In honor of Battlestar Galactica coming to a close tonight, here a whole bunch of links to some Battlestar delight from all over the net.
At the AV Club we have Remember That Thing?: All the forgotten Battlestar Galactica factoids you need to enjoy the finale, maybe. Here you can find a bunch of handy dandy reminders of facts we may have forgotten in the six years since the mini-series first ended. Don't know how much any of these will play into the finale, but it definitely made me realize I have forgotten quite a bit of BSG's smaller plot points.
At Io9, we have 12 Plotholes That Must Be Filled in the Battlestar Finale. They bring some really important questions, some of which we may have even forgotten about. These include, but are not limited to:
- What exactly is the Cylons' plan?
- What is Starbuck?
- Where do Baltar's loyalties actually lie?
- Why do Cylons have to be in love in order to reproduce?
I'd like to add to that with a few questions of my own
- What's the deal with the opera house/Roslin's visions/the prophecies?
- What is Daniel's link to anything? (Unfortunately we know the answer to that one...)
- Where do Boomer's loyalties actually lie?
- Who is Starbuck's soulmate? She's had so many people in love/infatuated/sleep with her, I feel like the answers's gotta somewhat factor into a finale
- It's all happened before and it will all happen again - will we see this played out?
Do I think we'll get answers to all of these questions? Of course not. But it would be nice to get some.
Next up, from The TV Addict The Battlestar Galactica Death Pool. Submit who you think is gonna die and win a big Battlestar Prize Package!!! Similar contest going on at Battlestar Wiki
From The Film Experience Blog, Hump Day Hottie - Battlestar's Beefcake, featuring all the beautiful men from BSG being beautiful...I like this picture in particular...
From the Battlestar Wiki, the BSG Frak Map, detailing who has slept with who. I love this kind of stuff. Roslin fraked Adar?
And finally, all of All Things Fangirl's Battlestar posts. We've only existed since November, but we love our Battlestar, so we've posted plenty. We've got posts on merchandise, events, episodes, webisodes, auction, videos, BSG humor and more.
I leave you now with two of our videos from NYCC 2008 featuring three of the final five.

On a personal note, it really hit me earlier that one of my favorite shows of all time is coming to an end tonight and it made me really sad. I discovered Battlestar on DVD in 2005, subsequently became obsessed and never looked back. I introduced the show to just about all of my friends & my boyfriend who also subsequently became obsessed with it :). I'm happy that so many people, people who don't even consider themselves Sci Fi fans have discovered the show and love it as much as I do. I've always identified with Starbuck and she remains one of my favorite female characters of all time. Though david disagrees with me on that one. I'm so happy I'm hopefully going to the Paley Center BSG/Caprica panel in April so I can properly say goodbye to the show I love so much. I'm also thrilled that I have my BSG toaster, my Lee/Kara minimates, my Starbuck art print, my "I'm the Final Cylon" necklace, my limited edition BSG sketched cover comic book, my BSG shirt, my BSG pins and more. It's been an amazing four years (six years for others) of geeking out to this show and tracking down random merchandise. And it'll all be over in six hours. :(
Hope you all enjoy the episode tonight and get to watch with fellow fans!
So say we all!
Some links that have popped up since I first posted this Round Up:
EW's Recap of last week's episode featuring this bit that I love: "And I loved the silent act of drawing the proverbial line in the sand. Rather, a red line on the deck. A rose line. Roslin. (It all comes around, doesn't it?)"
