Indeed. Adama's original plan to use both battlestars was so much better tactically. The two battlestars could have held the 4 Cylon basestars off easily and probably destroyed at least 2-3 of them. At the very least Pegasus should have jumped back to the civvy fleet when things turned against them in Exodus, Part II. They would be doing a LOT better now if they had a mostly undamaged Pegasus vs a 50 year old falling apart Galactica.

RDM has said in recent interviews that many of the show's mysteries and plot points will come together by the end of the series. I have hope that many of the things listed in this thread will be addressed.

My biggest questions:

- What's with the Opera House?

They have to find the Opera House so the fat lady can sing.

It had to happen. The premise of the story required it.

Also was it really necessary to blow up Cloud 9?

I'm still waiting for answers on the pegboard and the corners being cut off of every piece of paper.

The deck crew has been making moonshine since season one. I assume that they got better over time.

1.) What the Frak is Kara?
She's a new Cylon created by the same mechanisms that recreated the final 5.
4.) Why/How is everyone on Earth a Cylon
Why not? Probably only the Cylons on Kobol settled Earth which was presumably depopulated at the time.
5.) How and Why did the final 5 survive 2,000 years ago to now
Guessing that they did not exist for most of that time. Wasn't it 4000 years anyway.

I think they were in some sort of data storage and the Earth feed somehow hijacked the resurrection technology of the Cylons near the colonies. Guessing that the resurrection technology on Earth either did not exist or was destroyed. They were dependant on other Cylons developing it but if "what happens before happens again" then it wouldn't be hard to anticipate that.

I think it more probable the Final Five bestowed resurrection technology on the Seven otherwise Cavil & Co. wouldn't be so worried about the hub being blown up, had the Seven been the keepers of the keys of everlasting life they could always make it again.

I just think this is funny because in Season 1 Adama made a point to give Starbuck "his last cigar."

Definitely possible. But, I think either is as likely along with a multitude of alternatives.

I like to think that they were able to grow the tobacco on New Caprica. Or they're just smoking Roslin's New Caprican Space Weed.
