Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from michaelangelo
Review:
Call me bonkers but can't the colonials and Cylons develop a jump capable nuke instead of the more risky Viper bomber to bypass shields? they could jump the things directly from the flight bay, it's like Andrew mentioned it's like they thought 'rockets work' and didn't even think of creating better delivery methods.

I bet Sam Zabuto isn't going to win any popularity contests with the Cylons now, if the Vamps are smart enough to use guns it's only a small step up to armor piercing rounds, grenades and rockets. I'm more surprised the Cylons agreed to do it in the first place, they should follow what the Roman Centurians did and develop some high tech metal Roman style shields.

I just hope Mr. Sam doesn't piss off Cordy enough for her to think about a repeat of the Twelve Colonies. On that note I can see Senator Kinsey doing such a stupid thing too.

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from proofreader
Review:
I don't know if it was intentional or not but the name is not Miramax Horn, it's Mirax. Plus, she kept the Terrik last name. This is straight from I, Jedi by Michael A. Stackpole. I do admit "Miramax" had me laughing from it coming from a supposed star wars geek.
Comments from author:
That was my goof, fixed now, i'm leaving the last name alone though.

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from Inquisitor
Review:
I remember that Buffy(Kristy Swanson) from the original movie did use hair spray for flamethrower against vampires but it was a short range weapon.

Was wondering about what had happened to the debris from Apophis Hataks when they had collided with each other. Remember that the stargates can survive being nuked from at least a couple of tv episode examples. Any extra ambient energy would had been absorbed and used by an active stargate just like they did with redirecting the Ori supergates. So even if the stargate that Daniel had used in the sg1 season2 premiere had the c4 explode beside it, the gate would still survive and just redirected its terminus to another stargate. As the Hataks had just collided with each other, at least the top half of the hataks would had survived and the closest celestial body is the moon and there wasn't a major meteorite impact on Earth, i can only assume that large debris from the Hataks had crashed on the moon or at least its dark side. The cylons should be busy recovering the crashed wreckage and even recovering intact technology like the Hataks' stargates.

Something to consider as a side effect of the chaos spell. Since making contact with the BSG Atlanta had caused it to become real from a possibility, wouldn't there be a temporal resolution effect that had traveled back in time that made the Colonial/Cylon fleet's arrival to Earth becoming real and being a part of Earth's history. It's like Schrödinger's cat paradox, to make the BSG Atlantia to exist in the present results that the possible state of the colonial/cylon survivors to arrive to Earth had just caused it to become real and a part of Earth's history. Remember that the last episodes of the series, the hyperspace jumps that they made had a temporal component in it. What if in reality Cordelia's Cylons were actually stragglers and were late in arriving to Earth and certain individuals had been created as a quirk of a temporal duplication/resolution effect. So whatever backstory bu115hi7 that Cordelia had made to let the SGC believe to explain their existance had really happened since the chaos spell had made that possible past into actual history. So if this is the case, are there real humanoid cylons walking around just like in the end of the nbsg series?

:Evil Grin: The Cylons are going to be part of this story, we just haven't seen them yet :Evil Grin: As for the Colonials and BioCylons... :Grin:
As for the Ha'tak's, it's an issue of manpower. Simply put Cordelia and Helo had ten centurions, two BioCylons and a colonial pilot. They know the stuffs out their but they don't have the manpower to start recovering it.

Review of chapter "18. High Tech isn’t an instant win button." from Vendoban
Review:
Awesome story! Despite me having never seen BattleStar I'm still able to keep up with the story.

Only peeve I have with the story is on the SGC side. The show didn't do a good job with the enlisted side of the ranks. The 'attention on deck' is Navy or Marine jargon, 'Room, tench-HUT' would be the proper phrase. I'd be more than happy to lend my aid for your story if you'd like (i'm currently active duty AF)

Review:
Something just occurred to me is Cordelia driving up the Vampire population and has she be infected with Colonial stupidity to not understand escalation.

