The Final Five

BSG fans – I call upon thee. Riddle me this: The Eye of Jupiter temple was created by the 13′th Colony. The temple did not actually hold the eye but the instructions of how to find it – the eye being an ancient Nova that supposedly points in the direction of Earth.

So, seeing how the temple has been built by humans, and it actually does not contain any eye like mystical items – why does Xena Warrior Princes have a vision of the Final Five models in it? Why would the colonists leave such a message for the Cylons in there? And if they didn’t then who did, and why would they? What is the connection between the 13′th colony and the final five? Or is this vision just Xena’s brain frying from being exposed to the radiation emitted by the nova?

Oh, and guess what? I don’t think Sharon is immune to the Cylon killer bug anymore. The excuse for her immunity was that she gave birth to a hybrid child and so she somehow developed it because of whatever. Now that she death-jumped to the Base Star she has a brand spanking new body which is a perfect clone of pre-pregnancy Sharon of course. Helo is probably going to be pleasantly surprised next time they decide to make the sexy time… But Sharon better watch out cause that virus may still be lingering on BSG. The fact that humans are immune to it, does not mean they do not transmit it…

    Just to be annoying, I’ll disagree. The “disease” was supposed to be able to be transmitted to the resurrection ships when people died of the disease. If that’s the case, then maybe her immunity can be transmitted as well. We’ll see I suppose.

    Actually I have a big issue with that whole “virus transmitted via upload” thing cause it makes no sense to me. I mean, there is no biological link between the dying Cylon body and it’s clone. So the virus theoretically would need to attack neural tissues in such a way that memory upload would actually preserve the viral DNA strands in the affected brain cells and thus trigger replication in the host body.

    I always thought that Cylon resurrection tech simply rebuilt the neural connections based on memory mappings sent at the time of death. So the virus would have to somehow reroute neurons and… Ugh… I don’t know – it just doesn’t make sense.

    So I figured that Cylons are just freaked by the virus and actual upload of the infected mind would do didlly squat to a base star. But then again, I’m not a BSG writer so you might be right. :)

    Again, late to the show, but with it starting back up again soon I’ve been thinking about it again.

    Maybe the virus is sort of Psychosomatic? Like it’s code that causes the individual Cylon’s body to make itself sick?

    Did you watch Razor? I think a lot was made of the whole “all this has happened before, and will happen again” thing. Maybe the answer to your questions about the temple is in there somewhere?

    I have yet to watch Razor. Maybe this week – have to get myself back in the loop before the show starts again. :)
