Admiral Adama has to come to terms with a command decision he made three years ago. At that time, he was in command of a highly secret operation, black ops, to infiltrate as near as possible Cylon space to determine if they are arming for war. He send out a scout ship under the command of Lt. Danny "Bulldog" Novacek, a close friend. Adama was forced however to make a decision that he regrets to this day. Novacek however has survived and after three years of imprisonment by the Cylons, has managed to escape in one of their fighters. He's welcomed back with open arms but Adama now questions if he can continue as the senior military officer and submits his resignation to President Roslin. Starbuck meanwhile reviews the flight information on Novacek's arrival and finds something odd. Written by

Battlestar Valkyrie receives, for the first time in the show, a name from Norse mythology. Greek mythology is present in the show in the gods and the names of the colonies (inspired in the Zodiac), and several names for Battlestars (Pegasus) or cities (Delphi, Troy). The Valkyries are warrior maidens from Norse mythology who rode the skies on their horses, so Valkyrie seems a good name for a Battlestar. See more
