Ok, I've got the pictures up now.  There were hardly any released, apparently because of spoilers.  (Parallel universe, woohoo!! :woohoo: :lol:)  

Anyway, so I threw in a BTS pic from Joe's blog at the end.  :)

Ah, so we do get a parallel universe. Cool.  That's what I was hoping for.

That last picture is cute.  :lol:

So, do we think alt-verse "Corso" (who almost certainly hitch-hiked across, allowing the show to keep the actor) is Jace Corso or Derrick Moss?

I mean, the memory-wipe never happened, but the death of Moss' wife might have, which would mean that arc plays out as it did in "our" reality. Possibly complete with Moss-as-Corso realizing that Boone wasn't the killer (which might explain why he was gunning for Portia, if she was).

We can also guess that our Portia was the one who tampered with the Android's programming (based on that conversation with the alt-Android [Altdroid?]).

I'm glad they found a way for Ben David to return occasionally but having alt-universe versions of the characters when we already have pre- and post-memory wipe versions is a little much for me. I find that last season held my interest through the mystery of the characters' past selves. Now that it's just space war hijinks I'm less interested.

Well, that was interesting.  There were a number of parallels to "Mirror, Mirror," including Two trying to save the equivalent of the Helkans and Android being a person of integrity in both universes.  I agree that the hitchhiker must have been either Corso or Moss-- I'm guessing Moss-- mostly because I originally guessed that they would use the card to bring him back somehow.  :D

I just wonder what his motivation for coming across was.   Does he want to get revenge in two universes?

That was an interesting episode. I liked the alternate universe mainly because it showed how our crew could have ended up had the mind wipe not been performed. The not mind wiped Raza crew showed just why they earned such a fearsome reputation, and just what kind of damage they could inflict without their morals getting in the way.

At first I thought the episode was going the time travel route. I figured they had jumped ahead in time, maybe by a few months. I didn't guess alternate universe until the second Raza showed up.

Now since Four knows his counter-part reclaimed the Ishida throne, will he try to do the same? If they crew can get the Blink Drive working properly, that would aim him quite a bit. Also, since he knows his brother backed him in the alternate universe, before trying to go all democracy, he can go to his brother in this universe/ In fact, Four might not be as adverse to democracy as his alt self.

So, do we think alt-verse "Corso" (who almost certainly hitch-hiked across, allowing the show to keep the actor) is Jace Corso or Derrick Moss?

I'm not sure. If it's Jace, that doesn't really add anything to the show. The crew wouldn't want him around and since he didn't kill One their is no reason to seek him out. On the other hand, if it's Moss he's a vastly different Moss than the regular universe Moss. He had no problem nuking a colony to kill Two and what's his name. That's a pretty cold hearted move that One never would have done.

Even if it is the alt-Moss, it's not the One that we grew to know and love. I'm with Cardie that having pre- and post- memory wipe versions and then an alternate universe version might be a little much.

I find that last season held my interest through the mystery of the characters' past selves. Now that it's just space war hijinks I'm less interested.

I'm feeling the same way. This season feels a little more aimless right now. Without the central mystery of who these people are there isn't much driving the show. I wouldn't mind the space war between the corporations being the central theme if they weren't all so interchangeable. I couldn't name one of the corporations without looking it up and I honestly couldn't tell you which corporation was featured in this episode. The show hasn't done anything to make them stand apart.

I just wonder what his motivation for coming across was.   Does he want to get revenge in two universes?

Well, he could be trying to escape from his Raza crew. He did technically try to mutiny against Lin and the others. Escaping to another universe is a good way to ensure he's safe. It's also possible that it's not Moss in the shuttle but someone completely different.

I'm guessing the doctor is dead which sucks. It seems like a waste of his character and it didn't add anything to the plot at all.

We can also guess that our Portia was the one who tampered with the Android's programming (based on that conversation with the alt-Android [Altdroid?]).

It seems that way, though I wonder what her ultimate purpose was going to be. Pre-memory wipe Lin didn't seem to be the type who would want to make an android feel more human just to be nice.

The deaths of both One and the doctor seem very anticlimactic to me.  It's all got to be leading up to something.
