Battlestar Galactica may find Earth in season four

Variety online is reporting that the television show Battlestar Galactica will come to a close at the end of the fourth (next) season. Season four will consist of twenty-two episodes. Hopefully they will run concurrently and not in the split-season format that irritated viewers the previous seasons.

It’s inevitable; the crew has to either find Earth or not. The story arc has a (historically) well defined start to finish. I knew that the show couldn’t last forever, but I hope that they will have enough time to tie up all the loose ends.

Things I am particularly interested in finding out about:

  1. Is Starbuck a Cylon or not?
  2. Will the Cylon-human babies have some sort of heightened potential? I am afraid they are going to have to pull a V and make the baby grow at an accelerated rate if they want to demonstrate anything in a single season.
  3. I’d really like to know more about the hybrids, what Lucy Lawless’ character saw, and if she’s going to escape from her boxing.
  4. The relationship between Baltar and Six — are they figments of each others’ imaginations, or is there some sort of telepathy/psychic bond going on?
  5. Why can’t the skinjobs have their own children? I’m guessing it’s a page from Robotech, and the answer is “twuu wuv.”
  6. Are Admiral Adama and President Roslin going to get it on?
  7. Will we get to see who the Cylon god is?
  8. I’m still holding out for a “classic” Cylon to make an appearance. A gold centurion model acting as the Cylon god would just be fifty pounds of awesome.

Ah well. All good things must come to an end. I just hope that BSG goes out in a hail of machinegun fire and toaster bits.
