Ok, it’s driving me crazy and I’ve gotta ask: what’s with the Hybrid? I want so badly to know more about this woman/machine/fembot in the bathtub of goo. I suspect as soon as we get back to the D’Anna Biers storyline and explore her forays between life and death a little more, we’ll also see more of the Hybrid.
Some theories: the Hybrid is the original prototype the Cylons (Centurions?)built when trying to add biological/organic elements to themselves, either to enhance their own species or create a new one. I think that they experimented with various methods and the Hybrid was the first viable result, maybe the firstone that could live on its own. We’ve speculated before about the Cylonz’ motivations and goals in creating the flesh models. It seems they thought they would be closer to perfection – or closer to God – by becoming biological. If their theology indicates that God created man first, and man created Cylons, then maybe they’re trying to take what they feel is their rightful place, closer to God, and replacing the humanssince weruined the chance God gave us. It’d be like, if after Adam and Eve got kicked out of Eden, the animals in Eden figured out a way to combine their genetic material into human-like form. Then they turned into the modern humans and Adam and Eve were never heard from again. Hell, maybe we all evolved from the animal experiments. 😉
Enough of my speculations. But I am interested that the Hybrid vocalizes what seem to be computer codes, or some kind of mechanical language. I think she is the clue to the science (or magic explanation) behind how digital data becomes organic material in BSG, and therefore the key to the creation of the original flesh Cylons.
