From "Battlestar Galactica: Resurrection Ship: Part 1 (#2.11)" (2006)
[last lines]
[Adama and Cain are ordering each other's assassinations]
Admiral Helena Cain: Jack, I want to transfer a detachment of marines to Galactica. And I want you to handpick them. Completely reliable, completely loyal. Razors.
Commander William Adama: I have a mission for you, Kara.
Lt. Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: Anything for you, you know that.
Commander William Adama: Don't accept too quickly. You won't like this one. I don't like it, but I decided that it has to be done.
Admiral Helena Cain: I'm transferring you to Galactica as well. I'll tell Adama that you're there to be my eyes and ears. He'll hate it; he'll think you're my spy and try to freeze you out of decision making, but he'll accept it. Now I want you to *stay* in CIC throughout the attack. *Stay* with Adama.
Commander William Adama: After the attack is completed, and you've accounted for your pilots, I want you to land your bird on the Pegasus to report directly to CIC. You'll take Lee with you; he'll watch your back.
Admiral Helena Cain: Position marines in key areas throughout the ship, and keep a squad posted just outside CIC.
Commander William Adama: There'll be the normal chaos and emotional high after the attack.
