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)

Trivia

Starbuck's use of her thumb to block the sun in order to see if Scar was coming had originally been done by Gregory H. 'Pappy' Boyington in World War Two, where he discovered that doing so would allow him to see incoming Zeroes. See more »

Goofs

In Starbuck and Kat's final encounter with Scar, they are both in Viper Mk VIIs. However, the Viper being shown launching from Galactica is the stock footage of an older Viper Mk II. See more »

Better than "Black Market," but still weak and simply off-putting
19 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the commenter who said the characters seem "off" in this one. While the vast majority of BSG episodes are phenomenal, this one never works. I never bought the tug-of-war between Starbuck and Kat--it seemed to come out of nowhere, a consistent problem with this stretch of late Season 2.5 episodes (like the preceding "Black Market" and the following "Sacrifice"). I commend Ronald Moore for admitting on his commentaries that these episodes are far from BSG's finest hour. As for "Scar," it's not a bad concept, but it is poorly executed. (And the acting is just plain hammy at times.) Still, it probably gets more credit than its due from fans simply because it's MUCH better than the mind-blowingly awful "Black Market," which was poorly conceived AND executed. Thankfully, BSG soon rallied with much better shows in the grand tradition of Season One and the first half of Season Two.
