I recently won some Ebay scripts (Scattered & Valley of Darkness), and realized that often some "important" scenes had been initially written very differently than the aired version. Here, we have Six (and Doral) shocked by what Kara did to the Raider ("she lobotomized him" - it's rather ironic, considering S4 - oh well, S4 is crap), Doral begs Kara not to shoot at Sharon, and Sharon herself behaves slightly differently ( "me being pregnant is a lot more important to... to all of us... than you, Galactica, your stupid arrow --- anything" ) . No "bitch took my ride" at the end. Helo and Kara are "swapping" Sharon for the arrow of Apollo, and leave.
At this time, Cylons were still "innocent children", with alien/different good/bad values. S3 destroyed this.

When I find the time, I'll post some pages.

PS: Boomie is "herself", in the script: "How is Commander Adama" & [relieved] "Then he's alive. Thank the Gods. You should kill me now. Before anything else---" [Tigh punches her]

Wow, that's even more rude! :shock:

Has there ever been anyone who tried to do the right thing and got nothing but grief for it more than Boomer? At least people were nice to Gaeta until his little mutiny.

People were nice to Gaeta? They tried to chuck him out an airlock, Blanders shot him, Helo let him lose his leg, Tigh called him all sorts of names......

But they did feel bad about it. ;)

Nobody ever felt bad about dumping on Boomer.

Rather a lot of his fellow crewmembers risked their lives to support him overthrowing The Old Man. I'd say that was rather nice of them. I doubt Boomer could have raised even a single squad of supporters after Kobol's Last Gleaming (despite the huge percentage of the RTF whose lives she alone saved during the miniseries) unless, of course, she were recruiting on the good ship ATS.

I don't think they were so much supporting Gaeta as defending their fear and hate of the Cylons. All of the "supporters" we saw were the people who were, well, Cylon-haters, flaming losers (AND Cylon-haters) or the twelve people who weren't main cast or related to Edward James Olmos.

Like the one who puked in Boomer's Raptor (oh, another frakking human she saved) in You Can't Go Home Again? :lol:

No. Not even close. Everyone hated Boomer...humans and cylons alike. Right up until the end. And I for one don't think the writers allowed her any dignity or redemption even in the way she died.

Except The Chief, and the writers frakked him over almost as bad as they did her.

Actually, I don't think Helo hated Boomer, or we were never shown him hating her. I would wager after the stealing Hera thing that he began to, but even in the Daybreak scene in the hall, he looks more wary than angry at her- his whole focus is on Hera, and he doesn't look particularly happy about her being shot.

The Chief hated himself so much, was there really room for anyone else?

But what if she didn't die. ;)

I guess that's a shameless plug for "Sometimes a Stupid Notion" in the fanfic.

Although she herself still thought she was a human - or at least hoped like hell she was - when this happened.

Yes. Let's say she still was a human. Later, she became a Cylon.
