Olmos explained how he "walked around the dead bodies, and I came up to the front [...] and just said, you know, 'We will find Earth, I promise you we will find Earth. So say we all.'" Creator Ronald D. Moore further explained that when the actors didn’t seem to respond to Olmos at first, "he said it again [...and] they all kind of glance at each other and go, 'So say we all.' And then he insists. He says it louder and he just pushed them and pushed."
