Admiral Adama introduces Galactica’s crew to a tradition he has carried with him since his earliest commands: the shipwide boxing match. Any member of the crew can step into the ring, point to another member of the crew, and the fight is on, hopefully relieving pent-up aggression along the way. But in the still uneasy aftermath of the evacuation of New Caprica, old grudges have become out-in-the-open rivalries, and many are finding it difficult to let go of them – and all too easy to try to beat those rivals into a bloody pulp. Even Adama hismelf puts on a pair of boxing gloves, challenging the person he feels is responsible for starting the tide of crew members who left Galactica to settle on the planet over a year ago. But the final match of the night promises to be the most explosive, because there’s still no one who knows what happened between Starbuck and Apollo before they parted ways.
