A Day In The Life

Battlestar GalacticaFor the rest of Galactica’s crew, it’s a routine day, but for Admiral Adama, it’s a day he marks, and yet dreads, every year – his anniversary. Even all these years later, it seems he can only remember the arguments. For Tyrol and Cally, the day starts with a routine argument, but when the airlock they’re assigned to work on suddenly traps them due to a slight loss of pressure, their normal day becomes a life-or-death crisis. Even with their expertise, there’s no way to just open the door and return to the ship – the only way out is to blow the outer airlock hatch and try to catch them in a raptor just outside, a last-ditch maneuver that’s as like to kill them as it is to save them.
