Probably. But Baltar coolly sits down and watches Tyrol pummel Hot Dog, with a statisfied look about both that and the angry crowd he stirred up. They have to make Athena's kid special. Otherwise what was the point of a good chunk of the last three years fighting over her?[/quote] As we know, she was still the first human-cylon kid. And the Cylons wanted her, plus Laura and her frakked up dreams. There was already that set-up, none of it was necessarily negated by Tyrol fathering a child after that plot line was set-up, especially since the whole story of the final 5 hasn't been determined (that perhaps they don't have the other 7 models' reproductive weakenesses). Not sure the "ret-con" was needed.
