylon basestar that's crashing towards it.

I don't know about that. After all, after that final jump, Tigh stated that her back was broken, plus the piece and parts that were being blown off from depressurization. Rapid, uncontrolled descent like that would have crushed her upon impact and strewn the wreckage for miles -- maybe even hundreds of miles. She was definitely humongous. I never appreciated her size until I saw the Vipers being launches. That was one huge ship, and no way in hell could she land on a planet.

It's like FTL is the speed of plot, if the producers want her to make it down they would have physics be damned. They wanted to "body" to end the series so they launched her into the sun. The irony being, is that they did leave a big "out" for future projects cause there is "no body" we didn't see her go into the sun exactly, only on a course for the sun. They could handwave her into surviving and make a sequel with Earth II humans finding the ship.

Yes. The writers' creative license. Although, when the Chief went down to the FTL engine room, I was tickled at how the machinery was depicted. Very cool.
