CYCLE: RINSE, REPEAT

If the brain-trust of Battlestar Galactica is going to tie up all the story threads by the end of the series they must explain the oft-used refrain, "All of this has happened before and all of it will happen again." We have also been told that the same people will play different roles in future cycles.

So maybe Cylon Centurions will look like this at some point? And the Final Five will all end up like Crispy Kara?

The major conundrum I've found with BSG reimagined creator Moore's approach to the story is his insistence that the characters and their relationships are central to the story. If the mythology of the story is that people are interchangeable as each new iteration unfolds, is this not an inherent contradiction?


You wo
uld think that one of these people trapped in this cycle would attempt to break it, to create an anomaly in the waveform. Oop, she got written out.

All of this bitching has happened before, and all of it will happen again (at least 3 more times).
