Facing a looming deadline to produce an army of 100,000 Cylon warrior robots for the government of Caprica, Daniel Graystone decides to cut his losses and focus on business, selling his pyramid team to rival Tomas Vergis. But pressure is increasing on Graystone to deliver that army on schedule – or ahead of it, as a high-ranking official from Caprica’s defense ministry tips her hand that it’s not a very well-kept secret that the processor at the heart of the one existing Cylon prototype was stolen from Vergis’ labs. The price for the ministry turning a blind eye to that fact will be delivery in a week instead of a month. Faced with this new deadline, Graystone decides to reformat and copy the Cylon chip, even if it erases the lase vestiges of Zoe. Zoe tries to get Lacy Rand to accelerate the timetable for getting her Cylon body off Caprica, but the price for securing that favor from Barnabas is a high one for Lacy: she’ll have to kill someone to get what she wants. Having evaded her destiny as the first in a new breed of soldiers for so long, Zoe now decides she’ll have to kill to survive. In the virtual world that is New Cap City, Tamara Adams realizes that she’ll have to appear to die to save her father, and death is starting to look like a pretty good option for escaping the hell that is Amanda Graystone’s life as well.
