    Jupiter's ring system isn't very prominent - if that planet was meant to be Jupiter, depicting it without a visible ring system wouldn't really be a big error.

    For the record, though: I'm not saying that this planet absolutely, positively has to be Jupiter... we've seen a Jupiter-like planet, and we've seen the Orion constellation several times now. Perhaps that planet was meant to be Jupiter, in the system they've already visited - perhaps it was Jupiter in a yet-unknown, neighbouring system - perhaps the CGI artists just like NASA's image database so much... ;)

    If they really wanted it to be Jupiter it would have been easy enough to show the eye, or one of the more recognisable moons.

    Yep. And, the sun would be tiny.

    That Gas giant was just one of the many stopping points on her journey... Remember her cursing the ship because it had an old jump drive that couldn't make the trip in one jump?

    Was it just general radiation that affected Loeben at @ Ragarok or was there something specific to it.

    After all the Colonials didn't seem to have an issue (no radiation suits) or maybe it was just an issue with the log term exposure?

    did it have an general effect on the Cylon or just his ability to download after Adama finished him off with the torch?

    But look there on the left, could be the Great Red Spot - which is, of course, unique to Jupiter.:vulcan:

    In retrospect I think Leoben might have just been lying. To what end, who knows?

    Of course, after this last episode, I have to question the radiation on Earth even more, because the Cylons live inside the accretion disk of a black hole. I guess the Cylon Colony is a big lead box.

    At any rate, the colony's not on earth. . .

    Leoben wasn't lying. The radiation affected Doral the same way at the end of the miniseries when he was left for dead on the station.

    They didn't mention exactly what it was, just that "something" had an effect on the Cylons silica relays in their brain.

    Hmmm. There was a specific type of radiation there flooding the compound. If I recall, it was an ammunition depot, specifically placed there because this particular radiation was known to be deadly to the Cylons. Wasn't it?

    Actually, I think you're right.

    On the plus side, I just invented my own Cylon detector. All I need is a small sample of nerve tissue and a spectrometer.:p

    Is the OP trying to speculate that that big asteroid looking thing is supposed to be Earth? Not unless it was imploded from within and a black hole came wandering thru the system...
    Im starting to think that everyone is going to fall into the black hole and end up on Earth...
