“When I saw this scene, though, this just felt like the end of the [episode]. Particularly because the scene kept going past the point where it was supposed to end. The actors started ad libbing and playing around with each other, doing the wrestling move at the end, him tapping himself out. And it was just so charming and there was something warm about it and life was going to go on. […] It’s amazing how many little pieces we pick up from before they call action and after they call cut. This is all just them, goofing around on the set. It just has such a truth to it.” — Ronald D. Moore
Are they the lucky ones? That’s what you’re thinking, isn’t it? We’re a long way from home. We’ve jumped way beyond the Red Line, into uncharted space. Limited supplies, limited fuel. No allies, and now, no hope? Maybe it would have been better for us to have died quickly, back on the Colonies with our families, instead of dying out here slowly, in the emptiness of dark space.
