The Cylons are bitterly divided over how to deal with the Cylon Raiders, who refuse to attack the Colonial Fleet because of the recent detection of the Final Five within said Fleet. Meanwhile, Admiral Adama and crew send Lee Adama off into his new life as a member of the Quorum of Twelve, and Adama has to deal with the possibility that Kara Thrace may very well be right about her knowing how to get to Earth.

Did You Know?


In this episode we learn about the lobotomizing of the "tin jobs" and about the component that restricts their higher functions. In the series of Galactica novels produced after the first TV series it is learned that a centurion has the physiology for accommodating up to three brains. The soldiers have one brain and, the centurions have two brains. (Remember in the old series, the three cylon crew members of a raider have two soldiers and one centurion in command.) If a centurion does extremely well, it may be given a third brain. This is very rare as it provides a level of autonomy that could be dangerous. This is similar to what develops in the fourth season of this series. See more »


When Laura is talking with Adama in his quarters, she takes off her glasses and sets them on top of a file folder. The glasses flip upside down and back several times during the course of the conversation. See more »


Captain Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace: [upon being released from the brig and told she's being given a ship] So you think I'm right?
Admiral William Adama: Maybe. Maybe not. But I know she is, the President. She's been right all along. I'm tired of losing. I'm tired of turning away from the things that I want to believe in. And I believe you when you say that you'll die before you stop trying. And I won't lose you again.
Admiral William Adama: Now go. Find a way to Earth.

Special rules for Adamas
7 December 2019 | by carey-941-755692See all my reviews

Watching the big sendoff for Lee Adama, I could not help but remember all the drama in the last season about keeping every available body working. Now the son of the big boss decides to leave the service and it is just accepted.

While the pilots are congratulating Adama, I would expect the rest of the grunts to be seething in anger.
