Tensions run high as the two Battlestars prepare for a simultaneous strike on the Cylon fleet. With all fighters assigned to make an massive attack run on the resurrection ship, Commander Adama and Admiral Cain must each take on a Cylon base star with their respective ships. On the Pegasus, it seems like execution day has arrived a bit early for Tyrol and Helo, until Colonel Fisk reminds his own crewmen that carrying out the death sentence in their own way would make them no better than the men they want to kill. Fisk has other matters of conscience on his mind as well, as Cain has assigned him and a Marine squadron to Galactica with orders to “terminate Adama’s command” on her signal. Starbuck and Apollo also aren’t having an easy time with their orders to relieve Cain of command by force, but Starbuck insists on being ready to carry out the mission, despite warming to Cain’s more straightforward approach to fighting the Cylons. The resurrection ship is destroyed, but one lone Cylon, aided by Baltar, is ready to change the Colonial chain of command before either Adama or Admiral Cain deliver another death sentence.
