The second, more contemporary retelling of the story of a ragtag fleet of spacecraft -- chased by killing machines that they created -- ended with an epic flourish. Hand-to-hand battles, spaceship-to-spaceship fighting, genocidal arguments ... all within a dangerous asteroid field and being pulled into a star. It was a science fiction-based show dropped in a bit of the supernatural at the end, with major characters dying, an enemy becoming an ally, possible angels (still being debated), and a crew that had been on a ship-turned-pressure cooker finding Earth (or an Earth-like planet) and settling down.
