"The instruction booklet for The Legend of Zelda had these cel animation style drawings in it. We all assumed this game was based on an animated movie or something. We all created a different cartoon in our minds. There was no cartoon, the drawings in the instruction book were all there was. Your imagination works overtime to make sense of a world that was newly minted. Add to that the fact that it was from a country on the other side of the world. We were trying to parse a code that didn’t have a solution." -- Tom Scioli

Battlestar Galactica: Gods and Monsters #4 opened on a video being discussed.

The video was a suicide note, left by a human-type Cylon, an Eight.

She'd made it shortly before killing herself; in it, she'd claimed responsibility for the recent incident involving Tallos, Doctor Baltar's supposedly tame pet reconstructed Cylon Centurion.

The discussion turned to Tallos' actions during the incident- why had it acted to preserve its own life?

It was a Cylon, after all- " death " for it just meant transmission to a Resurrection Ship.

Doctor Baltar made a suggestion.

It was partly that of the Six in his head. )
