    Does anyone know if there are plans on bringing in any of the old cast next season?

    I know Dirk Benedict was planned but then got some attitude. Any chance that he can still make an appearance.

    I still think he would have been a great Cain.

    It seemed a bit far fetched to me as well ---- but the did say "peer" like interaction.......Being a peer to Adama would mean on his level, no? I could be wrong but it sure sounded like CO of the Pegesas.......on disk 3 if you have it--give it a listen and tell me what you think. I was shocked that dropped such huge nugget.

    Doesn't being CAG make her third in command? I seem to remember someting along those lines with Lee.

    That makes about as much sence as Kara leading marines to end a hostage situation. No sence at all. Kara is not a leader.

    Wait, where did you get all this info about ep.16 ? Do you have access to scripts ? I think we might need to become best friends ...

    But she’s been filling in for Lee when he isn’t around (Water) and she also lead Galactica fighters to the battle in the miniseries. So she has some experience of being a lead.

    Some eperience sure. But, that is not enough. Appolo is not perfect either but, I think Kara lacks the control he has. I won't start complaining if Kara becomes CAG. I will however, start when she is put in charge of charging marines again ...

    I don't think Kara is a great leader, either. She's too impulsive with too much of a hair trigger temper. I'm just saying that her being CAG as opposed to being in line for leadership of the Pegasus makes more sense. To be XO of a battlestar you need to be able to see the big picture.

    That's basically what Sackhoff said...that Starbuck gets tossed into every given situation and generally fucks things up for lack of a better term. Not to worry though, spoilers seem to indicate that she gets promoted because Lee gets promoted to XO of Pegasus, leaving the CAG spot open.

    Sackhoff seems to have a good handle on her character. I keep having to remind myself that she didn't ask to be "super Starbuck."

    Yeah...I only wish Scott Bakula had her level of good sense during the run of Enterprise. The show would have been better for it.

    All things I'd also like to know. I'm also really curious to know how the people in the RTF will see her after this (assuming they know, I assume they do if they knew she was dying before). I mean in 47-49,000 people there's got to be at least a few who would argue that it makes her a cylon now (blah). Surely it will crop up during the (what must be now) impending election. I hope that it doesn't change the way Adama sees her. I trust he would know more than the average extremist in the fleet. And what with her cancer and then possibly losing Billy she's going to need his support. Or atleast gods dammit recently they've just gone back to being supportive of one another, I hope he's there for her. And yes I wonder if we'll see acknowledgement of her not telling him about her cancer or will it be just one of those unspoken things? And what's with the flashback to Adar that RDM mentioned? How many months to go again?????

    and that's the thing with the script excerpts for spoilers. They contain very little of either Roslin or Adama. It's good (there's no spoilers) and bad (there's no spoilers!!!).
    Ah, the spoiler whore's paradox. :angel::devil:

    On the Discovery Health Channel's series on Lance Armstrong-inspuired cancer reoveries, there was this "magical" stem cell solution.

    A woman had severe recurring cancer. One technique they tried was giving her adult brother (a close genetic match) drugs to extremely boost his stem cells. THey took out the blood, centrifuged out a majority of the stem cells, and returned the rest to her brother.

    It helped quite a bit, though not the final solution for her. So the "magical stem cell solution" is in fact a reality...but as you said, it may be not as effective as killing embryos, but it can work. And with less ethical dilemma.

    I wouldn't be so worried about "magical stem cells" as much as Boomer being the nuBSG's "Wesley Crusher" -- the source of all the week's major problems. (i.e. Fiber optic plug in to CYlon fighters? ?)

    Actually no. The magical stem cell solution is in no way a reality. Adult stem cells don't work that well; it turns out that what makes bone marrow produce blood is the stem cells in bone marrow (thus when you say "I need a marrow transplant", you really might as well say "I need a bone marrow Stem Cell transplant" because it's the stem cells in the marrow you want.

    Secondly, I honestly cannot understand the sequence of event you just described. Not clear.

    Adult Stem Cells aren't the majic bullet, they do some things but as they lack any telomerase their telomeres will degrade over time to the point that they senescense; they aren't highly effective.



    You got your information from a one hour tv show. I am a biology major at university, and we were taught this last month. And I am telling you, whatever thing you saw would not be a full cure.

    Oh, the raider must have some visible surface damage. Scar. I get it. They call the raider "scar." It's probably a double meaning title. Refers to emotional scars as well.
