Notes from the BSG chronology

 

This mini-series takes place largely over Days 102-113 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.

 

Characters appearing or mentioned in this issue

 

Sgt. Flores (dies in this issue)

Number One

Spark

Deacon

Sam Anders (mentioned only)

Admiral Adama

Chief Tyrol

 

Didja Notice?

 

On page 11, the bars of Flores' cell door in the Galactica brig rise up in to the ceiling when the door opens, but the TV series clearly shows that the brig's cell doors open outward manually.

 

On the last page, Admiral Adama is seen standing next to a window out into space, seemingly in CIC. But there are no large windows on Galactica except the one in the observation lounge.

 

Though not stated outright, it seems that Adama allowed Twilight Command to remain as an independent unit led by Sgt. Flores on New Caprica, a secret counter to Baltar's leadership (and later to the Cylons' occupation).

 

Unanswered Questions

 

What happened to Deacon? The reprogrammed Cylon survives through this issue and even receives a rebuilt body after being torn down to just a head and torso by Number One. And how much of Number One's reprogramming remained? Will he betray Twilight Command? We never see the Centurion again. Presumably he was destroyed in combat against Cylon forces before the human exodus from New Caprica or was left behind during the exodus.

 

Sgt. Flores dies in this issue, but the remaining members survive. Do they return to the fleet during the human exodus from New Caprica?
