Caprica City, the capital of the Twelve Colonies, as envisioned in the 2003 Battlestar Galactica.

The show said 7 million died in Caprica City. One would think that more would have lived there.

Let's assume 7 million died, but another 4 million survived. And that doesn't include the metro area, does it? (Oh, I'm such a stickler!!!)

I'm always surprised at how materialistic, fundamentalist, and anti-environmentalist the Colonies were. There is evidence dropped throughout the show that the Colonies are not a progressive, liberal society which has met the needs of people and planet, but rather a highly stratified society fixated on wealth and power, ruling over relatively despoiled planets.

The colonies were NOT perfect. Did they deserve annihilation? Maybe they did.
