Episode cast overview, first billed only:


The Cylons have now been in control of New Caprica for over four months. Gaius Baltar is under their collective thumbs and essentially follows their orders. There is a resistance who set off bombs and do their best to disrupt Cylon activity. Col. Tigh is in prison and despite extensive torture, including the loss of an eye, has told them nothing. His wife Ellen will do anything to secure his release and is soon in a sexual relationship with one of the Cylons, John Cavil. There are mixed feelings among the survivors. Some feel the random acts of violence against their captors serves no useful purpose while others feel it is their duty to resist. Kara Thrace, Starbuck, is being kept prisoner in an apartment of sorts by Leoben Conoy. She too resists but every time she kills him, he is simply re-generated and reappears insisting he will continue to do so until he tells her she loves him. Back on Galactica, Admiral Adama takes his son Lee, Commander of the Battlestar Pegasus, to task for ... Written by garykmcd

When Laura Roslin is writing her diary, she mentions for the first time a Roman god name, since she states it's Mars Day (probably Tuesday in the colonial calendar, since that's the day dedicated to the god of war). We can assume they use both Mars and Ares (this name was used in the webisodes 'The Resistance'), as well as they talk of Jupiter in later episodes instead of Zeus ('The Eye of Jupiter', 'Rapture'). Laura Roslin also says for the first time that one of their gods has got an specific influence area, which is war for Mars. Later, in the episode 'Torn', Hot Dog states Athena is the goddess of war and wisdom. See more »


When Starbuck kills a Number Two, her hand is covered with blood. When she picks up a knife her hand is mostly clean. Later in the scene her hand is covered with blood again. See more »


Commander William Adama: Sharon can penetrate the Cylon defenses...
Commander Lee 'Apollo' Adama: It's not about her.
Commander William Adama: Centurions can't distinguish her from the other humanoid models. Did you know that?
Commander Lee 'Apollo' Adama: Admiral...
Commander William Adama: They were deliberately programmed that way. The Cylons didn't want them becoming self-aware, suddenly resisting orders. They didn't want their own robotic rebellion on their hands. I can appreciate the irony.

like the first two seasons...
10 October 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

...just as thrilling as always, with deeply defined characters, the show keeps me wanting more in the third season just like in the first one. People accusing it of being too politically oriented and too obviously depicting the war in Iraq should watch more movies about world war II, with the public executions, the police with that kinda Nazi sign on their left arm... and shouldn't forget who's made more comparable to the American military forces: the Cylons or the crew of the Battlestar? Just look at the helmets! Galactica: Keep them coming, i can't wait... the Cylons particularly are still depicted as being very various in opinions and purpose, which is the big one mistake Humans commit, demonizing their enemy (now that's political!) as One, while reality is much more complicated, subtle and... interesting.

Who wouldn't feel like knowing them better, those Cylons?
