Re: Who would have thought....

It's fun to go over some of the older episodes and retcon these potential spoilers into the story. Read those new rumors, and then watch the beginning of Resistance, hell the whole episode. Changes a lot.

Re: Who would have thought....

If they do turn out to be Cylons, I'm wondering if it's something where they "evolved" to the point of giving up their Cylon nature and truly became as human as possible. No more bodies to resurrect into, no more Cylon physiology, etc.. When they left they programmed the remaining Cylons not to think about them. The other humalon Cylons began to figure out what happened and were jealous of them, prompting them to eventually attack the colonies.

You then get the dichotomy where the Final Five want to help humanity, where the others seek to destroy it. To be Cylon and make the most of yourself means you accept the mortality of your existence and give up the perks of being a humanlon.

Me too.

Eick said in an interview at tvguide.com that we'd meet only one of the finale five. Not sure which is telling the truth (this spoiler, or Eick).

Or in Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down, when Tyrol gets the all clear from the Cylon Indicator Machine. Then again, he's probably a different kind of Cylon.

I don't remember, did Baltar sabatoge the machine to give everyone a human result before that episode, or after? It's been a while since I've seen season one, besides the final arc and the first episode.

Re: Who would have thought....

To my knowledge, Baltar never tested Tyrol using the Cylon Detector. However, I honestly don't think it works on Final Fives.

*************

I have it on good authority that the writers actually consider "The Battlestar Pegasus Flashback DVD Movie" coming out in Fall 2007 to be "episodes 1 and 2" of the 22 episode Season 4. Not "episode 0" like the webisodes.

The first episode in January 2008 is "episode 3".

I thought he simply was hiding the results so that he wouldn't get killed if Boomer's programming activated when discovered. Never realized he did it to all of them.

I don't think he scanned the Chief though.

Agreed. It stands to reason there is only one of each model of this group, and it seems they are "more human" than the others. One would think this would apply to their physical makeup as well. They may well be undetectable, either as a result of their evolution or/and as a means to hide themselves from the other Seven models, given the gulf between the two groups of Cylons.

Re: Who would have thought....

I'm starting to think that even calling Final Fives "Cylons" the same as the Significant Seven, is a stretch. They are more or less as far from Significant Sevens as Significant Sevens are humans.

Re: Who would have thought....

Ok, I'm just gonna post this link and move on. I hate it when I'm fooled into thinking something is real, only to find out it isn't because I didn't look hard enough, but I've had a good look round and haven't found anything saying whether this is true or false either way.

So I hereby present the Season 4 Trailer with spoilers/foilers about:

Re: Who would have thought....

I have to say "No" on that one. There are some bits that look to me like whoever posted it has used bits of the Doctor Who title sequence, just slightly altered.

It all looks like old clips from BSG mixed with some bits of clips showing modern aircraft from some movie or something.

Re: Who would have thought....

That's what I was thinking. Most of the new stuff could be from any old Tv show or Film. But I can't figure out the scene with what definately looks like someone in a BSG flightsuit and ejection seat falling through the clouds toward an Earth-planet. That's basically the one scene that made me post it.

Eh, who am I kidding. They're not gonna show fighter jets and space stations before the Pegasus movie has even aired.

To me it looked like it wasa clip from season one when Starbuck ejected onto that planet where she found a Cylon ship.
