When I Hie to Kolob

The QandO Blog spots an apparent continuity error in the revised Battlestar Galactica. But then, Glen A. Larson was a Mormon so the blunder might not be irretrievable.

The thing is, the humans in the series aren't from earth. They have their own religion, which worships the Lords of Kobol, who, interestingly, are named Zeus, Hera, Athena, Apollo, etc. So, apparently, the deal is that the lost 13th colony, Earth, bought the knowledge of the Lords of Kobol to Earth, when everybody migrated away from Kobol, way back in the dim mists of the past, and the LoKos were transmogrified into the gods and goddesses of Greek myth.

OK, it's an interesting conceit.

Or, at least it was, until Colonel Tigh blurts out in one dramatic scene, "Send down a search party for Chrissakes!"

"Moon-men, (Brigham) Young teaches us, dress like Quakers." Quite right, too.
