Galactica Quorum #77 – “Caprica”

We delve into the Caprica movie and ponder how well it fits in the Battlestar Galactica universe, from production design to technology to story continuity.  We scrutinize the hedonistic Virtual Club and the teen angst genesis of the Cylons–do the Cylons truly have Artificial Intelligence?

We consider where the series could go, and reveal some potential future storylines from key scenes that were only in the script.

Come see us at Balticon! It runs May 22-25, and our live panel will be on May 24, at 7pm.

  1. I’m only a little over halfway through your Caprica podcast and have several issues with your nit-picks. First, the Cylon Grayson demonstrated to the Prime Minister has an AI modeled after the processor he had stolen. Your discussion gave the impression that you thought it was using the Zoe processor; you assumed the first Cylons were built by Grayson using a human consciousness (at least that’s how it sounded to me).
    I think the Zoe Cylon will not be the creator of future skin jobs, but will contribute toward the resurrection technology.
