I kind of got the feeling that they were intentionally making no implications about Ellen Tigh one way or the other. That Baltar knows whether she's a Cylon or not, but that we, the audience, still have a 50/50 chance of guessing.

As for not having discovered Kobol before: maybe the ship that discovered it had a hard drive crash or something. Since they don't network computers, all the data was lost.

(But, I kid. Because that thing about computer networks is still totally nonsensical.)

TSN: Ya - i figured they were leaving us hanging because - you gotta know she's gonna be trouble, and, we as the audience, will begin to suspect that Ellen's a Cylon...

But I, for some odd reason, pegged her as a Cylon right away... too fishy how she was missing - and by some miracle she turns up with no records of her being aboard the Rising Star... Dunno .. smells fishy to me.

I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I don't think she's a Cylon. Now, the mysterious benefactor who rescued her and nursed her back to health before vanishing. . .

But she could very easily be one of those Cylons who doesn't know she's a Cylon! [Wink]

However, one thing that the show has very cleverly avoided suggesting so far, is any idea whether the humanoid Cylon models are based on real human templates, or whether they created their own appearances themselves. (Translation: Is there a real human woman who looks like Number Six, a real Boomer, a real Leoben?) My guess is that they're original Cylon creations, because Boomer was obviously working on the Galactica for several years at the least. Or otherwise, the Cylons used the real Boomer as the template, and replaced her with one of the Cylon models.

My bet is that there's no original human template. Therefore, Ellen Tigh is not a Cylon. That is, unless you consider the extremely unlikely possibility that poor Colonel Tigh actually married a Cylon however many years ago, and she's been a Cylon all this time. My guess is that the humanoid Cylons are a much more recent development.

So, assuming that the little bit of intel about there only being twelve models of humanoid Cylons is correct, that means that Ellen Tigh is almost certainly not a Cylon.

...Which I think is a bit of a shame, seeing as how the fleet is likely to be in much more trouble if she isn't a Cylon. [Wink]
