* the way they board a ship by crashing into it
* the red light on their head
* the self-destruct when they die

Are there so little BG fans around here?

The Wraith aren't too different. In the early days of Atlantis the Wraith self-destructed after death and in an episode in the First Season a Wraith (Bob, I believe) beamed aboard Atlantis before the Dart self-destructed, which is similar to crashing into the city.

They didn't self destruct. He was holding a grenade.

The Wraith have both a grenade type weapon and a self destruct device that has been shown attached to some of their chests. Off hand, we've see the self destruct in "Suspicion" and "Sateda."

I think he was referring to the aliens in this episode not the Wraith ;)

That makes sense and yeah it does look like an alien grenade now that it's been pointed out. The beeping and blinking light, plus the situation it was actived under brings up imagry of a self destruct type device. But it passes more for a grenade when I look at it closely.

I don't think a show of this caliber would dare reference a competing show of another caliber.

Well, the grenade "suicide" reminded me more of the predators for some reasons.

No offense meant but...

...As far as crashing ships into things, has anyone ever hear of WWII Kamikaze pilots?

... ST TNG's Borg alo had red blinking lights.

...Has anyone ever seen the movie Predator? They did the self destruct thing back in 1987.


Again, I respect the opinion, but not everything BSG does is original. I mean that sarcastically as very little in the series is original. It might be entertaining, but it really isn't original in any way (hence the series itself being a remake). :)

Crashing the ship into them to board was not a plan though. Their ship got hit and only then when it lost control did it crash into the Daedalus.
