Trivia

During the opening battle sequence, there are several instances of recycled footage from the film "Silent Running". As the Cylons attack the first 'Agroship' an interior shot of one of the domes is shown. Just a few frames before an explosion is cut in you can see Bruce Dern, in his "Silent Running" uniform, start to walk into the shot. See more »

Goofs

Boomer claims to count six Cylon Raiders during the opening battle, but the computer display shows five of them. See more »

Quotes

Bogan: Seed goes for 12 quantums a lexon. How much you need?
Lt. Starbuck: At least a thousand lexons, and eh, 12 quantums is eh, kinda high.
Bogan: Well, it is a long way to the next agron outpost.
Lt. Starbuck: Maybe I can get this currency to grow a little... After all, this is a chancery.

One of the weak episodes
12 July 2018 | by keyopeSee all my reviews

This really had the feel of a "filler" episode. The idea is sound. It's another Western in Space, but this episode lacks excitement and the effects are much poorer than in other episodes. It has a real cheap feel to it. However, for me the show really starts to pick up after this episode, so don't give up on the show just yet if you're unsure about it. It's all fun and excitement from here onwards.
