Flight Of The Phoenix

Battlestar GalacticaEven after the recent reuniting of the Colonial fleet, nerves are frayed and tempers flare aboard Galactica. Chief Tyrol and Lt. Helo finally come to blows over their shared feelings for Boomer, and Starbuck finds herself defending Helo’s actions to the rest of the fighter pilots. President Roslin’s latest diagnosis brings grim news: she has mere weeks to live, and there’s no guarantee that her cancer won’t spread to her brain and rob her of her ability to lead the fleet. Tyrol has been occupying himself with a new project as well, attempting to fabricate a new Viper from the few materials available, and finds that some of his crewmates think he’s wasting time and resources. To make matters worse, Galactica’s systems are infected by an adaptive Cylon computer virus, which begins to execute numerous options to try to kill the crew. Commander Adama, despite his distrust and lingering rage over Boomer, decides to seek her help in fighting the virus – with no guarantee that she won’t deliver Galactica to an approaching Cylon fleet.
