The trial of Gaius Baltar enters its last stages and Lee suggests they try to get a mistrial. Lt. Gaeta lies on the stand, hurting Baltar's defense. Lee is called as a witness in an attempt to discredit his father. The tribunal delivers its controversial verdict which does not sit well with everyone. Chief Tyrol begins to hear the same tune that Tigh, Anders and Tory Foster hear. The four of them meet and come to a startling conclusion. Meanwhile, Roslin and Athena realize they have had the same dream or projection and Caprica Six, in the brig, had the same vision. The fleet finally arrives at its destination, the Ionian nebula, but don't seem to have managed to dupe the Cylons. With the trial over, Lee returns to duty and while on patrol is contacted by someone they had all assumed was lost. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Bear McCreary's newly composed theme underlying the lyrics of "All Along the Watchtower" is repeated throughout using electric sitar, harmoniums, duduk, yialli tanbur and electric violin. At the end, Steve Bartek plays the theme on an electric guitar, tuned down to C# minor. (The lowest string on a guitar -- in terms of pitch -- is normally tuned to an E note.) See more »


Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: [at Baltar's Trial] Did the defendant make mistakes? Sure. He did. Serious mistakes. But did he actually commit any crimes? Did he commit treason? No. I mean, it was an impossible situation. When the Cylons arrived, what could he possibly do? What could anyone have done?

Music at the end of Crossroadds Part 2
27 March 2007 | by ccollins5202See all my reviews

For your information...the song at the end of Battlestar Galactica Crossroads Part 2 is All Along The Watchtower. One of Hendrix most famous songs of all time. Not to mention the fame that Bob Dylan brought the song. So before you go making comments about topics you don't understand, you should check your facts. I think the end was great simply based off the fact it didn't do the typical huge battle and someone dies scenario like every other show out there is doing. Just because things aren't being destroyed or hurled into space doesn't mean it isn't quality. The Battlestar Galactica writers are some of the best I have seen in a long time, and certainly deserve being recognized for not cheese balling another sci-fi show.
