The Galactica again falls under Cylon attack, but this time, the Cylons have a new strategy. Instead of firing on the ship, they fly their ships into it. This kamikaze attack sets the Galactica ablaze, trapping many crew members, including Athena, Boomer, and Boxie. The initial impacts also critically injured Adama, whose life is now hanging in the balance. Can the crew put out the fire and save the Galactica, and will Adama survive to command it?
