Talk:The Heavens Will Rise
Another user had asked in the Questions section if the unseen medical practitioner named Cottle was a young Sherman Cottle. I changed that question to ask if the two are related. As we know from the end of "Appotheosis", the future Admiral Adama wasn't even born until a year or more after "The Heavens will Rise". Meanwhile, the unseen Cottle is a physician - and presumably an experienced one, based upon Amanda's confidence in him. That makes the unseen Cottle a minimum of twenty - maybe far more than twenty - years older than Adm. Adama, which Sherman certainly is not.
