Talk:Dreilide Thrace

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

While I am new to the WIKI, I have been a fan of the show from day one. It seems with this most recent episode, the dots are being connected. Has anyone theorized that her father is actually Daniel, the number 7, and the Kara is the first human/cylon child? Posit the following:

1) Mother was abusive 2) Mother impressed on her she was special 3) She was born around the same time as Anders, Tyrol, Galen, and Tori. 4) The final five were put on the colonies to "teach them a lesson" by the Cavil's, could the same be true for Daniel 5) He is an artist, creative, a piano player 6) Kara knew the song, and the symbol, meaning it was impressed on her at a young age

This is something I hope is clarified in the last few episodes.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Caseon (talk • contribs).

Welcome, Caseon. Don't forget to sign your posts with ~~~~. I too am hoping the issue is clarified. Also, we generally try to use talk pages strictly for issues related to improving the page, rather than forum-like discussion, but any speculation, theorizing, and general socializing are always welcome on the Battlestar Forum. Great contribution and hope to see you around more! JubalHarshaw 17:12, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Name change

I definitely agree with the idea of renaming the page "Dreilide Thrace" ... pretty obviously his name. JubalHarshaw 17:12, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Was the name visible within the episode, or did anyone say his name? (I can't remember, have to watch it again.) Anyway, it would be "Dreilid" and not "Dreilide", which would be plural. (Trust me, German is my native language.) ;-) BTW: The meaning of the word "Lied" is "song". Probably no coincidence. --Janjan 09:20, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
The name was on the tape that Kara got from Helo. "Dreilide Thrace Live at the Helice Opera House" --Steelviper 03:43, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
I find the explanation about the third eyelid strange. Where does this come from? As a native german speaker, I, too, found the analogy to "Lied" - meaning 'song' much more obvious and logical, for he's supposed to be a composer. That would make his name meaning "three songs". I think this should be mentioned in the article, as a second explanation - unless someone has hard evidence, that the writers realy meant "eyelid". --Trent Easton 14:13, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
I believe the writers may have meant the "three songs" over the whole "eyelid" thing. I've always found the notation strange as well, but not really enough to remove it from the article. I say make the change. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 17:00, 12 November 2010 (UTC)


Since the podcast from Someone ot watch over me stated that "slick" was in fact an image of Kara's father shouldn't we add an image of him to the article? )Oh I'm also a bit new to editing this wiki but not new to the site. Aeon1006 23:46, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Slick as a Virtual being?

I see people are assuming that Slick was a form of projection, eluding to the belief that Kara is the 7th Cylon Daniel. But is it possible that Slick is instead a Virtual being like Virtual Caprica Six, Virtual Gaius etc,. ?? Should this speculation be included in the article?
