OK, there are people out there on the interwebs proposing that the "fundamental difference" between the Special 7 and the Final 5 is that the FF cannot resurrect. This seems especially stupid to me.

I mean, if there is only one copy of the FF, how is it that they all (well, at least 4 of them) survivied the original attack? Tigh & the Chief were on Galactica, Anders was on Caprica, and one assumes Tori was on Colonial One with Laura. How convenient that they all somehow managed to survive the genocide.

It stretches the bounds of credulity to me.

Will of God? Or the conscious or unconscious plan of the cylons that opening credits keep assuring us they have? Anders "knew" the attack was coming and so picked that week for altitude training for the C-Bucks. Tigh "knew" the attack was coming but that Galactica wasn't networked and therefore would be better able to survive it. Tori/Billy "knew" they'd be coming home from the decomissioning ceremony and therefore away from the brunt of the main attack.

I haven't come down on the do they/don't they resurrect debate, but if they do, then there's something different about how they do it vs. the seven... because otherwise Three could have just popped over to the Resurrection ship and taken a look at the storerooms full of new bodies and satisfied her curiosity that way.

Also, assuming Adama's not a cylon, then at least one of the final five has been around for a long while. What if the development of Cylon technology went: the first skinjobs (final five) THEN the goo bath and assorted resurrection technology THEN the seven?

Also, that entire first paragraph was some massive fan-wanking, yikes.

Also, how does Tigh influence his superiors to assign him to the "right" ship. Goes for Chief as well.

Do we know that there are "storerooms full of new bodies?" We don't really know how resurrection works, perhaps the hardware and software are both created together during the goo bath.

As to boxing Three...I've always wondered how they managed to get every single copy back to the resurrection ship. One of them might have slipped through. Maybe that's what the final 4 are....yet again, surviving the genocide thing....

"storerooms full of new bodies?"

I was basing that on the recon pictures Kara took of the Resurrection ship that show row after row of Sixes. Plus, the idea of spare Cavils piled up like firewood makes me giggle a little.

I forgot about that...sorry...
