Litmus

Battlestar GalacticaAmong the latest group of visitors to board Galactica is a face all too familiar to Tigh and Adama – Galactica’s former public relations officer, a man who turned out to be a Cylon. When Adama catches up with him, the man turns around and reveals that he’s a walking bomb, hitting the detonator switch. Tigh is barely able to hustle Adama to safety, but others around them aren’t so lucky. Adama decides the time has come to go public with the news that the Cylons can take human form, against the advice of both Tigh and President Roslin. He assigns the ship’s Master at Arms to begin an inquiry, and she insists on having a free hand in the investigation. But she goes beyond that, accusing Tyrol, Boomer and a member of Tyrol’s deck crew of Cylon collaboration and even accusing Commander Adama of creating the conditions that made the attack possible.
