Talk:The Heavens Will Rise

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide


Another user had asked in the Questions section if the unseen medical practitioner named Cottle was a young Sherman Cottle. I changed that question to ask if the two are related. As we know from the end of "Appotheosis", the future Admiral Adama wasn't even born until a year or more after "The Heavens will Rise". Meanwhile, the unseen Cottle is a physician - and presumably an experienced one, based upon Amanda's confidence in him. That makes the unseen Cottle a minimum of twenty - maybe far more than twenty - years older than Adm. Adama, which Sherman certainly is not.
