Regarding the Caprican Facilities

We don't know if they existed....in fact, the only comments we've gotten regarding Boomer's specific Resurrection imply that it was actually on a resurrection ship assigned to the tweleve colonies. And if she, who died months after the attack, did not resurrect in a facility, I doubt there was any on the planet....--Sauron18 21:06, 17 October 2006 (CDT)

There's still the matter of the numerous downloads on New Caprica. The "where" is still in question, and Resurrection Ships are pretty large to hide... :) --Spencerian 21:41, 17 October 2006 (CDT)
The ship only needs to be somewhere in the solar system and not really in orbit of the planet. We know that at least several other planets are in the same system as Caprica; possibly all. But all ever see is Caprica. For all we know it could be in orbit of, let's say, Aerelon and the signal run time is - just inventing a number here - one hour. --Serenity 07:17, 18 October 2006 (CDT)
I agree. But it has to be close. I'm sorry if the article implies that they have to be near. There's nothing yet to suggest that resurrections happen only on Resurrection Ships (assuming there's more than one), so something's up here. Could be an BW:OC question, but Ngarenn has been very quiet (and likely very busy). --Spencerian 15:33, 18 October 2006 (CDT)
Btw, I noticed you talked about New Caprica there, while I thought this was about Old Caprica, so to speak. Obviously there is only one planet at New Caprica, but there could have been a RS somewhere in the Twelve Colonies system. But I think assuming that the resurrection of Boomer and Six took place on the planet iself is equally valid. And it makes more sense for them to build a planet-bound facility there than on New Caprica. --Serenity 15:41, 18 October 2006 (CDT)
Actually, Ngarenn did confirm that Resurrection happened either on a Resurrection ship or on a Resurrection Facility on the colonies [1](not in the homeworld). So this leaves it ambiguous. However, we know Caprica Six was reorn in the Ship (too soon for facilities), and according to Grace Park, "boomer is resurrected in a ship" [2].
So basically, Ngarenn said that Resurrection in the 12 Colonies was either on a Resurrection Ship or on a Facility on the planets (Not Homeworld). We know Six was reborn in a ship, and only Boomer was ambiguous, until Grace told us she was reborn in a ship. So this means, in my opinion, that resurrections in the 12 col. were taken care of by a Resurrection Ship somewhere in the system.
And I am talking about the 12 Col. here. New Caprica is probably the same, but we only know factually of the 12 Col. which is the info presented above :p--Sauron18 15:48, 18 October 2006 (CDT)

I've been wondering - in Rapture the implication to me in Rapture was that Athena downloaded to the Basestar that Hera was on. Do folks think that she downloaded to an unseen resurrection ship and then got over to the Basestar somehow? Meatwad 12:24, 16 April 2007 (CDT)

She downloaded to a Resurrection Ship, which was focused on by the camera before we saw her in the tank. If Basestars could resurrect Cylons, Resurrection Ships would be unnecessary. -- Noneofyourbusiness 11:46, 6 November 2007 (CST)

Star Wars "Dark Empire" similarities

In the "Dark Empire" Star Wars comics, Palpatine repeatedly cheats death by transferring his consciousness into clones of his body. The Cylon resurrection process strikes me as similar. ZeldaTheSwordsman 20:57, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Non-Significant Eight bodies?

I have a question (series).

Ellen Tigh was resurrected shortly after her death on New Caprica, in her body (not another model's). In order for this to make sense, Cavil had to have secretly kept a copy of her body (and presumably those of the other Final Five) since the First Cylon War.

Furthermore, Kara Thrace seems to have been resurrected before the destruction of the Resurrection Hub. (We don't even know if she's a Cylon; I think there's a good chance she's a half-Cylon, but that only adds to the confusion.) We don't know whether half-Cylons can be resurrected, as there's been so few and we're not sure Thrace is half-Cylon (or any part Cylon) or not anyway, but [i]if[/i] she is, this means:

1) Half-Cylons can be resurrected. 2) How/why did someone keep a copy of her body lying around? (If she's a half-Cylon, it seems this would have been a secret to the Cylons.) 3) Does this leave any hope for Liam Tigh? (Probably not.) Kimera757 15:44, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
