Didja Notice? 

 

On page 6, panel 4, except for the Centurion at the head of the pack, all of the Centurions are copy-and-pastes of each other as noted by the light and shadow reflections on their armored bodies and particularly by the fact that each has their strobing red eye in the same right-hand position!

 

On page 9, Starbuck and Grust hijack Parrin's harvester ship and free the captive Jolly. Starbuck remarks, "Come on, Jolly--you wanted to be a pirate!" This refers to "Counterstrike" Part 4, in which Jolly reported to the Council that he felt like a pirate after testing the Colonial Movers cargo ship coupled to an Okaati harvester for speed.

 

On page 13, the Galactica seen in the space battle of it and the Comitat against the Cylons is an image of the BSG2000 version of the battlestar!! The wrong battlestar!

 

On page 15, Baltar is wearing the same Cylon helmet he wore near the end of "The Living Legend" Part 1.
