YATI : I have to wonder where dinosaurs figure into the Progenitor species plans. The dinosaurs were the dominant lifeform on Earth for over a hundred million years, and it was largely due to a fluke asteroid impact that they died out and mamals became the dominant life form, and that primates and then Huanoids subsequently developed. How does this square with the idea that the Progenitor DNA code has been directing evolution towards humanoids all along?
Great Moment : Alright the science is pretty bogus, but it's such an enjoyable romp that I just love this episode!
Body Count : One - Galen.
Factoid : This episode was inspired by Carl Sagan's novel "Contact", in which a clue to the nature of the universe is discovered encoded within the number pi.
