Storyline

The fleet has discovered an asteroid field with a large ore deposit, enough to construct at least two new squadrons of vipers. But the Cylons know about it and behind every rock there could be a raider. Since the destruction of the Resurrection ship they changed their tactics from mass to sneak attacks. Several pilots are already dead and especially raider Scar is feared. Meanwhile Starbuck hasn't been herself lately. She drinks a lot, thinks much about Anders and is getting irritated by Kat. She continually challenges her, beats her record in training and calls her the next Tigh. Both claim they will hunt down Scar. 200 cubits and the precious Top Gun trophy, currently in Starbuck's possession, are at stake. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Not BSG's finest, still better than most of what was - and is - on television
13 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

Perhaps it's because I revisited BSG on DVD and watched the last half of S1, all of S2 and all of S2.5 in a marathon, but in viewing 'Scar' within that context the episode does not seem nearly as weak as it may have when originally aired and viewers were waiting a week (or sometimes more) for new content. The rivalry between Starbuck and Kat does not at all seem to "come out of nowhere," in fact it seemed perfectly in keeping with what had previously transpired. It had not been a time-consuming plot point, but it was hardly out of place, and it is these studies in relationships that helps make BSG one of the best television shows ever made.

Granted, this is not BSG's finest hour by any means, but it is not awful, it does build on our understanding of the toasters and of two major characters, and it is at this point a pleasurable view. Again, I understand that at time of the original airing it may have been more frustrating given each week's anticipation, but it is far, far above the true disappointments of the series such as 'Black Market.'
