Talk:Home, Part II

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

Again, information from:

I held off any further details since nothing else is really known; it's not even strictly confirmed that Home Part II follows Home Part I, but it would make sense, especially taking into account the Kobol's Last Gleaming I/II from season one. Kuralyov 16:04, 18 May 2005 (EDT)

Episode Title

ON Sci-Fi Battlestar site there is this episode called Home, Part 2 . What does it mean? Did anyone meationed that? --Pavel Ptáček 06:28, 21 Aug 2005 (EDT)

EPISODE TITLE IS NOT "The Raid" IT IS "Home, part II". I don't know how to change an episode title. I hope someone else does. But the official Battlestar site on is calling the upcoming episode "Home, Part II". This needs to be changed.---Ricimer, 22 Aug, 2005

Article Title Changed Per Official Site

Confirmed the episode title change. I've moved the page. Any links to "The Raid" should be redirected to "Home, Part II." Any use of "Home, Part I" are still redirected to "Home" as before, but the title difference there is not significant and you can use either in articles. Spencerian 15:45, 23 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Episode Summary

Where's the episode summary for this one? --Steelviper 08:53, 26 January 2006 (EST)

Nevermind. Thanks Spencerian! That was quick! --Steelviper 13:17, 8 February 2006 (EST)


The following was obviously a joke, like one of dozens of others that RDM has made in podcast, and not worth mentioning: "*In the podcast for this episode, both Ronald D. Moore and David Eick hint that Helo is a Cylon agent. However, it seems likely that they are joking".

Cygnus arm

"*Since Lee and Cmdr. Adama both recognized the Lagoon Nebula, and the nebula appears the same as it does from Earth, the Colonies must be located on a line that passes through Sol and the Lagoon Nebula. This would place the Colonies - and Kobol - in the Cygnus Arm of the galaxy.--Just to point out, you found that info on regular Wikipedia, and it was actually me (back when I was known as Ricimer) who wrote that: I mean it's an educated guess as I believe in it based on the evidence, but I'm no astrophysics expert. Just in case you saw this somewhere else and said "this must be fact", well, I didn't put it here because I thought it was kind of shaky. --The Merovingian (C - E) 14:54, 4 April 2006 (CDT)

Doc Cottle has a pottymouth

When Cottle's doing his scan of Baltar, and Six makes him move the first time, Cottle says, quite clearly, "Oh, fuck." --BklynBruzer 18:53, 22 September 2006 (CDT)

No, he says "Oh, fo...." like in "Oh for gods' sake", but he stops pretty much right after the "f" making it sounds like a very quiet "fuck" --Serenity 07:33, 23 September 2006 (CDT)
I listened to it 5 times on headphones, clearly hearing the "ck" at the end. I'm 100% sure he said fuck. --BklynBruzer 10:33, 23 September 2006 (CDT)
I never once thought he said fuck until i read this. I still think he just paused before finishing rather than actually swearing --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 03:18, 4 October 2006 (CDT)
Of course he didn't say "oh, fuck". Not only would the actor and director have picked upon that during the shoot, but it wouldn't even make sense in the context. He clearly cut off from saying something like "Oh, for fraks sake". Debate closed. (jxh487)
Could you try being politer? This is a genuine debate and you are not the end-all be-all of Galactica lines. --BklynBruzer 18:42, 5 October 2006 (CDT)
No, you're right. I'm not, infact I made a mistake (supposedly) about the ...erm... "boomer" said what??? debate over at the websode talk page. I swear he says "Laura told me" (jxh487)
FWIW, the phoneme /k/ is realized as voiceless, un-aspirated [k] in word-final position, as is the phoneme /g/ in word-initial position. Thus, it would be trivial to confuse "fuck" and "for g-" - the only phonetic difference is in the vowel. --Peter Farago 20:25, 5 October 2006 (CDT)

Using a Compass?

During the teaser, we see them using a compass while looking for the Tomb of Athena. How can they be sure that, being on a foreign planet with unknown magnetic properties, that the compass will work the way they need it to? -- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ctetc2007 (talk • contribs).

It's a conceit. Or the implication is that Kobol also has a magnetic north and a magnetic south, which could be possible as well. We don't know either way. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 19:33, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Without a clear map, a compass is of little help. Even on an alien world, however, it could be used to help maintain a constant bearing, which can prevent getting lost in a forest and help you find your way back to the ship. Dogger55 08:35, 30 June 2011 (EDT)
There is that as well. (Assuming no other major magnetic fields are present.) Then again, compasses do work in British Columbia, so they must work on every planet that looks like it... ;-) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 09:39, 30 June 2011 (EDT)
