As previously mentioned, I eagerly awaited the premiere of Battlestar Galactica's second season last night. I expected it to be a good episode and I wasn't disappointed. The show does an outstanding job of mixing action, drama, and fascinating story arcs while not neglecting the finer details of character development (not to mention the cool special effects). Good stuff!

The only thing that kind of irked me last night was the whole Cylon intrusion into the jury-rigged computer network onboard Galactica. I'm enough of a geek to think I know a bit about computers (though I'm certainly not a pro), and I had a hard time figuring out how the Cylons could gain access to a closed network consisting of three previously un-networked machines. What was their access point? If the computers weren't open to attack when they were stand-alone machines, why would simply connecting them together provide a hacking opportunity?

Yeah, I'm nitpicking, and it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the show, but did anybody else wonder about that?
