Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Number Six (credit only)


The Galactica is having a boxing tournament of sorts. As Admiral Adama explains it to President Roslin, the purpose is to let the crew step into the ring and release their frustrations against an opponent of their choice, regardless of rank. As the crew watch or participate the fight, they recall past incidents between them. Adama calls out Chief Tyrol, who he let go live on New Caprica when he really needed him on the ship. He has a message for the crew on duty and obligations. Starbuck and Apollo have a long history together and have never fully comes to terms with their feelings for one another. During the initial establishment of the colony on New Caprica they made love after a drunken wild party and Apollo was ready for them to make a life together. Starbuck refused to accept their need for one another and married Sam Anders the very next day. Written by garykmcd

One of the Top Ten
12 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why so many people hated this episode. Actually I do, but I don't understand why they watch Battlestar. When I saw the preview after 'Hero', I said 'WTF, Boxing Episode?' Then I watched it. To me, this episode epitomized why I watch BSG. Pure, character driven drama, and is now on my top ten favorites across the whole show. I guess you can listen to those who say 'OMFG GHEY SOAP OPREA WERES The SPLOSIONS?????///slash?', but why? This episode provided a deep look at the rifts that had settled between characters in the 'One Year Later' jump at the end of season 2, and how they all dealt with their own unfinished business. Anybody who likes Battlestar for the adult drama it is should enjoy this episode. Otherwise, I hear Lucas is working on another rehash of the Star Wars Saga.
