Starbuck is engaged in a game of triad (by Earth standards a mixture of basketball and football) and is consistently struck by hot-tempered bullying Flight Sergeant Ortega, whose low-blows to Starbuck finally result in a fight and ejection of both from the game. Starbuck nearly resumed the fight with Ortega but is stopped by Cassiopeia. Both men separate and after Ortega cleans up he is confronted - and found shot to death.

Quotes

Baltar: You're a wonder, Captain. Instead of offering me freedom to identify Karibidis, you offer me... my life. How touching.
Capt. Apollo: It's your only chance.
Baltar: You mean Lieutenant Starbuck's only chance.
Capt. Apollo: That may be true, but I'm betting your instinct for survival is stronger than your desire to see Starbuck convicted for a crime he didn't commit.
