Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Leoben Conoy (as Callum Keith Rennie)


Baltar learns from Caprica Six of their ability to project themselves and imagine different surroundings which leads him to wonder if he too is a Cylon. He has told the Cylons what he knows about the location of Earth and they dispatch a Basestar to investigate. In the end, the survey ship is infected with a virus killing everyone aboard. Aboard the Galactica, Lt. Gaeta has been reviewing Baltar's work in deciphering the map they recovered on Kobol. He too thinks he know what it all means. Of greater concern however is the wedge between those who stayed with the fleet and those who were on the ground fighting the Cylons. Starbuck and Colonel Tigh in particular are quite vocal in complaining about those who stayed behind and it's left to Admiral Adama to lay down the law. Written by garykmcd

Captain Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: [to Julia Prynne] You seem like a really nice person so I'm gonna be honest with you. The last thing I need is a 2-year-old friend and Kacey sure as hell does not need me in her life. So do us both a favor and do not bring her around here again, okay?

The Deterioration Continues
30 December 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

In their psychologically devastated state, Tigh and Starbuck have found solace in each other's company, and their hopeless negativity and incessant drinking problems have alienated them completely from the crew. What will it take to make Kara face her poorly developed self-concept and allow Saul to get his demons back under some semblance of control? Meanwhile, things are not much better aboard the surreal dream-world of the Cylon base star. En-route to Earth, with Galactica shadowing them, Baltar is sent to investigate a dying base star which has been infected by a killer virus. In Torn, Galactica encounters this same ship, and the speculations begin.

Torn does much to advance the third season's story arc, but very little to provide any form of hope for the human or cylon populations. It's culmination, however, in the intense "Measure of Salvation" is even less upbeat.
