Also our first view of some of the Colonial military might that isn't battlestars. Osiris seems to be really cramped in comparison and has some sort of "stealth" system, that they lose if they launch anything.
It's AC system also sucks balls.
Osiris screamed "space submarine". The cramped interior, the "battle red" lighting, the hot conditions, and the stealth that would be lost if you tried to do anything meaningful.
Some of which is just non-nonsensical, like the poor AC units. But I suppose after 10 years of war, the Colonials have given up on optimizing creature comforts like proper airflow through the CIC.
If this were to have turned into a series, I would have liked to have seen when the Cylons started corrupting ship systems. Everything just looks a little too high tech to be operating under the assumption that the Cylons can hack in. Galactica's CIC for example. The reliance of Greystone tech for training, pleasure, and briefings for another.
In truth, there's a lot here that has the potential to screw up previous canon, some of which has already been discussed. In the opening of BSG's miniseries, we have the tour which describes Galactica as built during a time when technology was the enemy, yet we don't see evidence of that. She was still one of the original 12 Battlestars. When was she built? Has she served for almost 10 years already, or she one of the newest of the 12? If its the latter, there shouldn't be too many Battlestars in the fleet, and one of them we've already seen destroyed.
Where exactly Razor fits into all of this is also unclear. Obviously Razor is at the very end of the war, about 2 years later from what we're seeing now, yet I was always under the impression that Adama was a rookie then. Of course, I'd rather he not be, as Adama always struck me as a battle hardened soldier, not someone who had one fling with the Cylons before the war ended.
