It wasn't anything like 50 billion, silly.
Wow, Stargate meets BSG and Voyager XD
Battlestar Wiki reads, "estimated 50 billion." So, yeah, it was.
I'm hopefully optimistic, mainly because John Scalzi is the creative consultant, and since I love his books I hope that he can provide a new point of view for SGU.
I can go for darker storylines, but I have trouble with the shaky cam. I don't like motion sickness while sitting on my couch.
Didn't Starbuck or someone on the show say like 50 billion?
12 planets, how many people do you think are on each planet? Say it's only 2 billion, that's still 24 billion people dead.
I think Tigh mentioned the number of dead in the Resistance webisodes, but it was surely mentioned in the series, too. I just don't remember by who.
And I just saying that I saw some similarities, that's all.
I think it comes from an episode where Starbuck is getting pissed by Gaeta's bitching, just before his mutiny. She says something like "50 billion people are dead, but the universe has to cry over Felix Gaeta losing a leg."
Hopefully the crew won't declare technology to be evil and toss the Destiny into the sun in the last episode.
We should not sacrifice Stargate. We've made too many compromises already. Too many retreats.
Stargate assimilates entire shows and we fall back. They copied Voyager and we fell back. Now they look like they will copy BSG.
Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far! No further!
Agreed. They even have their own Baltar, "for crying out loud!"
Anyway, what really set Stargate SG-1 apart from Atlantis and the new upcoming series was that it was based on Earth. I have a feeling that without Earth being in the picture so rarely that it's going to be hard to really "get into it."
So no visits to the medieval-craft-fair village set in the woods most every week then?
Pfft yeah and she was always right, right? If one little bit of Caprica had dozens of resistance fighters then I guess quite a few survived all over the colonies.
It was mentioned in The Resistance, too, by Tigh. But it seems silly to argue over this, so, whatever.
I'm glad someone liked that post...
Yes, I watched the final episode. I said as much in the part of my quote that you didn't quote. And, no, I don't consider humanity giving up all of its technology and scattering to the four winds to revert back to barbarism a heartening end to the series. Plus, the robot montage at the very end — 150,000 years after Galactica arrived on our Earth — was somewhat corny.
**LOL** This just inspired me to go out and purchase the Blu-ray version of "Star Trek: First Contact."
That's true, to a point. I did admire the Adamas, Galen Tyrol and Kat (I think that was her name ... the fighter pilot who died guiding the fleet through the region of space filled with radiation). Tigh, too, to a certain degree.
Never did like Starbuck or most of the others, though. Gaeta was OK until he started losing his mind and rebelled.
Eh. I've watched and read plenty of other material to know that everyone reacts differently to loss. nBSG focused a lot on the darkness and pretty much thrived on it. The ending didn't leave me feeling at all heartened, either.
For all of its critical acclaim, nBSG never took off with the mainstream audience. I believe part of it had to do with the dark nature of the show. Another part of it probably had to do with the fact that when it comes to the words "science fiction," people have preconceived notions of it, thus unfairly impacting such SF material right out of the chute.
