I dunno, maybe Bob Dylan and George Harrison were trading bong hits in the dish of a radio telescope, and Bob goes to George, "Naw, man, new, wait a sec, man. The Jimi thing was cool, but let's hear Ravi play it." And then he took it and ran with it, but they never recorded it, cause they all got the munchies the next morning? Or something.

I watched the reruns before the new season, to be in the best mode for it, and the inserted lines were funny, at one time, a drunk Saul Tigh says, "There's too much confusion ..." I'll have to watch those two episodes again, see if other lines are worked in ... 'though I figure I would have noticed, "businessmen drink my wine, ploughmen dig my herbs"

One thing I want to know and that is this. How did the Cylons channel Jimmy Hendrix? I didn't even recognize that song until they played it at the end of the last episode of season 3. That was some lamo version of it. I love "All Along The Watchtower", but couldn't recognize it.

That version was done by Bear McCreary. He does ALL the music for BSG

Yeah, I know, I was just being funny, and trying to work in a technobabble explanation. FWIW, I like the idea that the signal made it to the remote nebula, as some sort of audio beacon from the 13th tribe. What does it mean, I have to wonder.

And I liked the breezy sitar version they wrote for BSG. You have no idea, how many people, on other forums, have no idea that Bob Dylan wrote the song first, everyone just screams, "What did they do to Jimi's song? We wanna hear Jimi." When corrected, they actually get belligerent, some refuse to believe Bob Dylan wrote it.

I truly don't know for sure, one way or the other, if Dylan and Harrison ever met, it's just when I hear a sitar, I think of Ravi Shankar, and George Harrison, and well, marijuana, and Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix. Of course, radio telescopes and nebulas just follow logically, after that.

Well in the original they were 10ly from earth when they detected the Moon landing. I'm pretty certain there are no nebulii within 10ly of Earth. At least there weren't last time I looked in the sky...........in the daytime.

Romo Lampkin. You heard it here first. (He's supposed to show up once in the first 10 episodes, and once more in the last 10).

Or how about that guy who can't seem to hold down a job for more than an episode or two, but still somehow manages to be an expert.

Shouldnt it be pretty obvious that Baltasar is the 12th Cylon ?
In the last episode he did appear to himself, just like what the blonde cylon did. I believe that indicates that he is a cylon as well.

That is why he is God and not a cylon. Really who knows whats going on with Baltar. I sincerely doubt they will make him out to be a cylon in the end. Ironically he might turn out to be the only real human in the entire fleet. ROFLMAO... and now that the toasters, the chrome ones, have "feelings", who knows, they might turn on their masters and wipe them all out.

Back in the second season, there was an interesting scene where the humans captured two Brother Cavel cylons, and the cylons described the role of their preachers as exactly the opposite of human preachers:

President: Where did the Cylons go -- back to their homeworld?
Cavil#1:Well I'de rather not say just now, uh let's just say we have other plans.
Adama(cynically): New marching orders by your One True God.
Cavil#2: There is no God.
Cavil#1: Supernatural divinities are the primitive's answer for why the sun goes down at night.
Cavil#2: At least that's what we've been telling the others for years.
Cavil#1: Can't really prove it one way or the other of course.

But in the latest episode, seems that the One True God is proving the cylon preachers wrong, and that the 'primitive' cylons who worship their One True God (love?) are right.

And Six loves Baltar. And Baltar loves everybody...

...Hey what ever happened to their bizzarro cross-bred foursome baby? She should be about two or three by now. What will her first word be?
