How many times do you watch every episode of Battlestar Galactica? The answer may depend, not just on how much you enjoy hearing Edward James Olmos' smoky rasp, but also on how eager you are to freeze-frame key moments every episode in search of clues. If you look hard enough, there are little details in recent BSG episodes that either give a crucial glimpse of where the saga is going — or they show that fans have an overactive imagination. Decide for yourself (with spoilers) after the jump.
The Mighty Hunter appears! The constellation Orion, aka the Mighty Hunter, appears a few times in last week's episode of Battlestar, "The Ties That Bind." You can see it in the background when the Cylon basestars start fighting, and then later when Tory introduces Cally to President Roslin's running mate. As various people have pointed out, this star formation would only look like Orion from Earth, or somewhere near Earth. So are our heroes closer to Earth than they realize? Or was this just a stock star backdrop that someone threw in there? [Cyn City]
