Last update of the evening...I have about half the chapter completed with first edits and re-writes. Ideally, I'll skip rearranging my gun room tomorrow and work on the story, but if I don't, then it might be completed and posted Saturday night, but my guess is unless I pull a very late night Saturday, it'll be posted Sunday.

Chapter 49 has been posted. I'll try to get the master reference documents updated and posted by Monday.

Looking forward to the comments...

This has to be by far the best line in this episode. :lol:

It does however shed some light on his obsession with the 'Virgin Dragon', since they share the same name and a similar look. :o And then there's that last comment from the equal that implies she may still be alive, or at least was at the time. *shakes head*

Electromage, the wetware chip was literally overriding and compelling him, denying him free will. The same way the drones, and apparently some of the U-87's were subverted by the Equals' Genocide-Virus. From the looks of it, the Equals were LEARNING how to subvert human free will and using colonial citizens captured by the Cylons to do it.

I’m well aware of that & it’s still irrelevant. The number of crimes he committed and lives he ruined is staggering, are those people suppose to just say “oh well” and move on. He has to be held responsible or someone will come looking for justice with a shotgun.

I disagree that it's 'irrelevant' it complicates things, yes. But it isn't irrelevant. Pre surgery, Szabo was an ass, but the first thing he realizes when he wakes up is the things he's done and how horrible they are.

Golden Sword Richard was constantly putting the blame on others, and 'Persona-non-Grata' Szabo was a murderous tit.

whoever comes looking for justice with a shotgun would be just as much a murderer as you say Szabo is. He was used, in this case by the Equals, and Cylons like Jonathan and Lucien, as a tool, a disposable thing.

To quote a fine bit of dialogue. "Don't be so quick to deal out death and judgement."

I didn't even realize the secondary context until I was re-reading it later in the evening when it was written. But yeah, it is one of the better lines. :-)

On the surface, that is one way to look at it, but medically it really isn't the case. Szabo didn't know anything about his past, and to him, prior to the chip being removed, the chip was governing his actions in that it altered his past memories, changed bits of his personality, implanted behavioral imperatives and compulsions, and generally guided his actions. This isn't a case of "I was only following orders" or "I didn't have a choice", he didn't know - couldn't conceptualize - that what he was doing was wrong. The obsession with Chase was due to, as you surmised, due to his sister, her name, and her appearance. As for Gemina's comment...we'll see how that develops. And Gemina wasn't an Equal; Capellos was the only Equal present.

I think if you asked Szabo whether he everyone should just say, "Oh well" and move on, he would tell you (post chip) that he must atone, in some way, for what he was compelled to do, even if he wasn't truly responsible for the actions.

If you look at what the chip was originally designed to do, you'll see that he really was as helpless to behave differently as the Drones were when they razed the Union.

I forgot to add, because the heavy details were heavy, ANYTHING with Ava is adorable and a upturn in these trying times (for Fleet and Family... hm that sounds like a battlecry. "For Fleet and Family!" hm.

But not only are her little walks adorable to imagine, cause I can totally imagine her saying hello to everything she meets and Dickens and Lara being comfort/therapy dogs to the crew too. That comment about the marines made my heart warm.

Ava and the Hooligans have a lot of "aunts and uncles" aboard Hecate...
