A stripped down Galactica attacks the Cylon's Colony ship in the hopes of rescuing Hera. The meaning of the shared dream in the Opera House on Kobol is revealed. Sam Anders is moved in his Hybrid tank to the CIC in the hopes that he will be able to assist the combatants. Their mission complete, Admiral Adama orders Starbuck to pick a destination - any destination - to which the ship can jump to get out of there. With that, the meaning of the tune and the musical notes are explained. Having successfully jumped, the old Galactica has truly reached the end of it's life. A planet capable of sustaining life is found and Lee Adama makes a radical proposal for the future of humankind. In a flash forward far into the future, Hera's importance to the human race is revealed.Written by
Kara Trace quotes directly from the song, "All Along the Watchtower" as she's inputting the coordinates for Earth into the FTL drive: "There must be some kind of way out of here". The song's notes are an integral part of finding a new home for humanity and the ultimate conclusion of the show. See more »
The events of the finale were supposed to have taken place 150,000 years ago. Therefore, when Galactica jumped to our Earth after rescuing Hera, shots of the African continent from space should have shown the Sahara to be lush and green rather than the pale desert it is today. See more »
Admiral William Adama:
[Just before the final battle with the Cylons]
Just so there'll be no misunderstandings later... Galactica has seen a lot of history, gone through a lot of battles. This will be her last. She will not fail us if we do not fail her. If we succeed in our mission, Galactica will bring us home. If we don't... it doesn't matter anyway.

BSG was never a well planned series. Creator Ronald Moore himself said in an interview that nothing was planned out in the beginning and every time an episode was written, brainstorming had to be done to get the plot going on forward. As expected, the writers plugged in a number of plot lines, but there are still holes in the plot that you can ram a rhino into it and you won't even get a dent. Many numerous plot lines are completely ignored (the cult of Baltar is one example). Many plot lines are resolved in a very slip shod manner that had me going "Is this for real or is this some sort of early April fools joke?!??" Oh and the preaching of the last 15 minutes. It just would not end! Moore just kept going on and on about how technology can be the end of us all. About how people relying on technology are on a brink. It was *very* irritating to say the least.
But what really ticked me off was the ending. I wont reveal it here explicitly but just say this: I did not enjoy BSG reusing the themes used in "Chariots of the Gods". That was just plain dumb.
In the end, this gets a 6.
