…wait for the cylons to destroy them?
Not a frakin’ option.
With all the talk about [tag]Battlestar Galactica[/tag] [tag]ending[/tag], I’ve been thinking about how it might wrap up. It’s one of the best [tag]science fiction[/tag] shows on [tag]TV[/tag]. I’m hoping that the [tag]ending[/tag] will live up to what we’ve seen so far. It’s a tricky business making [tag]Galatica’s ending[/tag] as great as the show has been but I have some theories on how it might be done.
Earth, the final frontier.
The [tag]fleet[/tag] will find [tag]Earth[/tag], that’s no [tag]theory[/tag], but what Earth will they find? I very much doubt it’ll be a present day Earth. That’s what the original show did. And lo, the fans looked upon it and it was lame. I don’t think this show will make the same mistake.
If it’s not the Earth as we know it, what will it be? There are two possibilities that I see.
- It’s a future Earth, with the technology to help protect them from the [tag]cylons[/tag] or a future Earth that’s dead. Yep, a barren dust ball. We’ve already destroyed ourselves, the cylons are too late.
- Prehistoric Earth, the lost colony couldn’t make it. Either they never made it to Earth or they died out. All the fleet finds is a wild untamed planet.
Now, if the fleet finds either uninhabited Earth what are they gonna do? Stop there and wait for the cylons to destroy them? Not a frakin’ option. Keep going and hope they find someone who can help them? Nope, [tag]Edward James Olmos[/tag] was cast as [tag]Adama[/tag], not Kate Mulgrew. They will make their stand. The fleet will colonize Earth. They will become the [tag]thirteenth coloney[/tag]. This is why I’m leaning towards the prehistoric Earth theory. I believe we’ll find out that we are the descendants of the fleet.
What are your theories?
