Trivia

Lymphocytic encephalitis is an actual disease caused by the Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus. Encephalitis is the acute inflammation of the brain. Brain damage and death can occur as a result of the inflammation. As Doc Cottle stated in the episode, it is usually carried and transmitted by rodents. Unlike the Colonial survivors, humans on Earth are not immune, although infection does not result in symptoms in most healthy adults. It can, however, be deadly for persons with compromised immune systems. See more »

Ethics 101
30 December 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Perhaps the most depressing episode of BSG since the mini-series' destruction of 99% of the human species, A Measure of Salvation has the Adamas and newly reinstalled President Roslin contemplating the use of the virus that destroyed the base star they encountered in "Torn" to exterminate the cylons forever. Things are no better for Baltar, whose duplicity is now a well-known fact among the cylons. These sad and tragic themes will eventually weave together as the two populations converge for the first time since Exodus.

There is a little inconsistency in the scripted characterizations of the main characters in A Measure of Salvation. This detracts only a little from what is otherwise a very powerful and well-crafted story.

Tahmoh Penikett's performance is, perhaps, his best in season 3.
