RDM: Hello and welcome to the podcast I'nm Ronald D. Moore developer and executive producer of the new Battlestar Galactica and I'm joined here by my lovely wife, the lovely and talented Mrs. Ron. Say, "Hello," Mrs. Ron.

Terry: Hello Mrs. Ron

RDM: And we're here to discuss part one of the season finale, Crossroads Part I, which we call episode 18 around these parts.

Terry: I'm here again because Ron is now doing these in bed at 11 o'clock at night-

RDM: Yes-

Terry: In a state of exhaustion. And uh-So-

RDM: I hope-

Terry: I'm-I'll probably be pretty quiet too.

RDM: The smoking lamp is again out, but the scoth is Urgegragor 10 from-single malt from the Highlands.

Terry: There has been a question as to what is your favorite Scotch.

RDM: That's a hard question to answer, Talasker is one of my favorites. Jeru, that new one I got from that professor at USC. This new one came from John Hodgman who was here last night.

Terry: Mr. PC.

RDM: Mr. PC from the Apple commercials.

Terry: Ok, let's get into it. This is Crossroads Part I. In case you're wondering, no we did not forget to put the pre-cap on that says, "The Cylons Were Created By Man," etc. etc. Truth is we were pressed for time on these last two and we asked for special dispensation to do away with the pre-cap, as we call it, and also with the main title. So-to give us-in order to give us more time to tell the story and really play this for all it's worth. This sequence back at the opera house which we've seen before, the Kobol Opera house, was a very late edition to the script. I took a pass at the finale fairly late in the process, while we were in prep. I added this section and some other pieces that we'll talk about as they come along.

Terry: This is so spooky.

RDM: It's very spooky. It's very, "Don't Look Now," the Nicolas Roeg picture in a lot of these shots and very creepy and very effective. I like a lot of this a lot. Originally, we had always known that we wanted to do the trial of Gaius Baltar this season. It had originally was going to take place around episode 12 or 13 after the escape from the algae planet. Then as time went on we started talking about what the season finale was going to be and I started to getting more and more in love with the idea that the finale was going to be the trial of Gaius Baltar. That took a little bit of salesmanship actually with the network. The network was not entirely that we would-that a trial episode was really the best way to end the season. But I was really sold on it and then went back to the writers room and said "Ok, we really have to deliver because they're definitely skeptical this time about our ability to pull this off." So as-so we developed this long art that was going to culminate in this long art that was going to culminate in the trial, that I talked about before. With the Sagittarons becoming a problem in the fleet that's where the Helo, The Woman King episode originated. <3:03>
