Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Having accomplished its mission, the rebel Cylon Basestar joins the Colonial fleet. D'Anna Biers distrusts their former enemies and makes it quite clear that she will execute President Roslin and all of the others from the Colonial fleet hostage unless the four of the Final 5 in the fleet are allowed to leave and go to the Basestar. Acting President Lee Adama realizes that if he lets the four go to the rebel ship, nothing will prevent D'Anna from simply jumping away and leaving them behind. A tense stand-off ensues with both sides threatening to destroy the other with their nukes. Tory Foster goes to the Basestar on the pretense of taking Roslin her medication. Saul Tigh finally tells the Admiral the truth and soon the other two are known. Starbuck meanwhile notices an anomaly in the navigation system of the pristine Viper she brought back to the ship. She believes it is a signal from Earth. Written by garykmcd

Mid Season Surprise
2 March 2009 | by (East Coat, North America) – See all my reviews

I always wondered what would happen when the Colonial found Earth. It is very interested that we do not actually see Earth from space, only from the sad faces of the people who have rediscovered it ...

How did that Colonial transmitter get to Earth? Why was Starbuck's old viper crashed on the planet? Her ship was destroyed by the gravity well of a large gas giant, some three months (or more) before they arrived at Earth. Her new Viper was the only ship that could initially pickup the Colonial beacon. We did see a glimpse of 'present day' earth from the end of season 3, where Starbuck comes back, showing what is the South East United States: Floridia, Gulf of Mexico, south east US coastline.... So they may have arrived 50,000 years in our past or 50,000 years in our future (or somewhere in between) and probably not during a major ice ages.

I think it would have been nice had they stayed in orbit, checking out what actually happened (this could take months)... but I would image they were so depressed at their discovery, they decided to put some distance between.

Who or what is the 5th cyclon? How did the final 5 get to Earth? How did they get off? When did the skin jobs start? Tigh was around for 30 + years. More importantly what or who is orchestrating all this?
