Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Patricia Idlette ...


24 ships have left the fleet to join president Roslin. In orbit of Kobol, they await the arrival of the Arrow of Apollo. Starbuck, Helo and Boomer arrive quickly, but the introduction of Boomer isn't as peacefully as Helo hoped. He is only barely able to prevent Lee from shooting her and Roslin orders to throw her out of the airlock. Then Boomer mentions she knows the location of the Tomb of Athena, the place on Kobol where the location of Earth is kept. Back on Galactica commander Adama is adamant in keeping the fleet divided, denouncing Roslin's followers as religious fanatics and terrorists. He appoints George Birch as new commander of the air group. Colonel Tigh thinks it's a bad choice. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Back to Kobol
23 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With the fleet still divided Commander Adama must choose a new CAG, the man he selects is keen to show that he has what it takes but it soon becomes clear that he doesn't when his first training missions in the role end in near disaster; morale on Galactica is at a low point leading him to make his most important decision since he recovered. Back with the other half of the fleet President Roslin is trying to persuade people that they must return to Kobol and find the Temple of Athena. While the discussion is ongoing Starbuck returns and they are shocked to discover she has a Cylon with her; namely Sharon Valerii. This Sharon might not be the individual that shot Adama but she is the same model and that is enough for Apollo to want her dead; Helo is not going to stand for that however and we soon have a stand off! Roslin defuses the situation but Sharon still appears to be in danger, until she points out that she knows the way to the Temple of Athena. They head to Kobol and once there she proves her loyalty by firing on other Cylons when they attack them.

This was a good opening to a two-part story, it really looked as if Sharon might get shot and the scene was tense even though it wasn't the first time I've watched the episode. Grace Park is great in the role of Sharon; making the character seen strong and vulnerable at the same time. Another stand out scene was that between Kandyse McClure and Edward James Olmos as Petty Officer Dualla and Commander Adama where she told him what he needed to hear leading to his decision to reunite the fleet. This being the first part of a two-part story we were left with a few unanswered questions such as will Zarek and his friend harm Apollo and just what will Adama do to the people who led the break up of the fleet?
