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 ...

Enjoying it
6 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this episode and season is great. I like that the show is moving in an actual direction now, not just sitting in space running over and over. I don't think that the idea of mutiny is that far-fetched. Imagine if last year President Bush had told the troops, and the whole country, that we were going to ally with Al Qaeda so that we could get gas for the entire country under one dollar per gallon. Do those of you who think this episode is unrealistic really believe that situation would go over our country just fine, with no one rising against our leaders for that decision? Do you think that our Iraq veterans, who have seen their friends fall in battle against Middle Eastern terrorists, would be perfectly fine allying with them for some free gas, regardless of how charismatic our leader was? I don't. I for one am enjoying this season and looking forward to how it keeps moving on.
