Gallactica meets Pegasus, and Adama's command is threatened when the captain of Pegasus outranks him. A joyous celebration turns sour at some of the secrets emerging out of the differences of the two crews, and Baltar meets a familiar Cylon prisoner aboard Pegasus.
Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.
When the initial Cylon attack against the Twelve Colonies fails to achieve complete extermination of human life as planned, twin Number Ones (Cavils) embedded on Galactica and Caprica must improvise to destroy the human survivors.

Starbuck is discussing a plan to save the resistance group on Caprica, when reports are coming in of Cylon activity. A large ship is moving to Galactica. Then Gaeta receives colonial transponders. It's the Battlestar Pegasus, with admiral Cain on board. At first, the crew of Galactica seems overjoyed at their arrival, especially since much needed supplies are being delivered. Then reports start coming in about Cain's unorthodox ways of commanding. She also decides to merge both crews, ordering Apollo and Starbuck to join Pegasus' air group. Meanwhile a large Cylon vessel is discovered, guarded by two basestars. A reconnaissance mission is planned. Dr. Baltar is asked to interrogate a Cylon on the Pegasus. She's been tortured and turns out to be a Number Six copy. Written by

After a long time thinking that the Galactica is the only surviving battlestar the crew have quite a surprise when the Battlestar Pegasus turns up. At first everybody is overjoyed but soon they start to hear about how Admiral Cain runs her ship; the XO tells Col. Tigh how Cain killed his predecessor, he then claims it was a joke but Tigh isn't so sure. It certainly isn't a joke how they have treated their Cylon prisoner; she has clearly been violently and we later learn sexually abused. As Cain is the highest-ranking officer she takes command of the fleet and starts to transfer crew-members between the ships. The members of Pegasus' crew who have been transferred to Galactica start to boast about what they did to their Cylon prisoner and about what they intend to do to Sharon this leads to Helo and Chief Tyrol rushing to her rescue, they find one of Pegasus' officers attempting to rape her. What happens next leads to their arrest and puts the two battlestars on a collision course as Adama is determined to free his men.
This was one of the most gripping episodes to date even though it isn't full of spectacular action. The way the Pegasus' crew act is both shocking and disturbing. Michelle Forbes gives a fantastic performance as Admiral Cain leaving the viewer in no doubt that she will do whatever she feels is necessary to run her ship, whether that is morally acceptable in a decent society or not. While this isn't officially a multipart episode it does end with the words ' to be continued' and certainly left this viewer eager to find out what happened next!
