Left without her medication in Galactica’s brig, President Roslin’s condition is worsening rapidly, to the point that she sometimes doesn’t remember where she is. Commander Adama goes under the knife for a surgery that will last for hours – and still may not keep him alive. Colonel Tigh is deteriorating as well, largely by his own doing as he leans ever more heavily on old habits to cope with the pressures of command. Those pressures intensify when the Quorum of Twelve arrives, demanding access to the imprisoned President, and the press begins to demand answers from Tigh as well. Apollo takes off on a search and rescue mission to find Galactica’s crashed crew members on Kobol, and a party of Cylons is preparing a deadly surprise for his arrival. The few survivors left from the crash must prevent the Cylons from ambushing the search and rescue mission – but discipline, and the chain of command, are rapidly breaking down among them. One will lose their nerve, another will lose perspective, another will lose their innocence, and then one will lose their life.
