Storyline

As a result of the most recent suicide bombings, some of the Cylons are now arguing that they need to retaliate. Laura Roslin, among others, is in custody and Gaius Baltar tries to get her to cooperate. Tigh however absolutely refuses to stop the suicide bombings. Nighttime raids also leads to Cally's arrest but they leave her baby alone. Sharon Valerii sees what she can do about it. John Cavil meanwhile tells Ellen Tigh she is to provide the date and location of the next meeting of the resistance commanders. Leoben Conoy is still holding Starbuck prisoner but introduces her to her daughter, Kacey, produced from eggs they harvested from her when she was on the Farm. On Galactica, Admiral Adama begins to plan for a massive rescue of everyone on New Caprica. He realizes they will have to obtain the launch keys for all of the ships on the planet's surface. The best way of infiltrating the Cylons is with another Cylon so Adama commissions Sharon Agathon as an officer. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Dr. Gaius Baltar: You don't need my signature.
D'Anna Biers: Well, actually we do. We're here as allies and friends of the legitimate government of the colonies. You are the president so everything we do requires your signature.
Brother Cavil: In other words, they are worried about what God might think if they commit murder. They are covering their existential asses!

The second part of a two-part season-opener, Precipice resolves some of the subplots introduced in Occupation. The Cylons are cracking down on the New Caprican resistance, which is becoming increasingly reckless. Admiral Adama has finally decided on a course of action and a daring rescue attempt for the New Capricans, employing an unexpected ally. Lee and Pegasus are protecting the civilian fleet, and hope is hanging by a thread.

The third season refocused BSG's central characters a bit. Tigh, Starbuck, Sharon, and Gaeta came into their own, and Sackhoff and Hogan rose to the forefront of the cast. hints of all of this showed up in Precipice and even more strongly in the successive episodes.

Though not as exciting as the two-part Exodus that followed, Precipice is an important episode for understanding the rest of the third season. As usual, the script, directing and cinematography are well-above standard TV.
