Starbuck is discussing a plan to save the resistance group on Caprica, when reports are coming in of Cylon activity. A large ship is moving to Galactica. Then Gaeta receives colonial transponders. It's the Battlestar Pegasus, with admiral Cain on board. At first, the crew of Galactica seems overjoyed at their arrival, especially since much needed supplies are being delivered. Then reports start coming in about Cain's unorthodox ways of commanding. She also decides to merge both crews, ordering Apollo and Starbuck to join Pegasus' air group. Meanwhile a large Cylon vessel is discovered, guarded by two basestars. A reconnaissance mission is planned. Dr. Baltar is asked to interrogate a Cylon on the Pegasus. She's been tortured and turns out to be a Number Six copy.

[Dr. Baltar has been asked aboard the Battlestar Pegasus to examine their "Cylon prisoner"
Don't get too close. It killed seven of my crew. Do you want my guards to come in with you?
Feeling scared, Gaius? Want the big, bad soldiers to protect you from the mean old Cylon prisoner?
Doctor Gaius Baltar
No, I think we'll be just fine. Thank you.
[the Cylon Prisoner is shackled to the floor
Oh, my God.

My God, Gaius, it's me! Look at what they've done to her!

Open the door, now, please.
