Storyline

Commander Adama is searching for the location of the Tomb of Athena so that he can reconcile with president Roslin. Along with Tyrol and Billy he takes a Raptor to Kobol. On Kobol Roslin's team is on their way to the tomb, facing a difficult journey. They are approaching a rock formation of which Boomer thinks is the Gates of Hera. Tom Zarek and his companion Meier still are planning to kill Lee Adama. Meier approaches Boomer to do the job. Meanwhile on Galactica, Number Six tells Dr. Baltar in the brig that a child will be born there. Baltar realizes how ridiculous the situation really is and calls his baby mythical. Suddenly Number Six tells him that he doesn't have a Cylon chip in his brain and that he actually is imagining her. Baltar runs to Dr. Cottle for tests. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Commander William Adama: [giving a speech in the Hanger Deck] We have struggled since the attacks... trying to rely on one another. Our strength and our only hope as a people, is to remain undivided. We haven't always done all we could to insure that. Many people believe that the scriptures, the letters from the gods, will lead us to salvation. Maybe they will. But the gods shall lift those who lift each other." And so, to lift all of us, let me present once again the president of the colonies, Laura Roslin.

At least they're consistent...
21 April 2015 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Galactica's plots got progressively worse (and the characters' behaviour progressively more illogical) as time went by and as new writers were called in to "pad" the series to the number of episodes the network requested, but one thing still made me have faith in the original writers.

The really memorable plot twists are the ones that have been hiding in plain sight since the beginning. The recording in Coppola's "The Conversation", Keyser Söze in "The Usual suspects", or Onoff's real circumstances in Tornatore's much-imitated "Una Pura Formalità".

And since it was revealed that Apollo's arrow was the key that would unlock the map to Earth, I was secretly hoping that Ronald D. Moore (who wrote the excellent pilot episodes, as well as this one) was getting ready to pull one of those.

The physical object that Starbuck had retrieved from the museum would turn out to have the Caprican equivalent of "Made in Hong Kong" printed on the bottom, it would prove completely useless, and everyone would be disappointed and frustrated.

And then Starbuck would do the kind of thing she does. She'd get mad, she'd shout something about all the fraking people who had fraking died for that fraking piece of fraking plastic, she'd punch through some fake wall, and the map would be revealed

And everyone would suddenly realise that she (the best pilot in the fleet, Lee Adama's greatest weapon, the one who always hits the target) was Apollo's arrow. That she was part of the prophecy. That the answer had been hiding in plain sight all along.

But no. She got a bejewelled goldish arrow from a museum, put it in a statue's hand, and everyone got magically teleported to a room showing a nonsensical "map" that ignores the most basic principles of astronomy.

It's official: Galactica's writers aren't just bad at science and logic, they're also bad at drama.
