Scifi.com is now calling this episode "Sacrifices", plural. Could this be a typo (it's only on one page), or is the name actually different? --Ricimer 17:24, 4 February 2006 (EST)

Moore called it "Sacrifice" in the singular in the podcast. Let's leave it be until Friday. --Peter Farago 17:25, 4 February 2006 (EST)
As do all other textual references on the site. Must have been a typo. --The Merovingian 22:10, 10 February 2006 (EST)


Good job on this page all, It takes a lot to impress me, and I think you guys did well......... Wow a blue car! Bane Grievver 21:43, 12 February 2006 (EST)

Not that this has any bearing...

But the death of Billy was really sad. Billy was a great chaecter. I was hoping just for shots that skinned him; Not kill him. --Shane 00:08, 14 February 2006 (EST)

No. Billy became a bad character, through lack of use. By this point in the series, past the end of season 1, he had gotten so little to do that it wasn't worth counting him amongst the main cast. Frankly, RDM did the right thing by killing him off, thus giving him a fitting sendoff rather than let him become painfully boring (a problem encountered on later Star Treks alot). I was happy to see him go, while I also felt that it was a good death scene.--The Merovingian 16:24, 14 February 2006 (EST)

Maybe... :( It was good death scene. No showing of him dieing in the lounge, but just showing up in the morge. --Shane 14:11, 15 February 2006 (EST)

It may be worth putting a little paragraph or two in the notes section describing the circumstances surrounding the lack of use of the character (i.e that the actor was being offered other series or pilots). The RDM podcast sums it up pretty well. --Rexpop 19:05, 14 February 2006 (EST)


I assume that could go in "Analysis" instead of notes--The Merovingian 19:19, 14 February 2006 (EST)

I noticed something that might be important, probably not though.

Did anyone else notice that one of the terrorists was the same actor that played the captain in Flesh and Bone. If this wasn't just a casting mistake than it means one of two things; one, that the captain of the Gemenon Traveller is dead now (this one doesn't really mean very much except that he's dead), and two that the captain of the Gemenon Traveller is not dead and that was infact another copy of him and he is a Cylon. I'll be the first one to say how unconceivable this is just by the fact that both episodes involved a cylon. It would stand to reason that the cylons wouldn't have more than one sleeper agent of each model so as to avoid confusion and suspicion. So with that in mind no more than one of the "Eric Breker" cylons (that's the actor in both episodes) could be a sleeper agent, and my money would be on the Gemenon Traveller captain. Anyways, that's my peice, it's in your court now. --FIDS 02:49, 6 March 2006 (CST)

I don't think this is important. They've just using the same pool of minor actors from around Vancouver. Happens all the time. --The Merovingian 14:02, 6 March 2006 (CST)

Yeah, that's what I figured. Doesn't hurt to keep an eye out, though. --FIDS 06:27, 9 March 2006 (CST)

Minor Update

I filled in the Guest Stars section with the names and IMDb links for the actors who played Page, Vinson and Chu. --BklynBruzer 12:52, 7 September 2006 (CDT)
