Yes, I am a nerd.
I caught the Brooklyn Bridge, but not the POTA reference - good catch.
Obviously I don't know where they are going, but why can't it be 2000 or more years in our future and we've screwed up this planet to the point where we've destroyed Earth with a nuclear holocaust. Couldn't they find some sort of sign that the 13th Tribe - Earth - has colonized other planets just like the other 12 tribes did? Wouldn't that give them something to look for as in, the colonies of the lost 13th tribe?
The problem with the original BSG show (and something that was poorly addressed in Galactica 1980) was that even if they had found Earth, how the heck were we going to help them fight the Cylons? All they'd be doing is bringing death and destruction to another planet that had yet to develop interstellar travel.
If it turns out that the whole series is 2000 years in the future, the 13th tribe or their descendants might actually be able to help.
