Notes from the BSG chronology

 

This mini-series takes place largely over Days 102-106 of the Cylon occupation of New Caprica. There are also flashbacks to previously unseen events shortly before and after the discovery of the planet that becomes New Caprica. The flashback portions of this issue take place 10 days after the discovery of New Caprica, Day 280 since fleeing the Twelve Colonies. Yet, Admiral Adama tells Sgt. Flores that Baltar has won the presidential election, which does not happen until Day 283 in the TV series. It seems we must presume that the past scene in this issue takes place 13 days after the discovery of the planet instead (during the events of "Lay Down Your Burdens" parts 1 and 2).

Didja Notice?

 

A barred window is seen in Sgt. Flores' cell in the Galactica brig. We've never seen a window in the Galactica's brig before. It seems unlikely it would have one. Where would it look out to? The next cell?!

 

Sgt. Flores remarks to Admiral Adama that an old guy once told her that life keeps moving whether we like it or not. The "old guy" was Adama himself in "Twilight Command" Part 3.

 

Twilight Command steals G-4 explosive from a ship that appears to be Colonial One. In the BSG universe, G-4 seems to be very similar to our own C-4 plastic explosive. G-4 has been used in several past episodes.
