Storyline

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. To complicate matters further, Lt. Gaeta determines that the nearby sun is about to go supernova. Meanwhile, Boomer tells Athena that her baby, Hera, is alive but not well. Neither Athena nor Helo believe it but after getting the truth from Roslin, Adama confirms that it's true. Written by garykmcd

A standoff with the Cylons
30 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The fleet has managed to pass through the radiation belt and the harvesting of the algae that they will use for food has begun. Chief Tyrol is on the surface but finds himself drawn away from the encampment and finds a cave which contains a temple; a temple that matches the description of one left by the thirteenth tribe on their way to Earth. They haven't had long to examine it when four Cylon base ships jump into orbit and rather than attacking they propose a deal. While negotiations are taking place on Galactica Athena has a conversation with Boomer and learns that her daughter is still alive… indicating to her that people she trusted lied to her. As the end approaches it looks as if there will be a major conflict; the Cylons are heading down to the surface and Admiral Adama is threatening to destroy the site of the temple to keep the possible map to Earth from the Cylons.

This was another gripping episode where it looks as if another major character could be dead and given how she was lied to about her daughter Athena's loyalty to humanity could be tested to breaking point. Grace Park put in a good performance as Athena and Boomer and Dean Stockwell brought some humour to the episode as the Cylon Cavall. While the main story was good I could have done without the sexual tension between Starbuck and Apollo; I don't mind it so much in the filler episodes but here I want to concentrate on more important things.
