Cylon #7 -crazy thought

OK, this is to build on the comments about Kara glowing when Anders was looking at the people standing around the bed in "No Exit".

What if Cylon #7 is Kara and she is Daniel in disguise??? Just roll with me for a minute --

Cavil/John boxes the #7 Daniel line, however, one is resurrected. Now we know from the episode that the programming and coding can be changed based on the dialog of Ellen. So, in order to keep/preserve all the models as active, Ellen adjusted Daniel's physical appearance to be a woman and the real Daniel is a man (that looks like Dirk Benedict. )

So back to my point, Kara is a one off, she is a woman, yet is kind of butch which represents her hastily overwritten original programming which made her female.

What do you think??

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

On one hand, I like it. On the other, I don't like the somewhat sexist idea that it would introduce: that the reason Kara is a strong, kick-ass woman is that she is secretly a dude.

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

If Starbuck is "Daniel", wouldn't she be Dana Thrace?

Maybe, but I suspect she's just a human who was resurrected. Because humans = Cylons. They're precisely the same, and any dead human can be rebuilt by resurrection tech as easily as any nominal "Cylon."

Explaination Starbuck Kara She crashed on earth died the Earth resurrection equipment in orbit replaced the dead one. That is the reason she glowed like the others. I have a feeling the Daniel is Baltaar.

I agree, the Cylons from Earth and the humans now are so close together that something from Earth made a new Starbuck.

Dan can be Starbuck, wouldn't rule it out.

I think it could be Zac Adama, or a piano player, the piano player is more likely. I heard Starbuck's dad, that's possible too.

Or it could be no one and explains why there were 12 and not 13 and why there is no 7. It has no other meaning than John is a bitch.

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

In fact, doesn't Starbuck's resurrection mean there's a perfectly serviceable resurrection hub of some capacity somewhere on or near Earth? That she is something really close to Cylon, if not exactly? Shouldn't the 5 see that?

I'm convinced they're going to go back to Earth.

I had thought about this, that she somehow is the reincarnation of Daniel.

But then how would you explain the new viper?

I think Daniel is the one that was appearing as leoben in her dreams in 'Maelstrom' and is out there orchestrating some events.

^I dunno, fabrication facility. If you can rebuild a human body, a Viper should be doable, assuming the infrastructure is there. Even more reason to reinvestigate Earth.

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

If Starbuck was a Cylon and was "resurrected" how come she dont have no memories of waking up in the goo bath?

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

For the same reason none of the Final Five do - her memories were wiped.

Ellen says Daniel was an artist.

Hmmmmm .... Kara is an artist.

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

There's actually another interesting connection between Kara and the final five: The pattern Kara always used to paint as a child aka the Maelstrom. It's quite possible she got this from her dad (if he is / was Daniel) who could have it from the final five. Plus he was an artist even more so than Kara might be considered to be.

Re: Cylon #7 -crazy thought

I think Daniel is Starbuck's pop...Ellen said he was artistic, Starbuck's dad was Philip Glass (Valley of Darkness reference - Get it?)... Starbuck is the original Hybrid, take a hike Hera.
