An outbreak of a contagious disease, which can kill its victims in just days if left untreated, is reported among the Saggitaron refugees still living aboard Galactica. A civilian doctor is treating most of the cases, but many are turning out to be fatal despite his treatments – or, as one Sagittaron woman claims, because of his treatments. Helo, assigned to protect the doctor and keep peace among the refugees, begins to wonder if the rumor is true. But when he runs into racism directed at the Saggitarons among the very officers whose help he needs to prove the accusations, Helo wonders if anyone would care if they turn out to be true.
