"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

The Colonial Merchant Marine And The Motive Of Baltar's Treason

The following is my attempt to explain why Baltar did what he did, and frame it in the background of the classic program. It also explains that green outfit John Colicos wore in character, beginning in Lost Planet Of The Gods, and why he did not wear it before then. Finally, it reveals Baltar's fate.



This is not strictly canon as yet. What it is, instead, is my personal speculation, so I ask your…

Raven cautiously sounding all clear

With the second suspect having been aprehended, I believe it prudent to bring the ship to condition 3, all clear. Thank you for your rapid response and be safe out there.

Calling all artist!!!

I am calling for an artist who would be willing to do a piece for me. I am looking for a piece depicting the visuals of the Vipers in my squadron the Minotaur. 

What I would like to see is either an in-flight or landed Viper Mark III and Mark VII. The one thing that would make us distinctive is on the tail wing, The wing itself would be red and black checkered. Also on the Mark III in the nose would be a mini gun as you would see on the A-10 Thunderbolt.  If you want to get…
