Storyline

The Fleet refuses to cooperate with Cylon engineers and Adama decides to put and end to it. He sends the Quorum a message stating that unless they wish to join Zarek in the cell, they get their people in line. However, Gaeta is already freed Zarek with the help of other would-be-revolutionists. They allow Zarek to leave Galactica on a raptor. He lands on Colonial One and enters a gathering of the Quorum. Meanwhile, Anders gets ambushed and captured. At the CIC, Gaeta cleverly manipulates everyone else until the time is at hand for the revolution to begin. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

Quotes

Tom Zarek: [just killed Chief Petty Officer Laird, who was about to inform CIC of Zarek's departure]
[grimly]
Tom Zarek: He won't be the last.
Lt. Felix Gaeta: Get on that ship.
Tom Zarek: Not yet.
Lt. Felix Gaeta: [getting agitated] Damn it, I need you to...
Tom Zarek: I know what you need. I also know a little about revolution. Success doesn't hinge on some grand operatic idea or "the will of the people." It hangs in the cumulative moments, each one building on the next, and it can be lost with the slightest hesitation!
Lt. Felix Gaeta: I started this, and I'll see it through! Now get on ...

8 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The mutiny is about as believable as a 3 dollar bill. it looks like an excuse to bump off a few more characters (after giving them 15 minutes of fame), inject a stream of violence and cursing and fill in a few episodes. It is difficult to take the idea seriously, let alone watch it. I will not go into a long explanation of that but some of the other comments have made some solid points that I would concur with.

The worst of it is that at this point, there is little reason to care about any of the characters with the possible exception of Athena (who seems to have faded into insignificance anyway). It is difficult to recognize a coherent character in any of them, so what is there to like? That is, unless you call being abusive and manipulative of everyone around the same thing as coherence.
