Starbuck's expression

I just re-watched the last scene, I'm fairly sure that Kara's smirking, she's the only one in the scene who doesn't seem disappointed. -- Gordon Ecker 22:45, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Neither does Tyrol, apparently. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 23:00, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
Tyrol is clearly chuckling to himself; Starbuck to me looks like she has her mouth pursed as part of an overall expression of concern.--Hylas 23:15, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't think he was "chuckling" to himself out of humor, but in a cynical "of course it would turn out this way..." attitude. Rueful, just like when he was taken to the launch tube and he looks at Tigh and smiled because he knew Tigh gave them up. He smiled at Anders in a similar fashion because he knew that Tigh gave them up even then. On Earth Tyrol just had a non committal attitude because he is already cynical as hell probably thinking of the absurdity of the situation. Starbuck had somewhat the same attitude especially with the "harbinger of death" prophecy ringing in her head. Hunter2005 09:48, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Goof

In the scene in CIC where Felix gets up to retrieve the pills he knocked over, you can briefly see the shadow of his 'missing' leg and foot (tucked up behind him) cast on the floor just between him and his chair. . . oops! Centurion 51773 09:37, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Yep, big oops. Or is it a shadow from his Virtual Leg? :P -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 10:05, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. Gaeta's leg is definitely the final Cylon. -- Serenity 13:26, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, other than Baltar's Baltar, nobody else has a virtual self, so I think it's more likely that Gaeta has a virtual Tigh's leg. . . (Actually an eye disguised as a leg. Cylon projection. Wink wink nudge nudge.) :D Centurion 51773 14:54, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

I believe that's already mentioned on our continuity errors page. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 10:49, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
So it is. Hadn't seen it. Here I thought I was being clever. Frak! ;DCenturion 51773 13:08, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Temple of Aurora Mistake

I see that there's an ongoing mistake with the Temple of Aurora picture. Lee is looking at the picture of the Opera House on Kobol. Starbuck walks over and says it's the Temple of Aurora, but as she does so you can see Lee turning the page over. You catch a very brief glimpse of the image he is looking at: an open square structure inside a much larger chamber. It 100% resembles the structure at the end of Revelations. However, I keep seeing that people think the Opera House and the Temple of Aurora are one and the same and it's an error, which it isn't. It's actually slightly mistimed editing.--Werthead 00:34, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Having rewatched my digital copy, I can see that you're correct. Lee does turn the page to what appears to be the structure on Earth in "Revelations", at least to an extent... What extent, I'm not entirely sure though, because, again, the picture that we see on closeup before panning upward towards Thrace is the exact same page used to depict the depiction of the Opera House on Kobol in Season 1 and 2. Which casts doubt on the intentions of that scene. It could be a simple editing mistake, or it could very well be an attempt to remove all reference to that page for some reason we don't yet know. While I'm up in Vancouver, I'll figure out what the frak is up with it, because that scene—and the sudden introduction of this so-called Temple—rankles my researching ass, personally. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 02:24, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
I changed the note on the Aurora page to make it more clear where the real picture is. And I uploaded the picture above to BSWiki. It's now linked to in the same note. -- Serenity 13:22, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

nyc? really?

i think the city shown at the end is sydney, look at pictures of it. that would make sense of the whole roslin/athena/hera/six/baltar operahouse vision. ya'know, the sydney operahouse! -- Popon 23:17, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Your speculation is about as valid at this point as anyone else's. And trying to pinpoint it to any one specific place would kind of take away from the basic visceral impact to each viewer — "That could be *my* city."-- Fredmdbud 00:57, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Biers?

Is there a reason why the Three in this episode is referred to as Biers? It seems like it would make more sense to refer to her as Number Three, but was she called that in the episode or something. I didn't want to just change it because it's been so long since I saw the episode.

She's often referred to as D'Anna, which is short for D'Anna Biers, although the reporter was almost certainly a different instance, so... -- Noneofyourbusiness 08:18, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Also the fact that she is the only Number Three left in the universe, and a particular one at that.-- Fredmdbud 18:26, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
