Storyline

D'Anna Biers, a nosy journalist from the Fleet News Service, is preparing an item on the Gideon incident, complaining that no marines or officers were charged for shooting the civilians. Suddenly she's asked by commander Adama and president Roslin to follow daily life on Galactica. She's given full access and is not required to create a positive story. D'Anna agrees with the offer. While some of the crew like Lee Adama dislike what she's doing, Dr. Baltar tries desperately to draw her attention. Biers is more interested in the Gideon story, especially after Tigh is getting a death threat. Meanwhile the air group is still having a shortage of pilots, forcing them to be on duty for 15 hours continuously. Louanne Katraine, one of the pilots, seems to be unable to cope with the stress. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

D'anna Biers: [interviewing] You seem to think that your pilots deserve special consideration.
Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: Actually, I do. Like everyone else, my pilots have lost their families, their friends, everyone they ever cared about; but on top of that they're asked to put their lives on the line every single day, for a fleet that seems more interested in what they do wrong than in what they do right. They're not asking for your pity, but they damn well deserve your respect.

Possibly the best of the first 21 episodes - and not a Cylon raider in sight
3 April 2018 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

But a couple in sound. A balanced examination of the ethics of journalism (the value of truth vs. the value of security, subjectivity vs. objectivity, etc.), with a final twist that may give you goosebumps. And my Gods is Lucy Lawless beautiful! Even more so than in her "Xena" years. She could have been a supermodel, but we were lucky enough that she chose acting instead. ***1/2 out of 4.
