This is one of the episodes that hasn't aged well. In fact, it's aged horribly. There's a welcome return of the ship of lights, but that's about all. Apollo ends up guided by the actor who played Devon in Knight Rider. The plan is to negotiate for peace with the Eastern Alliance, who were never very good villains anyway (think Space Nazis). The costumes and sci-fi elements of this episode (such as some weird cyborg people) look cheap and if this was the first episode of Galactica you ever saw you'd probably dismiss it as camp nonsense. Skip this one if you can.
