With Starbuck having gained the tenuous trust of the rebel Cylons aboard their damaged base ship, a jump back to the fleet is ordered, but there’s just one problem – the Demetrius is late in joining the party, putting the already weakened Cylon ship in the line of Galactica’s fire…until Colonel Tigh mysteriously countermands Adama’s orders and calls off the attack just in time. The Cylons propose a trade: they offer Adama and Roslin the coordinates to their Resurrection Hub, the mobile central repository of Cylon consciousness that makes it possible for their Resurrection Ships to function. But in exchange, the Cylons want the fleet’s help in reviving the “boxed” model known to the fleet as D’anna Biers, believing that her knowledge of the final five models will be a key revelation on the road to Earth. Tigh, already facing the uncomfortable question of how he knew to call off the attack, suggests that Adama shouldn’t keep up the fleet’s end of the bargain. Among themselves, fearing human treachery, the Cylons have a similar conversation. And as both forces prepare to betray one another, President Roslin decides to visit the Hybrid for herself and decipher the mystery of her opera house visions.
