The Cylon Film Festival

Here are some screen captures of the poster behind Tyrol in the produce market. You can't really read the words reliably, but in the first two lines, it really seems like the last word is "Cylon" -- though there is some argument for "Colony"

In the next set of 3 lines, I see

A Celebration/Discussion ?? 7??? and ch?????? in the (eyes?) of the community.

Also look at another part of the poster:

And the image has the appearance of an angel/priest, wearing a Cylon centurion helmet of some sort.

Or I could be imagining things. But were the production crew having fun with the posters they put on the wall?

The yellowish poster is also interesting. Looks like a rock band poster with the 3 heads on the top. Anders' band? The two figures at the bottom are odd as well, the one at the left is either wearing Mickey-mouse ears, or has a strange shaped head.


I think that Film Festival poster the first line after the gap. The number is 757. Like BS-75 (Galactica), Kara's Viper (8757NC), the most obvious one is cylon types.

Everything is not as it seems. Or they are frakin with our heads with those posters, just cuz they can.

I think it's "A question of..." something, possibly "faith".

"life of the community"

"A question of [something] and [something] in the life of the community"?

How'm I doin?

You need to run this sequence through a software like: and it should become clear.

We'd be happy to help you out to see if we can enhance that text on the wall.

Just drop us a line.



I think it looks like this:

Even moreso, I think the version of the Five that Deanna saw in the Temple of Five look very similar to the Beings of Light from the original series. This poster definitely alludes to angels, what with the wings on each side of the figure. The series has more than once implied the presence of "angels" what with Virtual Six calling herself an "angel of God" and then the reference from the hybrid in Razor:

"At last, they’ve come for me. I feel their lives, their destinies spilling out before me. The denial of the one true path, played out on a world not their own, will end soon enough. Soon there will be four, glorious in awakening, struggling with the knowledge of their true selves, the pain of revelation bringing new clarity, and in the midst of confusion, he will find her. Enemies brought together by impossible longing, enemies now joined as one. The way forward at once unthinkable, yet inevitable. And the fifth, still in shadow, will claw toward the light, hungering for redemption that will only come in the howl of terrible suffering. I can see them all. The seven, now six, self-described machines who believe themselves without sin, but in time, it is sin that will consume them. They will know enmity, bitterness, the wrenching agony of the one splintering into the many, and then they will join the promised-land, gathered on the wings of an angel. Not an end, but a beginning."

As we all know RDM doesn't really throw away concepts from the original series, for the most part, he takes them and twists them. In both series, the location to Earth is revealed after someone has died and then returned, both cases involve Starbuck.
