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

President Laura Roslin: [trying to convince an unsympathetic Baltar to let her use his wireless to make a fleet wide broadcast] The thing is that I never really believed in your conversion, so I was counting on your well-honed sense of self-preservation.
Dr. Gaius Baltar: I'm so sick of your insinuations. I recall your sudden allegiance to the priestess Elshoa and the Scrolls of Pythia the last time your political fortunes were in doubt. Tell me, how is that working for you now?
President Laura Roslin: If it makes you happy, maybe we're both frauds and this is...

Very well done and very real
2 November 2009 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

When a society loses hope and sense of a good future, society collapses. The social structure becomes empty and the sense of order is gone. It happened in the past and I can give a "live example". Argentina went under a crisis in 2001 and today there is no real sense of order since everything was seriously affected, politics and the economy. The Argentina society accepted whatever made feel better by politicians after the crisis , not meaning it was good in the long term. The "mutiny" in 2001 was done by its own political class because the economics were bad and not believed the presidency. So if you put a bunch of people in an extreme situation like this episode portraits with no hope(the earth is gone) and disbelief, mutiny is likely to happen.
