The One True God

I was wondering, was it ever established on BSG where the notion of the existence of a One True God ever came from, or is that a lingering question that Caprica might still answer?

Like, who was the first person who believed in the existence of a OTG? --ManofTheAtom 14:24, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Not yet. -- Noneofyourbusiness 14:40, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
I doubt we'll see the specific origin. Just like in reality, the belief in a singular god can't really be traced back beyond a general time frame, even then, based only on archival data. It's got to be an idea that sprung forth from people trying to grasp onto an understanding of life and the universe, shedding old ideas in hopes of a better way, and can't be pinpointed anymore accurately than the idea of gods in general. --Mars 23:12, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
The original character description for Sister Clarice before the Pilot was released mentioned "the results of her studies into the scriptures", but that's not canon yet. -- Noneofyourbusiness 23:21, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
I remember that Elosha made a reference to a jealous God on Kobol who led to the eventual exodus from that planet. Hopefully that will be explored more deeply on Caprica. At one point it was assumed that the Temple of Five had been built by the Final Five, but now that we know that was not so, it leaves the question of who the five priests who worshiped "the one whose name cannot be spoken" really were. That's another question I hope Caprica answers. --ManofTheAtom 02:44, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
That was a deleted scene. Strange how everyone remembers that one. -- Noneofyourbusiness 04:13, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
It helps that this site keeps a record of it, lol. Sometimes when I read the sentence from those pages on this site I do feel like I actually saw it on screen. Maybe the version of the episode that aired were I am had the scene. I just can't remember, it's been awhile.--ManofTheAtom 13:44, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Or you saw it in the DVD deleted scenes collection? -- Noneofyourbusiness 14:34, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
I don't have the DVDs :)--ManofTheAtom 14:35, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Cast list

Anyone have the names from the closing credits? I could usually decipher them from the Battlestar Galactica airings (with some help from educated guessing), but one of the additional changes that came when they switched to "Syfy" is they crunched the credits even more, so I cannot make out any name. Nothing. Is there anyone who has the unobscured version and would like to share? --Mars 23:12, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree. It would also help out in the pretty lacking cats Category:Credits which has two for TOS and a couple more for RDM. I'm hoping we won't have to wait for the DVD release in order to properly read the credits.--DrWho42 18:07, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
You know, someone actually uploaded the closing credit sequence for this episode (for the preview of the next episode) to YouTube, and I could surprisingly read the credits better (or at least enough to correlate it to names/positions from the pilot and IMDb). However, I was dumbfounded when Syfy actually bollixed up by having the preview/credit crammed into the window reserved for the credits. Needless to say, I didn't even bother trying to squint on that one and while they corrected this for subsequent broadcast, unfortunately, someone uploaded the original to YouTube (if there's a version of the latter, please point the way). I think I can get away with this since I've proven to be a legitimate member here and so this cannot misconstrued as spamming, but I'm the editor for both Caprica and RDM at TVRage, so as an important part of the guide is supplying credits among other info, not being able to lay eyes on an easy-to-see list of closing cast and crew is a pain in my ass! --Mars 22:19, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Twin Peaks reference

While having not seen the show (I've seen David Lynch's movies), my friend Blue cadet84 said the video of Lacy and Zoe is a reference to Twin Peaks. Is there director commentary or anything to confirm this?--DrWho42 20:37, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Chinatown in Caprica City?

Why were the producers so sloppy as to show some sort of Chinatown in Caprica City? We know colonials don't care about race, they only care about your colony of origin. It's possible there are entire neighbourhoods of Tauron immigrants, but why would they all be Asian when we know Taurons are as ethnically diverse as any other colony? Why do they have Asian characters on their shops, are they supposed to be "Old Tauronese" (the language the gangsters sometimes use) because I was under the impression English, with the Latin script, was the standard language of all the colonies?

Incompetent GDD

Why doesn't GDD keep an eye on Rand? Tapping her phone alone would crack the case wide open. Doesn't she appear on the security footage at the Lev station?
