Hands up who is actually surprised that the ship that has been going for millions of years without fail suddenly begins to fail once the humans show up. Same old motif. I will give this one a few more episodes to get better but I am already losing interest.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I think the premise behind the failures is that when they arrived they required high power systems that were unnecessary before. Still I like it, it has the right mix of drama and comedy.

mind you, system failing, and power failing, is also what happened in the first couple of episodes of atlantas, as the nosey cast had to turn eveything on with out thinking...........lol. but i am surprised that no-one has yet gone to check the state of the engine room, or checked all the boxes that was already on board when they arrived to see what stores where already on board

I'm still waiting for SOMETHING to happen. The "Oh no, the power's gone and we're gunna DIE!" can only go on so long, as if they'd kill off the whole cast near the beginning of the season. Hands up- Who thinks they're going to die horribly when the ship "crashes into a star"? Be a Hell of a season finale, but now, at the beginning of a season? Sheesh...

The ship is sentient... and of ancient design- if it ends up flying directly at a star because of an 'accident' then it's pretty obvious it meant to... even at the end of a series that wouldnt be terribly suspenseful (mebbe it would be if enemies forced the ship intot he star through damage or need to escape...)

In my opinion when the ship was flying around that gas giant it was more or less the same camera angles BSG would use, and has anyone thought that the Destiny could be a giant solar pannel? If it was unmanned they couldn't stop everywhere to get new energies afterall.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

i must admit, when i watched last night, and the ship done a close sling shot pass the gas giant, i did wonder if it was collecting gas's and the like for rechargeing its power surply, and now its heading for the sun, could that be the final stage for re-powering its systems?

Am I the only one that noticed the constant screen time given to the well endowed female spec ops in cold rooms with tight tops on. Not that I'm complaining mind.

I must say so far only THREE of the charecter's have any interesting traits... them being

1.T.j. (Other then being really good looking, she is interesting!)
2.Eliee (Come on computer nerd in space = pricelessly Inept, and going to be PISSEEEEED when he finds out cloye is into the LT)
3.Young. Being in command he is rather Funny! and the assault rifle for a cain? Who doesn't love that! (can you say another o'neill in the works)

On the other hand there are 3 characters that need to be beat with a stick till they GET interesting and not annoying as all hell.

1.RUSH!!! Yes he is the super smart guy....But he is a prick!! and knows waaay more then he is telling anyone.

2.Geer......or what ever his name is....a phsyco-marine with a huge gun! wooooo very interesting there -.- (Can anyone say ford rip off?)

3.Scott. The guy is two timeing two of the female chars...One being a marine that is more buff then he is...the other an emmotinaly challanged 23 year old!!! this will not end well.
