Apollo and Starbuck come across a vessel they think may have come from Earth and take it aboard the Galactica. On board are two adults and four children in a state of suspended animation. Adama disagrees with the Council of Twelve about opening the sleeping chambers, for that may mean endangering the humans within. When the adult male, Michael, wakes up, he finds it difficult to breath the air on board the Galactica. Apollo, Starbuck and Cassiopea decide to escort the Lunar Shuttle Avion to its destination, hoping to find out if the travelers home, Terra, may be related to the planet Earth. Written by

So far, I've determined that the atmosphere of the planet these people came from is approximately one-fifth the atmosphere of Caprica. Also, there are references to another planet called Terra...
Wait a centon.
Terra... Terra in Gemonese means Earth!
That doesn't mean this is the planet Earth we're looking for.
