Fighting a losing battle in a Cylon ambush, Apollo is forced down on an isolated, sparsely-populated human colony, where lawlessness has set in, forcing the pilot to hide with a widow and her son. The settlement is held in the thrall of an extortionist named Lacerta, who demands tributes from the townsfolk – or else they’ll face a fatal confrontation with “Red-Eye.” Apollo discovers that Red-Eye is, in fact, a malfunctioning Cylon which Lacerta has learned to control. He also discovers that the late husband of the woman sheltering him was also a Colonial Viper pilot…who died trying to rid the colony of the lone Cylon. Apollo’s only hope for escape is to engage in an old-fashioned shootout with the alien.
