Boomer and another Viper pilot return to the Galactica after scouting ahead of the fleet, but unbeknownst to the crew, the two pilots have brought a fatal disease back with them, rendering Galactica’s entire pool of pilots unfit to fly – with the exception of Apollo and Starbuck, who are also on their own patrol assignment. Adama desperately orders his son and Starbuck to train the shuttle pilots – virtually all women – for combat flight. The new pilots’ first orders are to raid a Cylon installation and bring back a cure for Galactica’s crew.
