Re: How in-line with canon will Diaspora continue to be?
Oh there is many a way that you could get a some sort of military vessel past the cylons. First, remeber that most of the colonial fleet was stationed at one dock. Which makes no sense, but lets go with it.

where was that shown?

It wasn't. He's probably referring to the opening of Razor, where the Tauron shipyards were destroyed with quite a few Battlestars in dock.

It is important to remember that the Cylons started the war with overwhelming strategic and tactical surprise. It's Pearl Harbor times a thousand; and it would have been impossible for the Colonials to have their fleet in a position to react against an enemy that knows where each and every one of their capital ships are and who have a convenient off-switch for all of them.

There were three battlestars at Scorpia (maybe six, if you're picky about positioning and the presence of rollbars, but given that Cain said there were only two, lets stick with the lower number). Adama told Starbuck in the miniseries that thirty-odd battlestars had been wiped out in the Cylons initial attack (and her reaction of "that's a quarter of the fleet!" gives us the 120-battlestar number for the Colonial Navy during the attack). So not only was most of the fleet not at one shipyard, most of the ships initially destroyed weren't, either.

So that actually disproves what you initially said, which is

This is not compatible with

So, which is it? :)

Unless... my dark secret identity has been revealed!

(It hasn't. I just wanted to specify exactly how that thing about everyone being at one shipyard was inaccurate.)

People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.