Review of chapter "17. Enforced vacation and other sundry problems" from AndreaMaine
Review:
I think what the Cylons and Helo need about now is a little intervention by our favorite Roswell Gray, the Supreme Commander of the Asgard Fleet, Thor. I am sure that by now he knows of the presence of the Battlestar Atlantia in orbit behind Earth's moon after Asgard sensors are the best in the universe. I am sure Thor could help Cordelia, Sharon and their human allies come up with improvements to the Mercury-Class Battlestar that would for go the creation of the Prometheus-Class Battle Cruiser and the Daedalus-Class Deep Space Carrier. Of course Earth building their own Battlestar would do better with constructing a Jupiter-Class Battlestar like the Galactica, but with improvements provided by Thor. The names of the Earth Battlestars could be the names of the Stargate Command ships built in the series, Prometheus, Daedalus, Odyssey, Apollo, Korolev, Sun Tzu, George S. Hammond with other names to follow. I think the Jeng Hue, Ares, Ajax, Achilles, Intrepid, Indomitable, Illustrious, Victorious, Essex, and others would be good names for more Earth made Battlestars over the years. Also somewhere in her knowledge Cordelia should have the designs for the Basestars including the Cylon War of Independence era models along with the Second Cylon War era double Y shaped ones.

For the short term though Cordelia's correct, the Cylons should be teaching Earth to build a Viper that could be built using existing Earth based technology. Then the Cylons should teach them also to build a simpler form of Raptor, say one like Ensign William "Husker" Adama flew in "Blood and Chrome." The Earth built Raptor should have the capacity of either an UH-60 Blackhawk or a Mi-8 Hip. The UH-60 can haul twelve personnel an equal amount of cargo besides its air crew. I think the Mi-8 can haul twice the capacity of the UH-60 and is simpler to maintain. The Raptor the Cylons teach Earth to build should fill the role the UH-60 and its variants fill, but with the ease of maintenance of the Mi-8. The Raptor should be as soldier proof as an AK-47. What the Earth needs in spacecraft and starships are the robust soldier proof designs, not the fancy FN-2000 or FN P-90s of space fighters and shuttlecraft let alone larger ships like Battlestars. Earth starting with a lower technology base should build basically a simpler version of a Galactica, not a Mercury-Class like the Atlantia and Pegasus. Even a Valkyrie type Battlestar is too advanced for Earth to build at the time of this story. After all it is only like Autumn of 1997, not Autumn of 2010 (Stargate: Universe's debuts.) The time period is the time of Window 95, Office 97, and Mac OS 8 or 9. The Windows of the time as well as the Mac OS of the time would be far better than the equivalent Colonial OS, but the Cylon OS would be superior to the Earth OSes.

Review of chapter "17. Enforced vacation and other sundry problems" from Gideon
Review:
I see Sam Zabuto is coming up with some useful ideas. Using simple logic and experience to point to problems in later years with the Mayor and even Darth Willow. As long as he is still willing to talk to Buffy's "support structure" and not patronize them maybe they can learn some useful things from him.
I can see some eventual problems from Hammond talking to the British too. As soon as Brigadier Ethan talks to his family someone is going to realize that the Cylons have been lying about their previous contacts with the Watcher's council. I can't see the Council or even the SGC taking that revelation well if they find out!
Your explanation of how the Atlantia stacks up against the Gouald is a bit depressing too. They can't crew up and even if they could they would be no match for even a single H'tak. Very sad :(

Review of chapter "17. Enforced vacation and other sundry problems" from GenoBeast
Review:
“Brutally practical,” Cordelia said lightly. “It sounds like you Watchers care about the results more then the human part of the equation.”
-My main problem with the Watchers has never been that they use morally questionable methods at times but their propaganda and the fact they lie to the Slayer to meet their own goals. It is less about not burdening the Slayer with the truth but making their job easier.
-The Slayer would be considered a young girl in modern times but in the past when the first Slayer was made they would be considered adults married or going to be married soon. Then the whole slayer propecy sounds specifically targeted to make a young girl filled with hormones and uncertainty feel special, that without them the world would end and it is kind of funny considering just how big the world is and the fact one person can't handle all the darkness even if she has superpowers. Being seperated from family makes it easier for the Watchers to influence the young girl to the point she will sacrifice herself for others, while self-sacrifice to protect is noble the feat is lessened if a person merely does it because they were essentially told to sacrifice themself.

"...in my mind it is just a matter of time before one of you makes a potentially fatal or world ending mistake.” Sam admitted sadly. “You are still fundamentally teens, not adults.”
-This is funny considering it is very possible the Watchers will be the one that set them off the Cylon-Colonials.
-It seems Sam either does not understand the situation with Helo!Xander and Cordelia or does not like to admit maturity is not based within age entirely, it possible does not help the Cylon-Colonials have not hidden the fact they don't look at the Watchers Council too fondly and so are not subservient to their will.
