Didja Notice? 

 

The BSG70-Pegasus seen in this issue has the look of the BSG2000-Pegasus! The ship is destroyed in a deliberate collision with a BSG2000-basestar in this issue.

 

At the end of the story, apparently BSG70-Baltar is left behind on the BSG2000-Galactica! If this is the case, he must at some point return to the BSG70 universe because he is seen again in episodes set after "The Living Legend" Part 2 (immediately after which "Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica" Part 1 began).

 

Unanswered Questions

 

Will the story continue? On the last page of this issue, Count Iblis is seen still alive, floating in space after the destruction of the basestar he was on and he smiles and says, "Wonderful," as if everything went according to plan. The last page also presents "The End?" with a question mark.

 

Besides the obvious fact that both actors were portrayed by the same actor, what in-universe reason is there that BSG70-Apollo and BSG2000-Zarek look exactly alike except for age?
