Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Adama considers Saul and Tyrol's suggestion that the Fleet should integrate Cylon jump technology since it will triple the distance they will be able to cover before they run out of fuel. But the Cylon's condition is that they will be allowed to join the Fleet, for safety against Cavil, who's still out there. Ultimately, the decision is up to President Roslin, but Zarek calls the Quorum and gets them to carry the motion that no Cylon be allowed aboard any Colonial vessel unless permitted by the ship's captain. Tyrol learns from Dr. Cottle that Cally had their child tested and the results indicated that Tyrol is not the father - therefore the child is fully human. Roslin starts her climb up from the depths of despair she had fallen to soon after the Fleet found Earth. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

President Laura Roslin: I've played my role in this farce. "A dying leader will guide the people to the..." Blah, blah, blah. Frakking... Blah, blah. I've been there, I've done that, now what? Is there another role that I have to play for the rest of my life? Do you remember what we said on New Caprica? How we talked about trying to live for today? Well, you better think about that, because maybe tomorrow really isn't coming. Maybe today is all we have left. And maybe, just maybe, I've earned the right to live a ...

Coup d'état
10 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the realisation that they can't stay on Earth the Colonial Fleet and the rebel Cylons head away; hoping to find a suitable home but with no specific location in mind and certainly no expectation of finding any other people. Since the Cylons are now part of the fleet they wish to be given full citizenship and a place on the Quorum in exchange for Cylon upgrades that will triple the efficiency of the colonial FTL drives. The problem is Tom Zarek pushes for the council to give each ship the right to decide whether or not the want Cylon technology. Several decide they don't want it and Adama is forced to issue a mandate stating that the installation is a military matter. The mining ship mutinies and under instruction from Zarek jumps away from the fleet. Clearly he has gone to far so Adama orders his arrest. While this is going on Lt. Gaeta is getting more and more bitter; feeling that the Cylons are getting special treatment while he is expected to get on with life after losing his leg. Ultimately this leads to him making a drastic move that will affect everybody in the fleet.

This was not an action filled episode but set up events that will have probably have repercussions for much of the remaining series. It is hard to judge an episode like this in isolation; I feel that it set things up for what is to come in a good way although I only know that because I've seen later episodes before! The acting was solid as always; I was particularly impressed with Alessandro Juliani's portrayal of Lt. Gaeta as his character went from being a fairly inoffensive character who quietly obeyed orders to a bitter man ready to lead a Coup d'état. It was also good to learn how Tyrol and Cali could have a baby without him being considered special like Hera.
