Flesh And Bone

Battlestar GalacticaThe captain of one of the Colonial ships reports that a copy of one of the known human Cylon variants has been sighted. While Commander Adama wants to desroy the Cylon immediately, President Roslin wants the man – a copy of the man who Adama encountered at the abandoned munitions depot – questioned. Adama assigns Starbuck to the task, and the Cylon tells her that he’s planted a nuclear bomb aboard one of the Colonial ships…but he won’t tell her which one, or where. Baltar gets an unexpected request from Boomer, who wants to be among the first members of the Galactica crew tested to see if she’s human or Cylon – and of course, the results on Baltar’s screen tell him that she’s Cylon. What Baltar doesn’t know is how to handle the news. As the clock counts down to the detonation of the bomb, Starbuck isn’t able to elicit any more than theological discussions from the Cylon, despite escalating her choice of coercion techniques. With mere minutes to go, President Roslin arrives with an unusual offer of amnesty, but what she gets in exchange is prehaps even more unsettling than a bomb.
