Camp Oil Slick vs. Dogsville

My understanding is that Camp Oil Slick was established for civillian refugees after the exodus from New Caprica, and only existed until they could be relocated to their original ships. Dogsville was established months later, after the events of "The Passage", to house the displaced persons from the Adriatic and the Carina. Is this correct? --April Arcus 13:01, 28 February 2007 (CST)

Basically yes. It's never established that it's related to "The Passage" but likey. However they're just different names for the same thing: refugee camps. Even if the refugees are different. --Serenity 13:09, 28 February 2007 (CST)

Move

I requested that this page be moved to Dogsville. "Camp Oil Slick" was used in only one episode that I'm aware of, "Dogsville" has been used much more in many more episodes. If the characters call it "Dogsville", that's what we should call it (most articles refer to "Dogsville" already). --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 14:25, 13 March 2007 (CDT)

Dogsville already redirects here and in the first line both names are mentioned. --Serenity 14:48, 13 March 2007 (CDT)
Right. Removed move box. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 15:34, 13 March 2007 (CDT)

Possible reference?

The name "dogsville" could be a reference to the film "Dogville", which uses a very minimal set, consisting of lines drawn on a stage floor for example designating the walls of a house. Living space is similarly divided without real walls in Galactica's Dogsville. If it's not something imposed on me by my limited (learnt) knowlegde of the english language, i think this should be noted. Raziel Anarki 14:44, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
