    Oh, give me a break. This is not directed at you, America, but is directed at the vast number of posts like this. I am so tired of everyone jumping on Starbuck whenever she does ANYTHING. I hated Super!Archer as much as anyone, but he was often doing things that should have been physically impossible etc. Here she is simply doing her fracking job. She is a PILOT flying a stealth ship, designed exactly for THIS PURPOSE, and doing so successfully. What is the problem here?

    Is she supposed tobe a complete fuck-up at eveything, even those things entailed in her military training? Would that make people happy? :vulcan:

    Re: Cylon POV Episode shelved!

    I'm sorry. It's really quite plausible when you think about it. But of all the people to stop the conflict, it is Starbuck that does it.

    I know that Admiral Cain would probably not listen to President Roslin anyway.

    By the way, I happen to like Starbuck. But she tends to be slightly on the unstable side. I suppose that with her childhood, it's understandable.

    In fact, I can even see how she might get promoted in a TREK Mirror Universe kind of way. Nothing beats success. So, even though Starbuck went against the orders of her CAG, I can see her getting promoted because her methods got results. So. the reward would not be for insubordination, but for the results that her actions brought.

    By the way, I also never hated Archer as a person. But Scott Bakula even said that Archer was a bit of a brat. He intentionally portrayed him that way.

    Starbuck is very human and the lords of Kobol have been exceedingly kind to her. They have graced her with beauty, physical agility, and intelligence. It is unfortunate that wisdom in interpersonal relationships is not one of those gifts. And it is my hope that as this series progresses, that we see her develop this wisdom.

    America (for the alternative to developing such wisdom is to be forever doomed to making the same mistakes over and over and over again)

    No, I suppose you're right. I suppose Starbuck is supposed to be a person who is extremely gifted in every area except her interpersonal relationships.

    While I would have preferred to have Roslin actually find a way to prevent the conflict between the two battlestars, it does simply make better sense that Starbuck would be able to stop this. Admiral Cain would probably not listen to anyone or anything else.

    America (It's like seasoning though. No one makes a meal out of cayenne pepper. I do not dispute that Starbuck is competent. But is she really the only one who is any good at anything and everything?)

    This is the most interesting tidbit in the summary. In Pegasus that guy Tyrol was talking with, the one that was conscripted from the civilian ship. I guess we just assumed he was rescued from a disabled civilian ship. Looks like Cain took people she could use on her Battlestar and let the other civilians get captured by the Cylons. This also explains why Cain was not giving the civilian fleet the supplies Roslin requested.

    Well since I am usually the last to find out about SPOILERS of any kind, and in going through the thread I did not see anything here ...surprisingly... Battlestar Wiki has posted spoilers on the two parter that will close out season 2. The articles are here:

    Lay Down Your Burdens Part 1

    and here:

    Lay Down Your Burdens Part 2

    EDIT: OF course after I posted this I found a post or two commenting on this...why would I think spoilers would be in episode order... :wtf: :lol: ...Enjoy :thumbsup:

    I wonder who Dean Stockwell will be playing. I don't know why but I hope he will be the One God that the cylons worship.

    America (I really like Dean Stockwell and I think he'd make a great One God.)

    Also, hugely detalied shot of the Cylon mothership; it's the "Resurrection Ship"; it looks like a big antenna;

    [​IMG]


    Of course this begs the question; where do they keep getting those new models?

    They didn't know what the new Raiders or new Basestars looked like, much less that Resurrection Ship.

    But now they've got little models of all of them, apparently.

    Whether it's real is yet to be seen, for one thing what is with all the blue in the pic?

    That has to be photoshopped.

    *EDIT*

    The culprit has been identified. A poster on the SCIFI boards with a long history of PS images (TheDigitalAlchemist) all but admitted to doing the job.

    Well yes, I think it fits the description: it's a "Resurrection Ship"; the Cylons use it to boost the signal when their "consciousness" is transfered from one copy to another. It probably enables them to transmit the consciousness of a Cylon all the way between the Cylon Fleet and the Cylon Homeworld. I would presume that without it:

    A) All Cylons in the human fleet stand a real chance of permanently dying if destroyed, because they can't transmit back (Personally, I think that the Leoben-copy really did die that one time, because it depends on how close Galactica is to the Resurrection Ship)
    B) The Cylon Fleet tracking Galactica (and other Basestars scattered about looking for them) would have their communication cut off with the Cylon Homeworld and their fleets occupying the Twelve Colonies (as seen in "Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II). Not that communication would be IMPOSSIBLE, just that they'd have to rely on Raiders to act as couriers, instead of instantaneous communication. This may lead to rifts and rivalries in their local hierarchy.

    I have no idea what the thing in the lower right is; could be another instance of the old' "use a freighter as a decoy" ploy, or it could be someone's hand in the shot.

    ^ "Weird ship" You mean the Cylon ship right, not A/R ? :p *Lol* :D
    Since I saw it first here, I should comment here. Just thought I'd pop in here first thing this morning, saw some activity in the spoiler Whore's thread, opened it up scrolled up and my heart nearly stopped. OMG. That whole scene including the other caps over at skiffy looks wonderful. I don't care if its a romantic one or not. I take it as a symbol of affection, caring and support (and a thankyou for just promoting me etc) and I LOVE IT. Totally made my morning. :angel: unfortunately the effect is somewhat wearing off as the day wears on but I'm carrying that image around with me for the rest of the day. :D
    At least it confirms that publicity photo on emedian.net.

    And SJ .. I'm surprised that the A/R lj didn't explode *lol* I just popped over and I've never seen so many posts on an LJ is so short a period of time. :thumbsup:

    I'm more interested by the fact that a military space-ship keeps using a two-dimensional map to plan strategies. No wonder the Cylons beat them. :p
