Lords of Kobol! They are fourty light years from earth and the jump engines will no longer spin up. Starbuck's Prince: Boxxy will wind up commanding the Galactica by the time they get anywhere near Earth.

Virtual Six will tell Baltar to turn the big wheel in Galactica's engine room next week, and the ship will be transported through time.

All that has happened before will then happen again.

For those curious:

From Battlestar wiki:
  • The title comes from the book The Outermost House, by Henry Beston, where he chronicles his time spent living on an isolated beach in Cape Cod. In the chapter "Night on the Great Beach" he wrote, "For a moment of night we have a glimpse of ourselves and of our world islanded in its stream of stars— pilgrims of mortality, voyaging between horizons across eternal seas of space and time."

^^^it's definitely one of the more 'poetic' sounding titles they've chosen...sort of reminds me of the great episode titles ST:TOS often had.

Yeah. I also like 'Kobol's Last Gleaming', 'Valley of Darkness' and 'Sometimes a Great Notion'.
