    Oh great! I'm the only who though that was awesome and hilarious. It sounds absurd but Cavil became one of my favorites if not my most favorite character in that instant, I thought it was THAT great!

    Loved it, even if it left a lot unresolved.

    Head Six has claimed since season 1 that she was an angel, so getting it proved right wasn't exactly a surprise. Hera's fate as "Lucy" threw me for a loop, but explained a lot of what followed. Hera was also young enough to adapt to life among the hominids, something I doubt the adults who were used to technology would be able to do. Somehow I found Starbuck's fate very unsatisfactory, I expected something more from her.

    Certainly I've seen much worse series finales...

    I enjoyed it very much. The flashbacks gave a lot of insight into the characters lives; Roslin at first reluctant to join Adar's campaign, etc. The battle was amazing; the effects and the battle itself were memorable. I especially liked how Racetrack fulfilled her wish to die taking out as many cylons as possible.

    I was very surprised when Galactica jumped to our Earth and revealed that the show took place 150,000 years in our past.

    All in all it was a very good episode

    It was great. The whole battle scene's were amazing. Some of the best visual's i've seen of any show and some movies. I do have a few complaint's though, the first being the nuclear explosion on the colony. The explosion's just didn't look right, they were easily 3 times the size of the colony. When Galactica was hit with a nuke way back in the mini-series, the explosion was roughly the same size as Galactica. Since galactica looked like a tiny pin sticking out the side of the colony, it would take alot of nukes to create the explosion we saw. So it was either a production error or those were some very high yield multi gigaton nukes.

    The second being some of the flashbacks. Sure a few offered us new insight on the character's past, but a few just seemed unnecessary. For instance, Adama puking his gut's out, the only new insight that offers us is the fact that Adama is a light weight.

    Third is the ending of the episode. It would have been better if they expanded it alittle. Tell us how thought's, idea's, culture's and religion from an advanced civilization 150,000 years ago managed to randomly pop up throughout history. Someone here on the forum's posted his/her version of how to ending should have been that i thought would have fit nicely, it involved genetic memory passed on to us from the colonial's 150,000 years ago.

    besides that, the episode was great.

    The truth can be a hard fact

    Daybreak Pt I was boring. All of it was just setup that kept me uninterested. The exception being where Adama drew the line in Galatica's Viper Bay.

    I loved Pt II in how Galatica rescued Hera. It had a nice mix of action and drama.

    Pt III was epic fail in how all the plotline arcs was ended with the greatest Deus Ex Machina out there

    It's really not a plot deus ex machina when the answer has been dangled in front of us since the beginning.

    That's what I thought after I finally got to see 4.5 after many others had already seen. I tried to stay away from spoilers as much as possible and did see reference to this but not what it was. So I was surprised that so many objected to the ending. I thought it made sense. And then thought maybe I was nuts to think that

    Deus Ex Machina means God from the Machine. If that doesn't describe BSG I don't know what will

    I totally agree. I for one very much enjoyed the way BSG ended.

    Fair point, but I don't think that's what was meant. The writers didn't write themselves into a corner, needing a miracle to get out of it. At least not this time.

    I didn't like get rid of advanced technology, and the bit where they find out about the visions didn't mean anything.
