Answers for Questions

We have a new policy regarding answers in the questions section. Please refrain from adding answers otherwise it will be considered vandalism. Shane (T - C - E) 13:45, 8 November 2006 (CST)

Answers that do not relate to the episode "Torn" should not even belong in the episode guide, in which your data related to future events. The should be included in "A Measure of Salvation" episode guide, but that episode has yet to be aired which would negate the information based on the BW:CITE policy. Shane (T - C - E) 13:53, 8 November 2006 (CST)
Also of note is the spoiler policy, regarding unaired and "future" information. Stuff that RDM says IS canon, generally, but until airing it's also a "spoiler". --Steelviper 14:08, 8 November 2006 (CST)

Podcast Info

Was your latest podcast info addition to "A Day in the Life" from the "Editing Session" podcast, or the regular one? I haven't yet been able to find an active link to the regular one yet. --Steelviper 08:49, 21 February 2007 (CST)

BW:SAC#Questions_Section

Sections 2 apply to a lot of the questions you put in Dirty Hands. The questions answered in the episode were:

  • Has the respect and admiration for Admiral Adama been decreasing ever since his speech in "Unfinished Business"?
  • Is there a difference between the tylium that was seen being pumped into Racetrack's raptor and the refined tylium that was shown being stockpiled within the refinery ship after it was processed?
  • Besides the CAP that was allowed to proceed, what are the other operations, such as the one Starbuck was planning on doing focused on?
  • Did Tyrol or Starbuck pull any strings that allowed Seelix to become a viper "nugget"?
  • Is Cally holding onto any grudges towards Admiral Adama?
  • Did the tylium that was pumped into Racetrack's raptor truly had major impurities that were not filtered out at the refining ship or did one of the knuckle draggers, the one who had a copy of Baltar's book, intentionally introduced the impurities into the fuel line?
  • Considering how Roslin was arresting anyone who had this book in possession, why did one of the knuckle draggers leave Baltar's book out in the open public on top of tools for Tyrol to find?

Question 1 in this list is assumned. Which violates BW:FAN. refined tylium question is answered when Tyrol goes over to the refinery ship. CAP question - Adamara states "FTL" jumps. Tyrol clearly pulled some strings with Roslin. Cally points this out to herself in the hangerbay. The last question was answered during the talk with Baltar and Tyrol.

Some of the questions removed were really answered in the episode already. For example, there is of course a difference in the tylium. The white powder stuff is raw, unrefined tylium.
But in general, this might be a case of less being more. I think it's better to concentrate on the really meaty questions, instead of just adding over a dozen ones, many of which are frankly not that interesting or overly rethoric. --Serenity 11:28, 26 February 2007 (CST)

Standards and Conventions

I noticed that you make two formatting errors. The first is not putting ship names in italics. The second is not capitalizing "Viper" or "Raptor". "Battlestar" isn't capitalized because it's a general ship type. But Viper or Raptor is more like a class-name, such as "F-18 Hornet". --Serenity 10:03, 13 March 2007 (CDT)

Racetrack

Sorry, but your edit was just wrong. It's not that she literally escape death (that only happens in "Crossroads" and "Dirty Hands"). In "Kobol's Last Gleaming" she urges Boomer to get out of the basestar when it doesn't go exactly as planned, but the two aren't in immediate danger. "Occupation" might not actually be a good example at all, since there isn't really trouble. In "Torn", they find the basestars and before she even verifies their status she wants to jump out. So she doesn't escape immediate death in those episodes. If people want to think it's cowardly, why shouldn't they? People will think what they want, but as you said it can be interpreted otherwise as well. --Serenity 09:45, 20 March 2007 (CDT)
