BSG, again

Am I correct that "The Hybrid" aboard the rebel Cylon base ship (by that I mean the chick in the white body suit who never leaves the sunken hot tub) is the ship's captain, senior staff, and main computer all rolled into one?

Dunno about captain, but I guess she is the "brains" of the ship as well as some sort of spiritual guide.
I think.

I'd say all but the Captain. Ship's computer most definitely.

Jump control too. Wonder if, with the babble and whatnot, she's like a Dune Navigator.

If she spends all of her time in the tub, does that mean that the ship is really the Golgafrinchan B Ark?

Nice pick up on the Ark. That would also explain why there are so many frakin' journalists.

I would actually go so far as to say that she IS the ship. Remember that the smaller ships actually ARE Cylons, and therefore don't have pilots as they themselves are "alive".

P.S. I haven't seen any Season 4 shows so this could be out-of-date with regard to newly revealed information.
