Cavatar writes: “The Number 3 never set off the nuke on New Caprica after Baltar found Hera, and if the Cylons left New Caprica after the humans fled, then it might be safe to assume that they have no reason to return. I bring this up because my question is: Did all the humans make if off of New Caprica? Was it possible that a thousand or so were left behind?
“This might be a stretch, but is there a chance that there could be humans there still trying to rebuild the civilization there? If you assume that Earth has forgotten about Kobol, the algae planet, andtheir true roots, then it might be safe to assume that in two or three generations the surviving population of the 12 colonies might forget about the brief time they spent on New Caprica.
“Could there be a human population from New Caprica 2,000 years from now trying to find Galactica or Earth when their AI rises up against them? Would the people of New Caprica 2,000 years from now think that the Galactica was a myth, or that it was assuredly destroyed by the Cylons and thus looking for it would seem as futile as looking for Earth did in Season One? I mean, like the scriptures tell us: It has all happened before and will happen again.
“Could we even see a story arc on the survivors of New Caprica that were left behind next season?”
