Battlestar Galactica (2003 Miniseries) - Part 2 - S1-E2
Question: If Gaius Baltar created a way of detecting Cylons then why didn't he use it on either Galen Tyrol or Saul Tigh?
Chosen answer: Yes, he developed a way to test for Cylons. He even figured out Boomer was a Cylon, so we know it works. But in a later episode, he specifically tells Head 6 that he hasn't been doing the testing that he claims to have done because he actually prefers not to know, because it only breeds paranoia and fear. His opinion of Cylons is, after all, not typical.
Battlestar Galactica (2003 Miniseries) - Part 1 - S1-E1
Question: How and why did Number Six kill that baby on Caprica?
Chosen answer: Her motives are never explained. One possibility would be curiosity, a simple experiment in human infant physiology. Another, perhaps more likely one from her subsequent look of apparent distress is that it was, in an odd way, an act of mercy, giving an innocent baby a swift death, rather than leaving it to die in the nuclear fire or of radiation poisoning afterwards.
Question: Why does Number Six ask the Armistice Officer if he's alive?
Chosen answer: "I think, therefore, I am" - Descartes Both Six and the Armistice Officer are alive. What she is doing is pointing out the central theme of the show. Humans don't believe that the "toasters" are alive. But when asked to prove that they are alive, humans are as powerless to do so as the Cylons. This is because it is inherently unprovable. The show is pointing this out right from the very beginning. What is life? Who is alive? How can we possibly know? and most importantly, what gives us the right to decide who and what is alive?

Starbuck: Starbuck to all Vipers. Do not fire! Repeat: Do NOT fire! I am a friendly, okay? We're all friendlies...so let's just...be...friendly!
In the scene where Starbuck attempts to retrieve Apollo's arrow, a crewman in a red tee shirt and dark vest can be seen standing just behind and to the right of the display case as she is shooting out the glass.
Edward James Olmos (Commander Adama) plays a man involved in a search for dangerous androids who are nearly impossible to distinguish from humans. He played a man in a very similar situation in Blade Runner as Gaff. Amusing coincidence.
