Yes, but...
Apollo has been conditioned by a whole lifetime at war to be perhaps what we might see as overly cautious/suspicious, regarding the Cylons. After all, Equellus is not that far from Colonial/Cylon space, as the low-warp crow flies. That, and after what's happened to him in the last few sectons, he may not be thinking at 100%.

Certainly his comment after Vella says "You did the right thing", "I'm not so sure" makes him realize that he hasn't approached this right. What doesn't get brought out enough and could be done in a stronger version is that he has to feel some responsibility for Bootes' death because of his cautiousness (and this might be another reason why Apollo would decide not to say anything about this experience after he gets rescued).

Good point. Essentially, he sees himself as having screwed up badly, and only pulled the fat out of the fire by ridding the place of Red-Eye.
I still wonder about Vela...

Funny that, it always seemed to me that Apollo's biggest regret was having to reinforce to Puppus that the best way to solve a problem was through the use of violence. It was his parental instinct to teach more effective problem solving than "--or, son . . . you could shoot him".

Just in case you never found the Adam Stacey fics, Sen. My personal favourites are the Undefeated Trilogy.

I used to know Adam quite well on the very first Galactica mailing list I was part of. He in fact was one of two inspirations to get me to write further fanfic in those early years and we even exchanged ideas way back when. Unfortunately, he dropped out of sight for a few years and when he resurfaced it was as a fan of that other entity and with no inclination whatsoever to resume his interrupted storyline since he regarded the original series as a thing to be cast aside like a childhood memory whereas that other entity was somehow the thing for the 21st century.

A shame.

He still wrote some damn fine fanfic though. Even if he lost his way somewhere beyond the heavens . . . WAY beyond the heavens, evidently.

Maybe he slipped into the Void, on the way back from Kobol...

Question...does anyone think that, before leaving Equellus, Apollo and Vela did the dirty deed? Her attitude and demeanor after he is gone is so different from what it was throught the whole ep. It's as if she has at last had some joy in her life.
Anyone?

Nah. I think if they'd made love then she would have been far more emotional about his leaving. It seemed more about "what could have been" than what was. And I think Apollo is too honourable to get involved with a woman who just lost her brother, and then fly away to rejoin the fleet.

Maybe they did, but she knew she couldn't change him and keep him there with her. Sometimes just a memory of a great moment is enough to give life some sense. She probably thought he was a great man, but just wasn't made for her.

I'd say no too. Just not enough time for that to have happened.

Yeah. I guess you're right. Too many things to put right in so little time. Maybe she was just happy to have met him, but nothing really could come out of that. Anyway, she has a new life ahead of her, and not just her but all the others that feel free, because of what he did.
