Citing issue

There is a problem with "Go Between, Inc.". Understandably they don't keep the data forever. Searching for "battlestar" now only yields results for "Six of One". The data for "Razor" and this episode is gone. So the cite is kinda pointless. --Serenity 15:01, 13 June 2007 (CDT)

Ran into something like this with New Caprican loco weed ... the Sci-Fi thread where some of the "Also known as" names came from disappeared. Maybe we should note in the cite "info no longer available"? JubalHarshaw 15:04, 13 June 2007 (CDT)
Better to remove the cite if we can't back it up (and delete the article, if necessary). --Peter Farago 00:44, 14 June 2007 (CDT)
Deleting the article because the cite isn't available anymore, would be an overreaction though. All other BSG sites still list this (even if we have more stringent citation standards). I'd prefer somehow indicating that the site isn't available anymore. --Serenity 01:25, 14 June 2007 (CDT)
I agree with Serenity, but of course I'm an inclusionist. The data did exist. Perhaps there is a Google cache (or other website cache) of it still available. I notice the date it was retrieved is part of the cite, I think that is a good thing. JubalHarshaw 07:21, 14 June 2007 (CDT)
If it's still in the Google cache, we could copy it to Sources:Go Between or something like that. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 09:52, 14 June 2007 (CDT)
Keeping in mind we're not a news source, perhaps it would be better to make a screen capture of such information to make a permanent source copy on BS Media that cannot expire. The capture as well as the tenuous article sourcing can be removed later once we get more firm sourcing. --Spencerian 11:15, 14 June 2007 (CDT)
That would be feasible. Unless someone has a better idea, that might be the best. --Serenity 11:24, 14 June 2007 (CDT)
Excellent idea. --Peter Farago 22:26, 14 June 2007 (CDT)

Update

Mark Verheiden reports on his blog that David Weddle and Bradley Thompson are writing this episode. I've updated the article accordingly. Also, he reports that officially the production numbers for Razor are 401 and 402, and Season 4, Episode 1 is going to be 403. --Freevo 10:51, 18 August 2007 (CDT)

I don't think writers need to be cited, though we can add a footnote if anyone feels the need. I'll add the production number, though seeing this as episode 1 of Season 4 still makes sense. Production numbers can be very confusing. --Serenity 10:52, 18 August 2007 (CDT)
Currently, 400 and 4.00 redirect to Razor, and 401 and 4.01 redirect to He That Believeth In Me, a system that I think is more logical than the production numbers. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 12:33, 18 August 2007 (CDT)
Agreed. We just need to keep production and episode numbers apart. --Serenity 12:40, 18 August 2007 (CDT)

Space Park Damaged etc

Er, sorry but wheres the citation to support this spoiler? The only thing i've seen that would represent this, is a fan made trailer circulated around youtube, which featured the Battlestars Titan and Hades...whilst well done, everything barring some leaked footage of starbuck, is done entirely on a home computer by the looks of it...so i say again, where did this spoiler appear from? --Fordsierra4x4 23:17, 31 January 2008 (CST)

Here. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 05:47, 1 February 2008 (CST)
I dont like the way this season is going...i wasn't particularly enamoured with the whole 'final 5' story either...oh well, i guess they just ran out of steam :( --Fordsierra4x4 16:01, 9 February 2008 (CST)

SciFi ep?

I am currently on the West Coast and it's 12:02pm, yet I cannot find anywhere on the SciFi website where the episode is streaming. It says it is there, but I don't see a link. Any ideas?Bstone 19:03, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

It was 12pm EDT and 9am PST :( Shane (talk) 19:06, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Callsigns

Diana Seelix and Sam Anders' callsigns are mentioned as "Longshot" and "Hardball", I just can't figure out which is which. Anyone know what's what? -- Noneofyourbusiness 02:09, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't recall hearing those callsigns, but Seelix has been confirmed as Hardball since as far back as October. --Mars 02:44, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
"Longshot" isn't Anders' callsign... He mixed up the callsigns when he was trying to cover Tally... The video for the entire episode is here if you want to check it out. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 02:49, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Oh. Now I've got that. The first two times I must have thought that "Tally" was jargon. He must have one, of course. Where does "Hotshot" come from? -- Noneofyourbusiness 03:57, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Now someone entered that Athena called Anders "C-Buck" on his article. That can only happen during their scene on the hangar deck, but I don't hear anything like that. She says. "Hey rook. Stay cool out there, alright. You'll lock on/in and do what you've been trained to do. Come on." -- Serenity 12:49, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I was listening out for callsigns and the like. I have never heard "C-Buck" once in the episode... The only time that "C-Bucks" ever come up is way back in "Exodus". -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 14:59, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Wait, "tally" *is* pilot jargon. What makes us so sure that it's a callsign? -- Noneofyourbusiness 02:10, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

I am still listen to the episode sound. I recorded that section so I can play it back over and over and I am trying to take out the ambient noise. I will let you know what I come up with. (This is what having a powerfull computer can do!) Shane (talk) 02:20, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Because he clearly corrects himself after saying the first callsign... -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 02:22, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok. I have listened to it. After further review I hear "Longshot, Tally. I got your back". Directly afterwards I can hear crystal clear that Anders says "Selix, you got a raider on your back." So going back to how sub sections communicate, "Conn. Weapons. Estimated time to 1SQ is 15 mintues." (From Crimson Tide) Shane (talk) 02:56, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Here's what I heard of the wireless exchange between Seelix and Anders:
Seelix: Longshot, Hardball ... turkey right four low at three ... committing.
Anders: Longshot, I got uh ... Tally! I've got your back.
IMO, the conversation goes
Seelix: Longshot (Anders), [this is] Hardball (Seelix) ... turkey (Raider) right four low at three ... committing (engaging).
Anders: Longshot, I got uh (he is either identifying himself, or winces because he realizes he just called Seelix by his own callsign and/or has trouble assembling proper fighter shorthand) ... Tally (I see your target)! I've got your back.
So I'd put my hat into Longshot being Anders's callsign. If there is indeed a third pilot with the callsign "Tally", you'd figure the pilot would have acknowledged over wireless.-- Fredmdbud 03:15, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, you've convinced me. Yeah, seems that "Longshot" is his callsign. Although, I would personally like more definitive proof before we proceed on that assumption, which shouldn't be a problem in the future episodes that are coming up. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 03:22, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Besides, what's the point in giving someone a callsign ("Tally") that is identical to the popular jargon word used by pilots every now and then? It could cause some serious misunderstanding in the heat of a battle, which is usually fatal. I tend to agree with Joe's explanation. -- Spike 03:46, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
The explanation is Fred's, actually, not mine. Anyway, in regards to the whole "Longshot" thing, we should really play the wait-and-see approach and see if it comes up again in a future episode. Frankly, I don't feel that comfortable in what Anders has to say, particularly since his mind's not in the game, not to mention his lack of experience in general. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 03:53, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Seelix seemed in the game. Spike's quite right, giving the callsign "Tally" to someone could cause a fatal error. Too bad that we don't know if Anders will be back in the cockpit soon. He seems to go onboard that other ship from rumors/spoilers, the Demetrius. -- Noneofyourbusiness 04:06, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
And "Longshot" just seems to make sense, with him being a professional Pyramid player and all.-- OrionFour 04:15, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
