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 best episodes of BSG
28 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

I consider this episode to be one of the best of the series due to its clever construction and the absolutely fantastic soundtrack. I'm a little disappointed to see that some people haven't understood that it's not about a boxing match. That is just a pretext that introduces us to all the drama, emotions and struggles which make the true purpose of the episode. I believe this is what makes BSG so unique and remarkable compared with other SciFi shows. The human elements such as drama and personal relationships aren't of secondary importance here. They get treated with the same respect as the main SciFi theme and that's why BSG is so special.

I see that some hardcore SciFi fans are annoyed with the lack of Cylons in this episode. These complaints are totally irrelevant since the show is not called "Cylons". It's name is Battlestar Galactica. That means it's about the ship and its crew and this episode definitely respects that.
