The Galactica has been harvesting food on the algae planet for some weeks now when Chief Tyrol comes across a cave that indicates it may be the Temple of Five containing a marker, the Eye of Jupiter, left behind by the 13th tribe meant to point the way to Earth. Just as Adama and Roslin are getting an update on the find, four Basestars appear but do not attack. Rather, they\ Cylons have a proposition for them: give the the Eye of Jupiter and all hostilities will cease. Adama and Roslin agree that under no circumstances will they surrender the find.

Neither Athena nor Helo believe it but after getting the truth from Roslin, Adama confirms that it's true. Written by
