Cylon Machiavelli Plan
31 August 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Dr. Gaius Baltar is called to the bridge of Galactica, he discovers that Cylon Number Six is visible for Commander Adama and the crew. Further, she claims to be Shelley Godfrey, who worked in Caprica security system, and that has evidences that Dr. Baltas is a traitor that allowed the Cylons to invade the human's defense mainframe and planted a bomb to destroy the system. Dr. Baltar temporarily loses his privileges and Lieutenant Gaeta is assigned to authenticate the proofs. Chief Tyrol asks Starbuck to help him to activate the Cylon raider. Meanwhile, in the Cylon-occupied Caprica, Helo and Boomer are in love for each other.

In this intriguing episode, Number Six plots a Machiavellian plan to give full power to Dr. Gaius Baltar. I just can not understand the silly and infantile behavior of this character, with the most stupid attitudes and not raising suspicious in the experienced senior command of the survivors. Boomer seems to be indeed in love for Helo, and if that is true, it will be an interesting plot point in the story. The nasty Cylon raider that Starbuck brought on board of Galactica is a funny part of this good episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Nas Mãos de Deus" ("In the Hands of God")
