But how did the Cylons find the algae planet, random luck?

That really wasn't answered in the episode. I think someone (Gaeta) was mentioning "fate" being that the Colonials and  Cylons met at one of the sacred places with the system's star about to go nova on them. But I would hope there would be a more fitting answer than coincidence... the galaxy is quite large for that though I've had certain instances of meeting someone I knew thousands of miles from where both of us live. Anyway, I degress.

A plausible answer to the Cylons arriving for the algae planet would be the same reason as the Colonials. Food. Baltar needs something to eat.

Another thing that I can see is more planet-stops along the way. Not just for food and water, but to find more clues for the path to Earth. They got the Arrow at Kobol, now the Eye at the Algae planet...

Can someone explain to me again why the cylons didn't just wipe the humans out? Does Baltar really have that kind of pull, or was there a bit of information I missed?

As for why they didn't take out the colonial fleet in the episode... the Cylons knew the humans were on the planet and found the temple with the Eye of Jupiter that shows the way to Earth. The Cylons also want this as well therefore wanted to bargain with Adama for the Eye. After realizing they didn't have it, the Cylons (more D'Anna) went about a different tactic to get the Eye... and Adama stated he'd nuke the planet before letting them have it. That's a rough review... there's more to it than that.

As for Baltar, the Cylons kind of revere him. Maybe for his part in the Cylon takeover... maybe for his intellect... Baltar seems to understand things they don't - like when that Basestar Cylon (that are like the psychics from Minority Report) started babbling he understood the riddle.

30th Anniversary Collection / 30th Anniversary Collection = Delayed
« on: December 15, 2006, 03:51 PM »
Hasbro sent along a little 30th Anniversary Collection Update as part of this week's Q&A:

Quote
Due to unavoidable production delays, the first waves of Star Wars 30th Anniversary basic figures for 2007 will be delayed until March. We are looking at every way to get the figures in earlier, but fans should not expect to find them on shelf on 1/1 as we were hoping. We expect subsequent waves beyond the first to be on schedule shortly thereafter. We'll keep everyone updated as needed, but please be patient. Thanks!


Looks like we'll be seeing the Final 22 repack waves for a while...  :-\

This is quite a disappointment since I've really been looking forward to the 30th Anniversary waves. I guess the positive side is that the pocket book will not be taking a hit right away.

I would buy Roron Corrob but there is no need for another Momaw Nadon, we just got one.

I definitely agree and Roron could be a possibilty since we got Foul this year... but it could be a rehash of Momaw. The big H loves repacking crap left and right. Let's hope not though.

Purge Bultar????
momaw nadon Y????Is it a young version or a repack or a jedi?????

I'd prefer a AotC Bultar Swan first than the one from Purge. As for the Momaw Nadon, I wonder if it is Roron Corrob from Clone Wars cartoons???

Again this is just an idea, a possible scenario. What would be stupid is too shoot others ideas down, just because you don't agree with them, that's stupid!

I think it's fun to try and speculate about these possible scenarios (no matter how outrageous) and not get serious about it.  ;D JK Rowling will be the final say as to Harry's fate.  ;)

Man, say what you will about Hasbro, but they've put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into next years line.  From the character specific blister card artwork , to the individually tooled coins, the line is looking to be one of the best ever.

Good stuff.

I agree. The artwork is sweet!! makes one want to weep.

HP isn't really childrens books anymore...

I think what Artoo means, and I've heard this from different sources, that HP books started off as kids books but as Harry aged, the tone of the books got more darker. Dealing with pre-adult issues. So while their not really the tone of childrens books anymore, they're not necessarily an adult book either... I'd say in the teens.

I have a question: Do we know all the numbers for the 7 known Cylon models (Six, Sharon, D'Anna, Leoben, Doral, Simon, Cavil?

I think in "Download", D'Anna says that she is 3, Sharon is 8 (and obviously we know what model six is). What about the other 4? Anyone able to help out? Thanks.

I don't know if they've told all the numbers yet.  But recently they've been referring to Six as Caprica if I'm not mistaken.  So, they all have names now.

   E...

I think they refer to a specific Six as Caprica because she is the one that got downloaded the former Caprica's memories (she's called Natasi in the novelization) so that way we know which one is more sympathetic to Baltar in the range of Sixes wandering about Basestars.

The Kat episode wasn't my favorite. Collectively though, I could hear a big sigh of relief when she expired.

ala Monty Python, "and there was much rejoicing!"

Yes, Kat wasn't my favorite character either.

Hard to believe that we're almost at midway point, too... Next episodes the last of the fall season!!  :o ::) I guess with the holidays coming up they figure no ones gonna have time to watch.

Spoiler...







Yeah, I can't believe that they killed her either. I wished they would have kept her alive a bit longer to explore her back-story of being a drug-runner and potentially bring in Cylons into the Colonies more.

Can't wait for the next episode... more Cylons and Baltar!!
