Tonight is the end of a great Sci-Fi series. It's been a tremendous ride and a great triumph for Ronald D. Moore, all the other very talented writers, actors and everyone else that worked on the show. The look and feel of the space drama was intense and as suffocating to us as it was to the crew. The plot line is really about how people interact on the confined spaces of a battleship out at sea. Only the great blue waters are now the infinite wonders of space.

The Los Angeles Times went further, praising "Battlestar's" ability "to anchor fantasy with vivid and recognizable human psychology." It declared the cult hit "a significant piece of television."
So as the countdown to the frackkin' end continues and fans fire through possible finale endings we ask you this: What will you do now that your Friday night sci-fi fix is heading into oblivion?
