Before starting off the session, she thanked a few of the audience members for gifts that were given to her. One such gift was a pin showing President Obama looking at a portrait of Roslin asking "What Would Laura Roslin Do?" McDonnell also pointed out some of her most devoted followers named Mary's Girls. This collection of fans have been following the actress since the early days of BSG and have grown over the years to about 40 members. A few of these ladies were in the audience and she praised them for their efforts in raising money for the different charities McDonnell has supported over the years.
The questions started off with McDonnell being asked what aspects of Battlestar Galactica she wished had been answered. Interestingly enough, when many fans would touch on some of the plot lines that were left a little tattered, she spoke of wondering what kind of mother Roslin would have been if she was given that chance.
