Storyline

Everyone is having to come to terms with the death of Starbuck. The Admiral reviews her file in tears and Sam Anders gets drunk but Apollo can't quite bring himself to place her photo on the wall of dead crewmen, as he had promised. Preparations are being finalized for Gaius Baltar's trial and Admiral Adama is one of 5 people selected at random to serve on the tribunal. As Tom Zarek had predicted however there is violence with Baltar's attorney is killed. His new attorney is Romo Lampkin and it's only by chance that Chief Tyrol uncovers a bomb meant to kill the lawyer. The Admiral puts his son Lee in charge of Lampkin's security but the two don't exactly see eye to eye on what that means. For Lee, it means ensuring that the disgraced ex-President gets a fair trial and his revived interest in the law leads him to become more involved. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The character, Romo Lampkin, got his first name from the writer, Michael Angeli, who combined the first two letters of creator Ronald D. Moore's first and last name. The name also pleased co-creator David Eick, who is a die-hard fan of The Dallas Cowboys and their star quarterback, Tony Romo. See more »

Quotes

Major Lee 'Apollo' Adama: You know, when I was nine, maybe ten, my grandfather... he would wave me over, and he would do this all the time, and then he'd say "Lee, be a good boy. Just don't be too good."

Guest star makes this a good one.
13 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If Mark Sheppard weren't in this episode, it would fall flat. Any fan of Firefly will recognize 'Badger' and his raspy but somehow friendly voice. He's one of those actors who can take ordinary lines and make them great.

And he does this here, because the writing is average, and some plot points are a bit weak. The 'mystery' solved seemed tacked on at the end. There is some good character stuff with the Adamas. And they mention Zack, who the writer's seem to have forgotten through all of the Lee/Starbuck troubles.

Not great, but above average for the season.
