Baltar’s Escape

Battlestar Galactica (original)The Council of Twelve is infuriated with Adama’s command decisions involving the six Terrans, and he is reined in, relieved of all but military command – and even military orders must be filtered through an appointee of the Council. The Council then votes to open a dialogue with the Eastern Alliance hunters who have just been captured by Adama’s crew. But the Alliance prisoners have no intention of staying put – and they enlist the help of Baltar, who has a personal score to settle with the Colonials. The Council, without Adama’s advice, is taken hostage, and Baltar stands ready to deliver the fleet into the waiting hands of the Cylons.
