I get a sense that the Kaylons are a mashup of the Borg and the Founders from Star Trek lore.
Regarding the episode, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Wasn't messing with my phone, this had my complete and undivided attention.
What a space battle! Last space battle that I can think of that was that epic in scope was the battle over Coruscant from Revenge of the Sith. Makes sense to me now why they've done a lot of understated character episodes this season, they needed to save their $$$ for the CGI work on these two episodes.
So now that Kaylon Primary is deactivated, which robot takes their place? Are the Kaylon now leaderless? Will there be some kind of Kaylon civil war? It sounds like Kaylon Primary was their leader for a very long time, so was there a successor? Individual Kaylons have exhibited autonomy, unlike the Borg who were all slaved to the collection, so what do you all think?
