OM - The World is Ending The world is ending. You are in charge of planetary evacuation. Aside from your friends, family, and loved ones, you must decide who to save -- you can only save five people. Who are they and why do you save them?
The world has ended how many times already?
Dad told me how he met Mom, and what it was like when he was ECO with Boomer. It's odd, because it's almost like Boomer is my aunt, I guess? I don't know what to call her. The black sheep of the family?
Whatever it was, he was with her on Caprica (this was all before he met Mom, though), and all these people saw their Raptor and ran for it, trying to get onboard to be saved. They didn't know who to save – how do you pick? Are the women and children really that much more important than the men?
That seems sort of old-fashioned to me.
But in the end, that's what they did, sort of. The kids got to go, and then everyone got handed a number and Dad and Aunt Boomer just pulled it out of a hat. It was all random, so I guess what I'm saying is, did they save the right people? Did the leave the wrong people to die? Because one of the people they ended up saving was Gaius Baltar.
That was only because Dad was stupid, though, and gave up his own seat for him. Of course, if he hadn't done that, he would never have met Mom, and I never would have been born.
I don't know. I don't have a better plan. If the Cylons found us and tried to destroy us, aside from Mom and Dad, I'd save Joseph, Anne, their parents, and Admiral Adama, I guess. It leaves out Ms. Roslin and a bunch of others, though, so it doesn't seem right to make a list of only five people.
Maybe Dad had the right idea, after all.
