Battlestar Galactica / Caprica Questions, Mysteries, and Frustrations

(Spoiler Alert! If you haven't watched Battlestar Galactica, go watch it right now. Then come back and answer my questions.)

I admire television writers. I really do. Most of them are brilliant most of the time.

The writers who wrote Battlestar Galatica are particularly amazing. And I'm very excited to see Blood and Chrome:

But before I add yet another drug to my impressive BSG franchise addiction, I worry it's only going to confuse me further.

I just finished watching Caprica, and I'm so very confused. I know, I should be using my brain to solve real life problems, but I just can't help it.

So here's what I thought I knew, based on BSG reimagined:

  • Five cylons escape world war to head back to the 12 colonies.
  • They leave clues on their way. Why? Who were they leaving clues for? Why on earth did they build a temple en route?
  • When they get to the 12 colonies, they design/invent the 7 "skin jobs" and give them resurrection.
  • Somehow, one of those 7 (#1) manages to brainwash the original five and make them forget who they are. How and why did that happen again?
  • Didn't Ellen say that she gave the skin jobs their faith in a one true god? 
Were some of these questions answered? Did I miss something? Then, I watch Caprica hoping to get some answers.

But alas, now there are only more questions:
  • So long before the Final 5 built the skin jobs, the Graystones built one first? Well then why did the Cylons need the Final 5?
  • And, if one true god was Ellen's idea, then why did we need all that Sister Clarice drama?
  • What on earth happened to Tamara?
  • Why did they kill off the original William Adama? 
And while we're at it:
  • What happened to #7?
  • What happened to Starbuck? Why did she crash onto a nuked earth? Why did she come back as a ghost? And why did she vanish?
  • Why did Admiral Adama (William Adama #2 that is) fly halfway across Earth (Earth #2 that is) to settle and die alone? Was this just to explain how the human population spread around our current planet? Because it would have made much more sense to have someone a bit more young and fertile do that part.
  • What happened to Chief? How come we don't get to see him living happily ever after on Earth #2? That upsets me. If anybody did, he deserved a happily ever after. 
  • How did Starbuck's father write the song that wakes up cylons and saves the human/cylon race?
  • Who was the dude at the piano touching Starbuck's face?
  • Okay, I'll stop now.

Will Blood and Chrome answer any of these questions for me? Or will it just leave me with more?

Please, skilled and gifted BSG writers, please, throw me a bone!

UPDATE! My friend pointed me toward a post that answered most of my questions:

I'm now ready for Blood and Chrome. Bring it on SyFy!


  1. Wow... so we own the entire BSG series, but in our lack of cable I totally missed Caprica... and now another movie! My husband needs to go shopping again.

  2. Lol, yes, get on it! :)
    Don't get your hopes up though! Neither of them compare to BSG.
