Trivia

During the dogfight between Buck and Hawk, if you pause your DVD player, you will see what appear to be the words "Game Over" in one of the computer targeting screens. See more »

Goofs

Buck can't see out of the windows on his left and right side of the shuttle. They are too high to be useful unless he pilots the ship standing up. He always pilots the ship sitting down. The window directly in front of him makes sense but does not appear on the front of the model; which is actually the re-used model of the Battlestar Galactica Shuttle. See more »

Everybody's heard about the bird.

Pt. 2 of Time of the Hawk sees Buck and Hawk teaming together to try and save Koori, the bird-man's wife, after she is wounded during a space-battle between the two men. The truce lasts until they get the woman to a healer (who is unable to save her life), after which the pair partake in a bout of fisticuffs atop a rock.

Eventually, Wilma arrives to escort Buck and Hawk (who have been rendered unconscious by the benevolent healer) to The Searcher where the bird-man must face trial for his deeds.

A satisfactory finalé to this first tale in the second season sees a fair amount of decent action (the fight scene on the rock is well choreographed and looks suitably dangerous), one of Gerard's best performances of the series, as Buck makes an emotional plea to the Galactic court to try and save Hawk's life, and Thom Christopher becoming a permanent fixture of the (short lived) show.

And there's no annoying know-it-all, tin-can Chrichton, or crap-voiced Twiki to ruin this part either.
