Lost Planet of the Gods - just a discussion

Post by oneofbaltarsfewfans » Wed Sep 27, 2017 10:47 am

This is the episode that makes me wish there had been a second season. So many things could have been developed further. I love shows, books, games, etc that have some big twist and I would have loved to have seen if maybe, just maybe, Baltar really was trying to warn Adama. Maybe he wasn't really that bad of a guy, just made some bad choices. And then his whole ordeal in the tombs just drove him mad. With the way they added him back in Gun On Ice Planet Zero, he acts more like his "insanity", so to speak, is more of a recent development.

Baltar misunderstood? Maybe, but I am with just a bad guy that was in search of power. :IL: :cylon: :cylongold:

Which is awesome too. :cool: I'm just saying it would have been an interesting take on it.

I like to give bad guys a little more credit then they deserve. :)

Not all the deaths may have been shown. Remember, ABC had a limit for onscreen deaths in the 8:00 time slot. That's why they changed the Cylons from living beings to androids.
So originally The Cylons were going to be a humanoid species? Bit like The Klingons then I'd guess! :IL:

The Cylons were more like a Lizard type of creature. That is why the Imperious Leader has that lizard like look. It was a tribute to the original Cylon creatures that designed the Cylon Robots. ABC didn't allow that much killing of a living creature to be broadcast back then, but a robot was not a living creature. So Glen made a few adjustments in the story line as recalled by Apollo when talking to Boxey in the Landram on Carillon and then make these lizard like creatures into robots. Andrew Probert took over the initial designs, and refined the look to what Glen approved.
I guessed after that you meant they would look like Lizard creatures as The Imperious Leader does. But he is also a machine too as stated in LPOG:1 by Lucifer himself too!

Lucifer clearly had ambitions of becoming the next Imperious Leader. I like to imagine the Leader was destroyed on Gamoray, and then after Baltar's capture Lucifer took credit for destroying the Pegasus and attained his goal. :IL:

Except that the meeting was on the Atlantia. :wink:
Guess they might have pulled in warriors from the other battlestars to help out, though.
I heard they came from Purple and Orange Squadron

We mustn't ever forget that it was Baltar who betrayed the entire human race to The Cylons to begin with! Later on I think after he had been threatened with death by The Imperious Leader, he probably would like to have seen The Galactica destroy them and leave him in control of his colony or planet that we never learned anything about! I wonder if he's still living in that tiny shuttle with short range communication equipment on an icy derelict planet at the edge of the galaxy still waiting for Lucifer to pick him up? I suppose it depends on what order you watch the episodes I guess? :IL:
