    An amalgamate is a verb for amalgam which means "to combine as a new entity" so Dr. Baltar is referring to the half human/cylon in Sharon as one.

    DC and Marvel had a joint venture and created Alamgamation where they took to Marvel and DC characters and comined them. I remember Superman being merged with Captain America and he was Super America, or something.

    Definately something else than a gas station. :)

    Also don't give the word amalgamate any special distinction other than it is in fact a combination of a human and a cylon. Dr. Baltar, being a scientist, would use that word in place of half-breed not for fear of it being misunderstood for a derogatory racial but that the Cylon "race" is not considerd a race. But toasters.

    Well I tried a little experiment...[face_thinking]

    I went into the kitcken and looked at the family toaster. I begged it not to kill me. I held it gently and cradled it. I spoke sweet nothings to it. I said to my family toaster you are not just a machine. But a thing made of star stuff...just like me. Further I told the family toaster it deserves to live. It deserves to make a life for itself beyond the hardships of burning my toast in the morning. I took the family toaster to the front door. There I opened said door. I then took the family toaster to the front yard. I placed it in the snow. I went back inside the house. Before I shut the front door I took one last look at the family toaster. Now it may have been the tears in my eyes or light glinting off the snow, but that beloved family toaster seemed a little bit more shiny. Yes more shiny and more happy. And just maybe my small gesture of toaster emancipation will circulate. Maybe I helped prevent a terrible war between Humans and Machines. Yes I may have helped us avoid a calamity that would make Maximum Overdrive look like a bad afterschool special. Goodbye my toaster. Goodbye my friend.

    Back to the topic of BG...

    I have posted my theory about Baltar's invisible Six being the revised version of Iblis onto a BG fansite. There has been a fair amount of shocked skepticism. You know the old "oh my god that's not true!" type statements. But some more astute viewers/readers have said I do have a convincing body of evidence. Like for example the Six Baltar knew on Caprica was named NATASI. You turn that name around and you get I SATAN. And that boys and girls was who Iblis was in the classic show. Gender change is nothing new in this version of BG. The Iblis entity has adopted the form of Baltar's Six so it can better manipulate him. You can find my posts about this topic at...

    galacticastation.com

    Look for items by...

    IblisIsNatasi

    I just love a good debate.

    :D

    CIC ANNOUNCEMENT:

    Latest Internet 'scuttlebutt' is that a BG spin-off show is in the early stages of development.

    The working title for the potential series is Battlefield Caprica. It is to follow the adventures of the Human Insurgency Movement on the Human colony world of Caprica. The leader of this movement to reinsert Human dominance is none other than Classic BG actor Dirk Benedict (played the male Starbuck). The character he is to play has a code name. It is 'Father'. Seems the episodes from the BG series dealing with the H.I.M. were foreshadowing for this spin-off series.

    Now keep in mind this is Internet 'scuttlebutt'. Not official news from Sci-Fi Channel. However it does seem to fit a hint from six months ago. SFC was in talks with Mr. Benedict's agent regarding a possible role on the Revised BG. If that indeed happened then maybe this Battlefield Caprica might come to be. It certainly sounds like a viable plan. The original Stargate is aging. The Altantis series is so-so. Might Revised BG be followed by it's own spin-off? Time will tell.

    IN OTHER NEWS...

    Have you heard the word that Japan has an infestation/invasion of giant Jellyfish-like creatures? No joke.

    Sorry, still having disturbing toaster fantasies with a fresh loaf of dakota bread from Golden Harvest and a pound of honey-butter. After which our chrome-plated offspring burst forth and subdue those evil low-carb dieters.

    Did you see the one where they were all in the space ships and it was all PEW PEW PEW and some stuff blew up, but it was in space so it was all pew pew pew (not that loud). And then that guy got blowed up, and it was all, OMG! Is he dead? But, he wasn't. And then that big thing just went PERKSH-POW and it was on fire!?

    That was cool. Yah.
