Now that we have found out the final Cylon it still doesn't answer the question of Who/What is "Starbuck"?

Quote:
The facts:

1.) There are supposed to be only five final cylons and they have been found an known now.

2.) Kara's Viper was seen exploding by Apollo in the Nova.

3.) Kara Found her Own Dead Body on Earth inside her burned up Viper. How did it get their for her too find since it was seen exploding before it could have made it to "Earth"?

4.) The Hybrid On the Cylon Rebel Ship Told Kara That She was "the Harbinger of death you will lead them all to their death"


Now what is she and who is behind it all.

Is #1 behind it all due to his hatred of the final 5?

Is she a clone?

Is she a unknown Cylon model? (this seams very unlikely IMO)

Who made and put the coordinate to earth in Karas NEW Viper?

Since we don't know what do you think she is?

-Daughter of Daniel (aka #7). Half Cylon. That is If Daniel isn't, or doesn't have anything to do with, Baltar.
Daniel was some sort of great artist, and so was Kara and her father. Kara's father was both a music composer and a painter.

-Something to do with the faith and prophesy aspects, of which I don't have a clue about.

I don't think it is a Daniel thing personally although i do think he will have some sort of part in the end (or not) Due to the fact that #1 knows a lot more than we thought i think it could be part of his doing. I think there are several ways they can explain it but i hope we find out tomorrow! There are ways to explain all 3 she is the half cylon daughter of the original daniel? She is a clone created by #1 to show the humans earth and how it was not what they expected. Or she is a Cylon as she somehow remembers Earth although there is no way she could have been there before it was nuked? I cant be sure of any of these options but am interested. She also has Cylon like "visions" but so did the President and she is not cylong (this is supposed to be attributed to her halucinagenic cancer treatment?) I am not sure and just wanted to see what others think. The fact tha Daniel is just mentioned before they reveal Karas Origin. I Just Dont know and cant wait to find out

I now have no idea what she is as she seams linked to (Daniel #7) as possibly her father although that does not explain how she saw hew own dead body and has no memory of (downloading to a new body or anything not even her death) So still a mystery but her hallucinations of the piano player is clearly either something to do with her being crazy or something cylon. I still dont know

For as long as I've been following this show with other fans (I came in before Season 3), I've been able to conceive of theories on many of the mysteries of this series. Now, I don't know what my track record is, but I think I've been doing fairly good. But that's a moot point because this is one oddity that I have not even been able to muster a single idea on. I'm dumbf***ed. But I'm sure that when the issue is addressed to whatever degree, I will be gobsmacked.

A couple of things to note: in his podcast for "Islanded in a Stream of Stars", Ron Moore debunked the Daniel theories. It's unusual, but I think he believes they were getting out of control. I, for one, never really took wanking to the concepts of Number Seven's potential role. I easily accepted the character's note as nothing more than dual execution of both explaining the absence of the number in the sequence of existing Cylon models and providing Cavil with some back story of wickedness. I was surprised to hear Moore illustrate it so close to how I thought of it in his podcast for "No Exit". Amazingly, despite no mention before, or even of anything since, the Daniel notions continued and I'm sure there are some clinging to them even in light of Moore's pardoning it.

Another thing is one of the promotional images that were released for the second "Daybreak" episode that I added to its gallery. In one of them (the 7th), you can see Adama, Caprica-Six, and Baltar taking note of some unidentified person in the foreground. Even though there are no clearly indicators, the shape of their head and hair makes me think it's Kara. Certainly not the one we've been following throughout Season 4 nor the one who took a nosedive into the dense, bone-crushing heart of a gas giant and wound up a charred corpse on Earth (assuming they're the same people, mind you). The simultaneous confused, shocked, and fearful looks on Six's and Baltar's faces would fit into such a revelation.

I will say that some theories that have been floating around make me wonder if people are really paying attention to this show. To me, the concept of she being a Cyclone (let that sink in), is kind of clichéd and doesn't follow the reality of this show. Whatever she is, I'm sure it's deeply rooted in something very spiritual. It has to be connected to the journeys Number Three took (there's even a fairly verbatim description used for both she and Kara's trips to the brink of death), which, of course, is tied into the Final Five - which is furthered when you realise that she popped up in the Ionian nebula the point in which their musical trigger hit its zenith. Then, of course, "Someone to Watch Over Me" tied Hera into all of this. She's connected to the Cylons, but I don't think it's as superficial or technical as so many are putting it out there to be.
