Didja Notice? 

 

Page 5 implies that Count Iblis created the black hole the fleet was forced to fly into in "In the Beginning" and even created the realm the fleet finds itself in upon emerging from the singularity. Iblis reveals here that he plans to use the Galactica as the key to his revenge against the Beings of Light, which may explain how the fleet was able to survive passing through the singularity.

 

In this issue, the comatose Commander Adama is able to initiate telepathic contact with Apollo. Baltar is reminded that Adama was trained in telepathic communication at the Colonial Military Institute. Armageddon later reveals that descendants of the House of Kobol, like Adama and Apollo, do have mental abilities such as telepathy that can be brought forth with training. "The Fever" also suggested there may have been some low-level telepathy going on between Apollo and his adopted son, Boxey.

 

On page 7, Starbuck says that when they looked inside Count Iblis' old ship, they saw it full of demonic skeletons like the ones they've found in the crater on the unknown planet. We, the audience, never saw what it was they found in that ship (in "War of the Gods" Part 2).

 

Also on page 7, Sheba refers to Iblis as Diaboles. This is one of the names Apollo says is analogous to that of Iblis in "War of the Gods" Part 2.

 

On page 9, the "new" Cylons state they are from the Meclon Empire. In "Infamous", Lucifer will explain that Meclons are a class of rogue Cylons from a cautionary myth written long ago as part of an attempt at control programming that was considered a complete failure. Apparently, the new Cylons took the name from the story in acknowledgment of the fact that they are rogue from the traditional Cylon Empire.

 

On page 14, Sheba and the others discover that the Meclon Centurions have a person inside, the robotic armor grafted on and into their body. Similar cyborg Centurions are seen later in "Centurion Prime" and "Masquerade".
