Trivia

In episodes #1.02, "Water" and #1.03 "Bastille Day", the Galactica crew needs to collect water from a frozen planet, a difficult job for which they seek to employ the services of prisoners traveling with the fleet. This bears a resemblance to episode #1.07 "Gun on Ice Planet Zero, part I" of the original Battlestar Galactica (1978) where several prisoners with arctic survival skills are brought in to help rescue a downed pilot and destroy the eponymous gun down on the ice planet.

Boomer, the Bomb and the Water
14 August 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Boomer awakes in Galactica completely wet and when she seeks a towel in her bag, she finds a bomb. She disarms the detonator and when she brings them back to the arsenal, she finds that six other detonators are missing. While the trembling Boomer is telling Chief Galen Tyrol about her findings, the portside tanks of Galactica explode. With the loss of 60% of the water provision, Commander Adama rations the supply and sends the Raptors to search water in the nearby planets. Meanwhile in the destroyed Caprica, Lieutenant Helo is rescued by another version of Boomer.

In "Water", the lead attraction is Boomer and her duality since she does not know that she is a Cylon agent infiltrated in Galactica. Or is she Machiavellian and manipulating Chief Tyrol? I am not sure. The story is reasonable but too long for a small plot. The time spent with the ridiculous and useless character of President Laura Roslin is indeed irritating. Power corrupts and this character is a proof in this series of this wise saying. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Água" ("Water")
