Storyline

After the Cylon's destroy two of the fleet's Agro ships and cripple the last remaining one, Adama hopes to swap an old energizer for seed on the the planet Sectar in Quadrant Zeta. Unfortunately Siress Belloby won't give up the energizer unless the commander courts her. Down on the planet, the inhabitants of the small Agro community of Serenity are looking for a new dispensable constable to hold off the Borays who raid the town each high moon. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Trivia

The plot of this episode was influenced by the classic 1960 Western "The Magnificent Seven" (hence the similarity of the title), which itself was an American interpretation of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 masterpiece "Seven Samurai." The same basic story was also used in two other science-fiction productions: "Message From Space", a 1978 Japanese "Star Wars" clone, and Roger Corman's 1980 sci-fi adventure, "Battle Beyond the Stars."

A humorous re-telling of High Noon
9 September 2010 | by (Asheville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Battlestar Galactica is one of those cheesy shows that, truth to tell, is hard to dislike.

This one is kind of an odd duck, because while the situation the Colony fleet finds itself in is serious (even dire), the episode itself plays out with a generous sampling of humor sprinkled here and there. Some of the humor is a bit too, too... (e.g, Adama being pursued by Belloby plays itself out about like you'd expect). But much of it is actually funny, and kind of charming in that 1970's way, and--best of all--the episode is never dull.

As a bonus, look for a cameo by Olan Soule, the voice of Batman in those Super Friends cartoons. He plays the guy in charge of the fleet's "agro ship."
