Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Number Six / Caprica / Sonja


With Hera now likely in the hands of John Cavil, Admiral Adama sends out search teams to locate The Colony, the Cylon home world if you will, that Ellen Tigh says is the only place she imagines she could be. Adama reluctantly comes to the conclusion that the Galactica has reached the end of its days. He orders all repair activities halted and decides to strip the ship and share everything that is salvageable with the rest of the fleet. Starbuck meanwhile shares with Gaius Baltar what she found on the uninhabitable Earth. He subsequently - and quite publicly - proclaims her to be an angel. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


In the scene where Boomer arrives at The Colony and is landing her Raptor, there are a circle of Cylon Raiders, some lifting off for departure, some parked. Amongst these, are several very similar to the ships the Cylons used in the original series, but, there are two Raiders of an unfamiliar design. While being similar to the standard Cylon Raider (not the Cylon 'Heavy' Raider), these Raiders have much longer Wings which project straight ahead, and the centre section, which contains the Cylon pilot is also elongated and projects forward separate from the ship itself. This is their only appearance in the series. The centre section is separate, still unconnected - but, rather than the small, narrow space which separates the wings from the central pod of a standard Cylon Raider , there is a deep, long trough, which runs parallel to that of the wings.

Set up for end of the Season....
11 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The president is having visions of the opera house again. Her cancer is progressing to a state where she is losing her mind. Cara Thrace is trying to tap into Landers mind for more information about who she is. Helio tries to take a suicide mission to the cyclon base camp because he doesn't care anymore about his life. He doesn't care because his wife is dead.

The head cyclon(Helen) tries to convince Ty to send the fleet to the cyclon base. She says that he should try to keep the cyclons race going, but he refuses because he thinks Galactica is his real home.

The six model rejects Baltars moves on her because she has changed unlike him.

Kara Thace gets baltar to test her dog tags to see what she really is. Baltar finds out that she is a resurrected human, however considering it is baltar he could be deceiving her and the crew for some ulterior motive.

Baltar's is getting stronger, his mysticism is appealing to the hopelessness of the crew of Galactica. Adama is not liking baltar sermons because he does not want false hope sweeping through the fleet.

Hera can project like cyclons, this surprises boomer and it makes her more appealing to boomer. Boomer gives Hera over to Cavil(-aka quantum leap dude) and who knows what he will do to her.

Finally, Adama is going to abandon the ship due to the bad conditions of the Galactica.
