After the Cylons destroy two of the fleet's Agro ships and cripple the last remaining one, Adama hopes to swap an old energizer for seed on the the planet Sectar in Quadrant Zeta. Unfortunately, Siress Belloby won't give up the energizer unless the commander courts her. Down on the planet, the inhabitants of the small Agro community of Serenity are looking for a new dispensable constable to hold off the Borays, who raid the town each high moon.

Guest star Barry Nelson was leaving for England to begin shooting on The Shining (1980) when he was cast in this episode. Costume designer Jean-Pierre Dorléac had to meet him at the New York Airport where Nelson was changing planes to return to Los Angeles to size him up for his costume. On his first day of shooting, Nelson arrived at seven for a fitting and Dorléac had him on set in costume at ten. See more »

Flight Sgt. Jolly: Greenbean, form on me. There's a pair going after the Agro-Ships on the perimeter.
Greenbean: You would worry about that. If they hit those birds, you'll have nothing to eat, Jolly.
Flight Sgt. Jolly: That isn't funny, Greenbean. Hurry.

A humorous re-telling of High Noon
9 September 2010 | by ScaargeSee all my reviews

Battlestar Galactica is one of those cheesy shows that, truth to tell, is hard to dislike.

This one is kind of an odd duck, because while the situation the Colony fleet finds itself in is serious (even dire), the episode itself plays out with a generous sampling of humor sprinkled here and there. Some of the humor is a bit too, too... (e.g, Adama being pursued by Belloby plays itself out about like you'd expect). But much of it is actually funny, and kind of charming in that 1970's way, and--best of all--the episode is never dull.

As a bonus, look for a cameo by Olan Soule, the voice of Batman in those Super Friends cartoons. He plays the guy in charge of the fleet's "agro ship."
