Apollo and Starbuck come across a vessel they think may have come from Earth and take it aboard the Galactica. On board are two adults and four children in a state of suspended animation. Adama disagrees with the Council of Twelve about opening the sleeping chambers, for that may mean endangering the humans within. When the adult male, Michael, wakes up, he finds it difficult to breath the air on board the Galactica. Apollo, Starbuck and Cassiopea decide to escort the Lunar Shuttle Avion to its destination, hoping to find out if the travelers home, Terra, may be related to the planet Earth.

Just after Apollo shoots the barrels with his laser, the camera cuts back to Michael. As Michael is speaking to Apollo, an airplane can be seen flying by in the background (this could not be an alien craft of any kind, because the planet is uninhabited.) See more

All right, you two, I don't know what you're up to but I've had just about all I'm gonna take from you, now step aside!
Flight Sgt. Jolly
Reese, now you're endangering the lives of these children! Now surely not even you're that cruel!
[Reese pulls the blankets off the chambers revealing them to be empty
Jolly, you forgot the kids!
