Galactica's and Pegasus' vipers are at a deadlock, waiting for the first one to fire. Then Starbuck comes back from spying on the Cylon vessel. President Roslin negotiates a temporary truce between commander Adama and admiral Cain. The joint forces will attack the Cylon fleet with the unusual ship and Helo and Tyrol's execution will be postponed. Roslin advises Adama to kill Cain. She fears the future of the civilian fleet. Tigh tries to find out what happened to the civilian ships that apparently once traveled with Pegasus. Cain seems impressed with Starbuck and promotes her to CAG for Pegasus. She wants an unconventional plan for the attack on the mysterious Cylon vessel. She asks Dr. Baltar to interrogate the Cylon about it. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


The stealth ship, "Blackbird" piloted by Starbuck, is used much like the SR-71 spy plane, also nicknamed "Blackbird," which was in active service for the CIA and military from 1963 through 1998 plus one additional year for NASA. There were a total of 32 aircraft built, most of which are mothballed but able to be restored for service if need be. As with Tyrol's Blackbird, which was designed for speed, the SR-71 remains the fastest airplane ever built. See more »
