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

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 ...

Great episode, maybe the best of Season 4 ... 'till now!
13 February 2009 | by (Macedonia) – See all my reviews

I love Battlestar Galactica. It's the only SF show i watch and get excited about. My taste says that the first two seasons were amazing and slightly better than the third one. The first part of the fourth season was not disappointing at all but will it be remembered as the best season, we'll see. It depends on the final 10 episodes. I believe in Ronald D.Moore and his ability to write inspiring stuff, i am sure he wont disappoint us. But do not expect anything, you might not guess what is coming next. This episode is the direction i hope the final episodes will follow, it got action, it got thrills and it got some conclusions that i hope will lead in a great ending of this series.
