    Yeah, but that is how the "real left kook fringe" acts. I was waiting for the Cylon sympathizers to show up on the show. They were on the original series as well. Maybe we will see some old colonial hippies from the First Cylon War show up and start protesting again, to justify what they did back in Colonial College. They will be even more shrill than they were back then. This could be interesting. They could show how out of phase they are with the rest of colonial society in the fleet. They could even have a few whine that they will leave the fleet if Roslin gets elected President for a second term. Oh, and they could have a Lurch like guy running against Roslin chanting "Help is on the way". :guffaw:

    ^^Great theory. I hadn't looked at it from that perspective, and I think it's probably a really strong probability that sh uses it as yet another way of a) increasing Baltar's influence and credibility and b) manipulating him into doing something she wants. It certainly sounds like her MO.

    Okay, I've been out of touch for awhile, but I gotta ask:

    <span class="spoiler"><font class="small">Spoiler:</font><hr /><span>
    "Admiral" Adama? Has this happened on the actual show? When is he supposed to be promoted?

    Also, what is the Prometheus? Yet another battlestar they manage to stumble across? Or just another ship in the fleet?

    Ummm, Ron Moore. He implied it. Yes, they're going back and I doubt that Anders is a cylon. It's for Starbuck to be more feminine and have a "love interest." Sheesh. :rolleyes: Yes, I'm irritated that she suggested it but I'm far more irritated with David Eick for agreeing to it. Yes, they're irretrievably lost and drifting in space in despair from all that they've lost, but they can zip back to Caprica whenever they want for beer, tampons, and resistance fighters with big muscles who can't act worth a lick. What a dud of an idea. Anders a cylon? I wish. But I'm not counting on it happening, America. Love interest for Starbuck city. They're going back to Caprica so Starbuck can have a love interest.

    Ah, but he still might end up bering a cylon. And who knows? Maybe Kara will end up in the same boat as Helo, wondering how she ever fell in love with a cylon, hmmmmm?

    America (actually, I was just trying to cheer up Dorian) :)

    I know that Ron Moore implied that the actor would be back. I also know that he will probably be reprising the role of Anders. And I realize that this was at the request of Katie Saackhoff.

    But I also know this:

    1. From all appearances in the episode the Farm, the resistance cell was attacked, but only Kara and some of the women were actually captured.

    2. Doctor Simon, the doctor who Kara first saw when she woke up, told her that she had been carried in by Anders and that Anders had died. So, how did this doctor know Anders by name? And more importantly, how would he have known that Anders might have meant something to Kara?

    Yes, the attack might have been a coincidence and the cylons might have gotten lucky with the capture of Starbuck. But everything about the attack screams intentional and pre-planned ambush. For that to have happened, the cylons needed inside information.

    Of course, later on, Doctor Simon messed up by calling her Starbuck instead of Kara and of course, that is how she knew that Simon was a cylon. But what I don't understand is how they knew Ander's name.

    Then, there was that statement from Sharon that maybe they would put Kara with someone she liked. The look on Kara's face when Sharon said that was like: There's no way I'd ever fall for a cylon.

    Kara has been openly vocal about her disapproval of Helo's relationship with Cylon Sharon.

    So, it would be really ironic if Kara finds out that she is pregnant with Ander's baby and also that Anders is a cylon.

    America (and this is why I suspect that Ron Moore would do exactly that)

    Quite possible that the resistance was captured by the Cylons as well.
    Remember Anders mentioned that the cylons were 'cleaning up Caprica' as if there was some plan they had for the city.
    Plus with all the Cylons efforts to create true hybrids, somehow I don't think the Anders we'll see next time will be the same we saw earlier.
    Something about this storyline is ringing a bell in the back of my mind but I can't for the life of me recall or even pinpoint what it is that seems so familiar.
    Anybody else out there feel the same.

    If they do that, I'm out. Period. Not everyone with a fucking uterus needs to end up pregnant! Sheesh.

    Plus, given Kara's sexual history, one would hope that she has a fairly good handle on birth control methods, and I would also guess that a civilization with advanced tech would also have highly effective BC. If no, then my respect for the character goes out the door.

    Re: Spoiler whore's thread! (enter at your own ris

    Here's my theory:

    After the Pegasus episode(s) it becomes obvious that Adama is a better at commanding the fleet than Evil-Admiral-From-Hell Cain is/was. So Roslin promotes him to Admiral, thus ensuring that he stays in command if they encounter any more surviving battlestars with Evil Admirals/Commanders From Hell.

    It makes sense - but IMHO "Commander Adama" sounds a lot cooler than "Admiral Adama." But that's just my opinion.

    I dunno. Maybe. Maybe not. But whenever the Cylon/Human hybrids are brought up, the first thing that I think of are the Alien/Human hybrids from The X-Files.

    Yes, but first, he has to time travel back to Kobol in a stolen Cylon Basestar to pick up a pair of humpback whales. :D :p

    Does she have the authority to do that? She's not a member of the military, so how can she issue promotions? I had always assumed that (IRL, anyway) all promotions had to come from the top brass of the actual military branch of the individual being promoted.

    Even assuming that, as in most real life nations, the president is the C-in-C of the Colonial military, I wasn't aware that this meant they could also issue promotions.

    *shrugs*

    Well, who else is going to promote him? He can't promote himself, and Cain is definitely not going to do it. They'll probably bend a few rules, but it's not as if anyone in the fleet is going to object. Either that or Adama becomes "Acting-Admiral."

    Well I am pretty sure the colonies had very reliable BC, and I do not think they will do a pregnant Starbuck storyline this early.
    An interesting question is do they have reliable BC in the fleet?
    I am sure both Galactica and the cruiseships had some in storage, plus the personal stock of the passengers.
    However considering a lot of the passengers have no real job to do, the lack of recreational facilities and human nature I would assume they are going to be out of BC pretty quickly.
    And while they have refinery ships and some such, I do not think that they have a jump capable condom factory somewhere in the fleet.
    Thoughts?

    Abstinence. Abstinence and manual operation would be effective birth control methods if the cupboards are bare of BC products. :angel:
