Thanks to Ron Moore, David Eick, Harvey Frand, Ron French, Mark Verheiden, Jane Espenson and the rest of the writing staff for managing to keep me engaged over four seasons. Thanks to all of the actors (especially Katee Sackhoff and Edward James Olmos – I completely lost it in the penultimate episode when he said that he knew who she was despite everything) for consistently selling me every single plot point. Thanks to Stephen McNutt and the visual effects team for making television science-fiction look better than it ever has before. In fact, thanks to everyone who worked on the show. It was obviously a series where craft and heart merged well, and the fact that plot sometimes took backseat to the story couldn’t make me happier.
I can’t imagine a show having a better finale, one that ensured that story conquered all and that all of the characters I’ve come to care about had the sendoff they deserved. While they may not have answered all of the plotholes that beancounting fans have demanded be handled, humanity triumphed, which means more to me than anything else.
