The Guns of Navaronne meet the Cylon Death Machine!. it was a great ep, though i could have done without the clones aspect. If you ever get the oppurtunity to get the novel BsG 2 The Cylon Death Machine grab it, the amount of addt info and back stories are worth it!

Default Re: BG-05: Gun On Ice Planet Zero

There is a line uttered by Lucifer at the end of Pt. 2 that has amusingly caused a lot of confusion over its actual meaning. As he reports the failure of the plan to Baltar, Lucifer mentions that they will have to come up with an explanation for the Imperious Leader.

Some people have come away with the impression that Lucifer is giving a name to the Imperious Leader in the line which they think he says they must explain this "to Barkol to the Imperious Leader." The writer of Dynamite's "Cylon Apocalypse" comics series thought so and has Imperious Leader addressed as "Lord Barkol."

But in fact, Lucifer's line is they must find a way to explain "this DEBACLE to the Imperious Leader."

Jonathan Harris was not enunciating clearly enough it seems!

Funny. The first time I saw this one, I heard and understood it to be "debacle". I thought JH's enunciation was fine. After all, he was trained in classical theater.
