Yeah, I got the impression she was the queen bee / religious head. I also was kind of turned off by the massive "pull out" shot that they did, as it was too reminiscent of Battlestar Galactica. It seemed like they copied the shot almsot exactly, just in reverse. Yes, it was nice to see the cliffhanger there, but that also makes whatever the resistance is doing seem kinda moot. It's obvious that the rest of the fleet is just waiting for the earth-ships to do whatever they are doing (pre-packaging their YV dinners or whatever), but honestly, if they have that many ships, just get it over with.
