We discuss this week’s action-packed ‘sode, jump on the first half of the season two-point-five cliffhanger, and (as always) take a number of listener calls. Highlights: we discuss the chances of Lil’ Adama landing (by choice?) in the same building with the gen-one Cylon, enjoy seeing the world briefly from a first-Cylon POV, wonder if maybe the gen-one Cylons are indeed smarter than the new ones, talk about Brother Cavil’s introduction and his possible role in BSG’s future, question the foreshadowing of the Chief’s dream (and wonder if Cavil didn’t “plant” it), and bust on Sci-Fi for the April release date decision.
Cottle’s rank is major. In the episode “Bastille Day”, Roslin asks Adama if there’s a physician on board and Adama answers that Major Cottle is checking on patients around the fleet.
By the way, Cottle doesn’t fit anywhere in the chain of command. He’s not a line officer. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_officer
