So the end of "Battlestar Galactica" is finally here -- the Sci Fi Channel's (soon to be Syfy's) flagship show docks in the port of reruns and DVD lore.
But there are a few questions left unanswered. Enter the show's creator, Ron Moore, who supplied some answers without giving any spoilers.
Whose job was it to calculate the surviving humans?
It was a three-way responsibility. There were people on physical production, people up in Vancouver. The first assistant director and the prop department would keep track on a white dry erase board aboard Colonial One, and then they would coordinate with the script coordinators who kept track of the script, and then with post-production, who would track the number that would be shown in the main title each week.
The glowing red spine (during sex) in the first season. Was it just abandoned?
It wasn't really abandoned; we just didn't do a lot more Cylon sex scenes.
How did Baltar survive the nuclear explosion?
Well, he survived the nuclear explosion because if you look at the shot when the windows are blown in, you see that Caprica Six is actually protecting him at the moment -- she kind of grabs him and shields him with her body.
