It's all kinds of spoilery... - - -

This is a spoiler, of course...

There seems to be a lot of confusion & mix-ups about the general plot / timeline of the universe so I am going to try my best to explain this: On Kobol : Humans Naturally evolve (as far as we know) and 12 "tribes" of humans exist, who create their own Cylons (becoming the 13th tribe) This is where "Man & Gods" lived in Paradise The Gods mentioned ...

I don't remember where I read this, but the producers wanted a futuristic feel, due to the advanced technology (such as spaceflight, the Cylons, and some other technologies), but they also wanted this to feel like it was in the past. That was both because, if you've seen all of Battlestar Galactica, you know it's about 150,000 years before now, but also to ...

Ronald D. Moore spoke about the re-using of actors from BSG in Caprica. Although he doesn't specifically reference human-form cylons, the clear implication is that casting decisions are an out-of-universe decision and that fans shouldn't read any special significance into it. Is the re-using of actors from Battlestar in Caprica, is it a direct reference ...

According to the original BSG there was a natural disaster that forced the 13 tribes to leave Kobol. 12 of the tribes were human & left for the 12 colonies, whilst simultaneously the 13th tribe left for earth. The 13th tribe were created by humans as living robots. There was a Nuclear war on Cylon Occupied earth of which the final five recreated ...

There was a whole Next time on Caprica at the end of the series in which:

The series did reach a conclusion - there is definitely an ending to most of the storylines that are introduced throughout the series. However, they do leave some plots open - partly in hope of being picked up for a second season - but many other series leave similar open endings (for example, The 4400). In short, the series reaches a conclusion - but if ...

Here is my take ... Humans on Kobol invent Humanoid Cylons. There is a Cylon and Humans conflict. 12 tribes leave for Caprica one tribe leaves for Earth (humanoid Cylons). The tribe on Earth creates mechanized Cylons. The Mechanized Cylons destroy Earth. The final five recreate Resurrection and travel to Caprica. It takes them a freaking long time because ...

My understanding is that the twelve colonies were all founded, at the same time, by refugees from Kobol, with the assistance of the Lords of Kobol. I never heard anything to suggest that they were ever out of contact with each other. This is distinct from the Thirteenth colony, which went off in the other direction, and lost contact with the Twelve very ...

The reason Kobol was destroyed was due to the fact that it had become decadent and technology run amok, gluttony. When the 13 tribes left kobol, 12 tribes settled on twelve planets to become the 12 colonies of kobol. The 12 tribes were human... The 13th were human created cylons. Direct memory transfer (resurrection) originated from Kobol. When the 13th ...
