Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.
When the initial Cylon attack against the Twelve Colonies fails to achieve complete extermination of human life as planned, twin Number Ones (Cavils) embedded on Galactica and Caprica must improvise to destroy the human survivors.

A prequel series, set 100 years before the original Star Trek series, which focuses on the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan Wars. The series is set aboard the Earth ship Enterprise NX-01, captained by Jonathan Archer.
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
During the boxing session between Chief and the Admiral, when Chief enters the boxing ring he has his dog tags on and does not take them off, but they mysteriously disappear in the next shots. (In the extended cut, after the chief is knocked down after the bell ring, he picks up his dog tags and throw them out of the ring.) See more »
This episode might be the worst episode of the series. As others pointed out it was like a bad soap opera. I won't lie I never was a fan of the Starbuck character and hated that they wasted an entire episode on a plot that was going nowhere. I rather watch an episode about a ship full of cylons, at least they are interesting unlike the forced Apollo/Starbuck romantic tension*yawn*.
Not to be picky either I hate how the show has Starbuck boxing with males at an equal level. Chances are guys who work out a lot(such as military men) will over power a very strong female, but Starbuck seems to be a Mary Sue in that regard that she is easily defeats Hotdog. How come the other girls on the Battlestar had to fight other girls, but Starbuck gets lifted to this unbelievable level.
