Summary

It's the final battle as the Aethership Galactica and its allies take the fight to Baltar! Can this rag-tag collection of survivors defeat the mighty Cylonic Empire? And what happens when one of Galactica's allies betrays everyone? Who lives, and who dies? Come with us as #1 New York Times bestselling author Tony Lee brings this miniseries to a shattering conclusion![1]

Plot

Notes

  • The phrase "So say we all" is exclusively germane to the Re-imagined Series. As common with most Dynamite Comics installments, some Re-imagined Series terminology integrates itself into the stories and comics related to the Original Series continuities. As 1880 is a variation in the Battlestar Galactica multiverse, its use here is not entirely glaring.
  • The reason for the Ovions hostile nature towards humanity, which began the Ovion Wars and lead to the creation of the Cylonics, is never stated.
  • This issue makes note of a "Thirteenth Colony" (e.g. Earth), the first instance where 1880 ties into the general Battlestar mythology. It is noted by Adama as being a "lost part of the Empire that needs to be gathered back."

Analysis

Questions

Noteworthy Dialogue

This is possibly the last speech I will ever give, so be gentle with me. Professor Baltar almost eradicated the human race. Only a few colonies survive. But he's weak. He's spent too much energy and now the time to end him has come.
I say now--we are the Colonial Empire, and we refuse to bow to Cylonic tyranny. The last aethership Galactica may lead a rag-tag fugitive fleet on a hopeless quest of vengance--but we'll make galmonging sure that we finish the job. So say we all!
Boomer: Get in. Log on. Kill Cylonics. Sounds easy, doesn't it?
Jolly: Sounds like suicide, Boomer.
Boomer: Ah well, you never wanted to live like this, did you? I mean, it's a nightmare to shower.
Jolly: And I snag the arm on my uniform sleeve constantly. Until the next life, Lieutenant.
Lu-c-fer: Hello, father.
Iblis: You've been a bad babbage computer, Lu-c-fer. Daddy's going to have to give you a spanking now.
Starbuck: You got stabbed with a fishbowl? Man, I'd hate to be you when I tell everyone.
Apollo: Starbuck... why did you... leave? The... Galactica that is?
Starbuck: I was in love with your sister, but your father wouldn't allow it. I was told to give up--or leave. And I could never give her-- (Cylonics appear) -- ah, felgercarb. I knew it was too good to last.
  • Athena discovers Iblis has uploaded himself into the babbage computer:
Athena: Lu-c-fer! Stop this immediately!
Iblis: You're too late princess! Lu-c-fer is gone! I control the Cylonics now! This is the Age of Iblis! And there's nothing you can do about it! I've shed my human form and entered the aether! Pure energy! God incarnate! And my Cylonics? Fully functional and eager to kill for me!
