Battlestar GalacticaPresident Roslin is rushed into Galactica’s sick bay, her cancer inevitably coming to its terminal stage. At the same time, an accident with the weapons aboard one of Galactica’s Vipers makes Chief Tyrol suspicious. He discovers evidence of sabotage, and the trail leads to an organized protest group within the Colonial civilian fleet that wants Admiral Adama to broker a peace with the Cylons. A member of that movement is brought to Galactica, but when he refuses to give Adama assurances that no further sabotage or violence will be carried out, he winds up in Galactica’s brig. Adama is dealing with a dilemma of his own: President Roslin’s last orders to him are very clear – Boomer’s half-human, half-Cylon child is to be aborted. Despite protests from Baltar and Helo, Adama intends to carry out those orders. And as Roslin begins to fade away, it quickly becomes apparent to Baltar that nobody in the fleet relishes the prospect that he will soon ascend to the presidency.
