A Battlestar Galactica Prediction

Filed under: Battlestar Galactica, Not Tech — Chris @ 8:06 pm

H and Zohar came up with a theory about the mythology of Battlestar Galactica that I won’t share in full because it’s too complicated (it involved flowcharts), but from which I would like to enter into the record the following predictions (which are due to H and Zohar, and not me):

  • Starbuck is a pseudo-Cylon, reverse-engineered from or secretly devised by some of the “Final Five” (aka Earth Cylons) as a colonial super-soldier. All of the people who would have known this (except maybe some version of Ellen) were killed in the attack on the Colonies.
  • Starbuck’s Earth Cylon biological roots will account for the fact that she was downloaded by some still-active resurrection center on Earth. (Or maybe Earth Cylon resurrection technology is advanced enough to download anything and everything, which would account for the “resurrection” of Starbuck’s Viper.)

I would simply observe the following: isn’t it interesting that the tribes of humanity number 13 while the Cylon models number only 12?

[UPDATE, post episode 4.17, “No Exit”] A point for me, I think, on the numerological prediction. Of course, anybody who can count to eight has been wondering what happened to seven since Season 2, at least.



    So something of my theory maybe right after all.

  2. Why is my ICON a swastika?

  3. 0) Hi, Zo!

    1) I’m not going to look at that. I’m getting more than my share of spoilers from RDM’s podcasts.

    2) The identicon algorithm scans your brain and produces a precise graphical representation of your personality. In your case, it is a festive purple swastika. The algorithm doesn’t lie. 😉

  4. We are not amused!

    Anyhoo… 🙂 Well at least Leah is out of Top Chef… but double elimination next time? my prediction, is Carla and Stefan as final two.

  5. You see, you change your IP address, and now you’re a teal quilt.

    They’ve had 3 in the final round the last 2 seasons, so expect that to be the case this year too. I’m definitely betting on Carla and Stefan, flip a coin for the third… I hope it will be Fabio, only because I really detest Hosea.
