Were they really attempting to "reverse-engineer" the Raider, or just see if they could get it to work again and what makes it work? my impression was the latter... Rocky8311 01:32, 4 November 2005 (EST)

How is that different than reverse engineering? --April Arcus 01:35, 4 November 2005 (EST)
Wait, yeah, reverse-engineering is when you analyze something to build your own; just analyzing the Raider to learn how to fly it again isn't that --Ricimer 09:45, 4 November 2005 (EST)
No, it's when you take something apart to find out how it works, rather than building it from scratch. See Reverse engineering. --April Arcus 10:48, 4 November 2005 (EST)

As to the question "Who wrote "CYLON" on Boomer's locker mirror?" I think the answer is Boomer herself. The scene starts with here looking like she just woke up from sleeping and when she's opening the locker and later the medicine bottle it looks like she has something yellow on her fingers. --Yorthen 14:13, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

I always thought it was Boomer herself too. But the "The Story So Far" recap said it were other crewmembers who suspected her to be a Cylon. But we don't really have to accept that as the one truth, and I prefer that it was Sharon --Serenity 14:21, 15 October 2006 (CDT)
I don't think what is said in "The Story So Far" is meant to indicate that it was some other who wrote it, but rather a more general statement that some crew-members began to suspect that she might be a Cylon (probably meaning Chief Tyrol). --Yorthen 14:10, 16 October 2006 (CDT)

"No more mr. nice Gaius"

Don't you think, that this statement, "No more mr. nice Gaius", cried loudly by Baltar in the restroom, is a reference to an Alice Cooper song, titled "No More Mr. Nice Guy"? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TarsoyGer (talk • contribs).

No, I'd say it's a reference to a common colloquial phrase, just like the song is. Btman 04:24, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Not that kind of shot?

When the Doc is preparing to give Roslin her shot, and she bares her arm, he tells her, "it's not that kind of shot." Maybe I'm being dense, but ... what? I'm sure he didn't mean it was tequila. Btman 04:22, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

He was clearly going to give her a shot in a more personal region, like her bottom. -- Noneofyourbusiness 16:43, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough; that seemed like the simplest explanation, but the way the scene cut away and never returned to it made it seem like there was meant to be more significance to it than just a comedic aside. Just seemed like an odd directing decision, I guess. Btman 18:45, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Cutting away and not returning is standard for a comedic aside. -- Noneofyourbusiness 23:10, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Don't make me angry Mr MeGee; You would not like me when I am angry!

In the projection the Virtual Caprica Six tells Gaius Baltar; a line similar to the 1970's TV series The Incredible Hulk; the Dr. David Banner said to the Reporter who is chasing him. Caprica Six says "Don't make me angry Gaius, You would not like me when I am angry" I remember BSG TOS ran around about the same time period as the Bill Bixby Hulk show...and if you have noticed things like characters saying things like "For Sagan's Sake" being a reference to the astronmer Carl Sagan, whose show "Cosmos" premeired in the TOS or 1980 spinoff time...I wonder if Ron Moore or David Eick threw in more of these little puns to see if people like us notice them!--Balator 01:42, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Baltar´s Six

We don´t really now what is baltar´s hallucination. She could be several things. I´ll discuss a few briefly. 1) An inplant from the Cylons to manipulate him. I believe its is unlikly, since the film "The Plan" contradics it. The Cylons infiltrated into the colonial fleet had no knowledge of her. 2) She could be Baltar´s subconsios mind. It´s an interesting interpretatin, becouse her behavior is opposed to Baltar´s. He is skeptic, hesitant and weak-minded. She is decisive, strong-willed and she believes in God. She might be a psychological mechanism for him to deal with the trauma of having survived a Holocaust he helped to create. 3) She might be some kind of "angel" from God (or the Gods). If this is right, her role is to guide Baltar into the path he must pursue in order to fullfill God´s plan.

Important detail: At the end of the episode, Baltar asks if the whole episode really happened. He is so confused that he cannot distinguish reality from illusion anymore.
