There is water on the moon, and it isn't important in any way shape or form. There is no atmosphere on the moon so obviously water can't even be an indication of life.
And even looking at it as "oh now we can make a moon colony" whatever, we could have brought water to the moon from earth if we wanted a moon colony so bad.
Hell, considering the global warming freaks out there we can stand to lose a few thousand tons of water so that when we fuck ourselves over it doesn't end up flooding the god damn planet.
The only thing that would have made this story interesting was if the water was brought there by aliens and that the U.S. admitted that there was an alien moonbase on the dark side of the moon and that the government has known about it for decades.
Hell, it would have been even cooler if it wasn't water at all but gold or platinum or something just so we'd have an excuse to kickstart the lunar mining camps up there. We could export convicts and retards to go work in that inhospitable environment and create a progressive age of mankind where only the useful and intelligent of mankind continue to live on earth.
As it stands right now though, fuck the moon and its water.
I come on every day and have no idea what Baltar is talking about.
