    Well, I watched the countdown in slow motion several times and came up with
    ten separate symbols representing numbers. None of the symbols are exactly
    the same as the alphabet symbols though there are a few that are close.

    In the tens of seconds column only two numbers were prominent. I would
    have guessed they're meaning at a '1' and a '0', but in the second column
    these two symbols are also prominent, but there are three other symbols,
    and unfortunately, two of those three are shown to be after these that I
    thought represented '1' and '0'. This is before the explosion. Oh yea, one
    of the symbols goes down like it was supposed to, but then it goes back to
    the previous symbol as if while counting down '7,6,7,5' which adds to the
    mess that I had to sift through. Phew! Why go further? I don't want
    to even go into the tenth of a second and hundredth of a second columns
    because things really get confusing. I believe that these symbols were
    just randomly thrown in and made to look like a countdown. I wasted
    an hour of my life trying to figure this out. I found no legitamite pattern
    in this mess of symbols to mean numbers. One day they may release
    an actual pattern and this scene could be dissected even further.

    * I drew out all ten symbols and the pattern which followed some
    kind of countdown in the episode and I will create a couple thumbnails
    as soon as I figure out how to use this scanner.

    It would only allow me to post one of the scanned pictures. This
    is the countdown displayed in the episode in slow motion. The
    Purple symbols and the Green symbols represent two separate
    scenes where the symbols are shown clearly. There is a scene
    in between where the symbols are being viewed through the
    backside of the screen meaning the symbols are backwards.
    There was a fight on the other side of the screen and this is
    hard to view. The Green scene has a part where the guy's
    head goes through the numbers, but it's only a second or two.

    The first picture where I drew the number symbols clearly
    are blocked from becoming thumbnails. I've tried shrinking
    down the size of the picture and everything. No luck. The
    last thing that was stated was 'TIFF image incorrect file ext.'
    I don't know what that means, but I tried.

    I figured it out!!! This thing used up the last of my sanity.
    Now, I'm spent. Are there any math wizzes who can find some
    kind of pattern in these symbols to represent numbers?

    Thank you, Rob. I knew that someone out there could figure out a pattern.
    Now, all V fans can rejoice in knowing the Visitor numbering system.

    I was browsing around and found a site dedicated to the Visitor
    alphabet and number system.

    http://www.omniglot.com/writing/visitor.htm

    *The only thing I think they got wrong was the Visitor Symbol
    listed in the 2009 version should be moved up to the 1984
    version. They haven't used it in the modern version, yet.

    I'm greatly anticipating the day the original "Nazi-esque" symbol makes a reappearance. It'll be a great nod to the old show and add a modicum of spookiness.
