Storyline

The crew is getting agitated and demoralized. Chief Galen Tyrol yet again has to scrap a viper, Gaeta yells at Tigh when he orders him to go through the computer program line by line to get rid of the Cylon virus still causing malfunctions. Meanwhile Helo is having trouble integrating in the crew. He even starts a fight with Tyrol over Boomer. Tyrol decides it's time for a change and starts constructing a new fighter. His crew, the pilots and Colonel Tigh all think it's a waste of time. Meanwhile the malfunctions caused by the virus are getting more severe. Dr. Baltar and Gaeta find out the virus is learning, already capable of taking over all the systems and very difficult to remove. Commander Adama asks Boomer for advice. She tells him it's a prelude for an all-out Cylon attack. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

This is the only episode of Battlestar Galactica, besides the first season episode #1.5, "You Can't Go Home Again", in which you see the biological insides of a Cylon Raider. See more »

Goofs

When the Galactica's Vipers are seen flying to face the Cylon fighters, several of the Vipers are clearly Mark 7's, different from the usual Mark 2's. As stated in previous episodes and established in the miniseries, all of Galactica's Mark 7's were destroyed save for one that Apollo kept aboard, so there should only have been one Viper Mark 7 visible.
