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

Trivia

This marks the first time the "Cylon" introduction was not used. In this case, it's already an established fact and there are no more mysteries about who the Cylons are or where they are or what the plan is. See more »

Quotes

President Laura Roslin: Felix Gaeta. Who would have thought? You probably knew him better then anyone back on New Caprica.
Dr. Gaius Baltar: Well, obviously his loyalties were divided even back then. Seems we both made rather bad choices when it comes to our Presidential aides-de-camp, wouldn't you say?
[making reference to Tory Foster, Roslin's Chief of Staff who was eventually revealed to be a Cylon. Roslin reluctantly nods her head in agreement with Baltar]

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.
