So with that Kat token, another sure bet is in place. I have not actively been keeping up with the forum here, but am I missing anyone here?

Caprica 6
Cavell
Ellen Tigh
Kat
Cain

So who are the final two???

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I am really pulling for ole Gaeta, he may have taken a few bullets in the end, but he saved Galactica more times than Adama, Tigh, or Roslin put together He earns the character most often taken for granted award for the entire series.

There are seventeen Character Cards.

Ten are playable.

Five are waiting to be released.

Two will be revealed.


This is why BGG needs audio. The opening credits music is running through my head, but it's not quite the same...

Serious answers:
If someone were to compete with him for a support spot it would be Doc Cottle and maybe Calee, but I still think Gaeta is the most likely.


Doc Cottle would definitely be support, as would Callie. More likely than both of those, IMO, is Dee Dualla - probably also support.

I think it's a no-brainer that at least 1 of the final 2 has to be a Cylon Leader (probably Leoben) in order to have adequate choices. The 2nd will be either Support or another Cylon Leader. My guess would be Support - Gaeta.

Well so far my guesses to the character choices have been spot-on target (including Ellen Tigh whom a vast majority seemed to think foolish - so there to all you people who mocked me!!)

I think Felix will be the character we bring in as the Support character. Cally, as nice as she is, would seem a bit odd given her uh... boss is the other support character... not for any other reasons. She's an engineer which Chief fills the role of very well, so the question would be what would her character really offer that would make her stand out?

Felix offers a lot more to the game in my opinion. He worked on identifying a traitor in a video, helped develop the cylon detector (I believe... though may have this wrong), has been in the CIC since day one, was a significant character during New Caprica (even if he still was only support), and all in all would seem to offer a great deal in skills. In fact the only skill I don't see him having would be Piloting because he seems capable of doing everything else - making him a very versatile character.

The final character I suspect will be a Cylon leader, and I don't think it can be anyone save a certain reporter. Thats right! April O'Neil will be the final Cylon Leader (once per turn can summon mutated sentient turtles to ninja-kick-ass cylon raiders)

:)

I think the final 5 have more potential being released in the 2nd Expansion.

What about Dualla? If she isn't in this expansion, I doubt she'll be in the next one, seeing as... well... (I prefer Gaeta but I have the feeling he'll be in the next expansion... But as I was wrong on Ellen, I'm not sure anymoresoblue ).

Well, 3 of the Final 5 are in the game already, and 2 were in the base set....

I agree that Gaeta has a lot to offer as the last character, since pretty much everyone agrees there will be one more Cylon leader and it will be D'Anna... but, I don't know... it just seems that the cards we have been shown so far seem to show Cally rather prominently. Cally does have a lot to offer. Like, (as i have said numerous times in the past) the fact that you have to airlock her twice to kill her...

It's Dee. You can see the card and stand up in the new designer's diary picture.

Wow. Dee. I can honestly say I am surprised by that. We'll have to see what her abilities are, but, right now she has me feeling very "meh".

Yeah. a personal crisis card for Dee: Have A Lovely Evening. Go on a date. Reminisce about the good old days. Be really happy and go home with a smile on your face. Then, execute yourself. Increase morale by +1 as no one really truly liked having you around anyway.

I don't agree. I think it will be Leoben.

Of course, both should be in the set...

I liked her with Billy. But when they killed him off and she became Lee's surrogate Starbuck...meh...

I was pretty convinced that the seventh new character would be Three, but now I'm actually starting to lean towards Leoben.

And then the characters for the Final Five expansion would include Three (Cylon), Anders (Pilot), Gaeta (Military) and Tory (Political).

Dee was fine when she was a decent person and involved with Billy and whatnot ("They need to start having babies." "Is that an order?"). But once she was all hot for Apollo and pretty much blew off Billy's self sacrifice to save her, I lost all interest in seeing her survive the show. Her death was one I felt was long overdue. Cally was trailer-trashy, but not THAT bad... Gaeta was full of win to begin with but his mutiny sealed his fate, however at least he had principles...

Completely agree with that. I was so pissed when they killed off Billy, then found it was just a writer's excuse to have Lee go dumpster diving. Dee was better than that, at least how she was originally envisioned.

The mutiny episodes were among the best episodes of the series. Maybe even better than the last few episodes. I can't wait to see how that comes off in board game form. Gaeta had a good start, a really whiny patch, then went out with a BIG BANG!

I still don't agree with Anders as a pilot. Hot Dog can easily be the pilot in the next expansion. Anders could be Military (Guerilla stuff on Caprica) or Support.

As I said, much like the show, Gaeta is getting stiffed even on a boardgame - he's THE Rodney Dangerfield of Battlestar Galactica.

Perhaps Dee's negative should be an inability to access the small arms locker. She was a whiny character for me - I'm with Ray on that one.

Its absolutely amazing that they have declined to use Gaeta. Perhaps that Dee character stand will turn out like the "Opera House" - one can only hope.

Now we can modify DC's Intro text a bit, since "something has changed"...

There are seventeen Character Cards.

Fourteen are known to be human.

Two are Cylons.

One will be revealed.

His whiny/mutiny time reminded me of emo Spiderman in Spiderman 3

Well, I can understand somebody being whiny just after losing a leg. And the face of the enemy helped understand Gaeta's position about the whole Cylon-human thing.

But he was bound to fail
