Kobol’s Last Gleaming – Part 2

Battlestar GalacticaCommander Adama calls for President Roslin’s resignation over the secret orders that sent Starbuck to Caprica, based on nothing more than ancient prophecies. When the President refuses to step down, Colonel Tigh and Apollo are assigned to lead a strike team to remove her from power. Starbuck arrives at Caprica, and lands safely near the museum where the artifact is kept, and finds herself fighting for her life against one of the copies of Number Six. Helo, with his captive copy of Boomer still in tow, finds Starbuck just as the battle ends. When Starbuck tries to kill Boomer, Helo stops her – this Boomer Cylon is apparently biologically compatible enough with humans to be pregnant with Helo’s child. Adama assigns the clone of Boomer aboard Galactica to pick up where Starbuck left off, commanding what could be a suicide mission take out the Cylon base ship orbiting Kobol and keeping a downed Raptor crew – including Baltar – trapped on the planet. Even if this Boomer is able to overcome her Cylon programming enough to carry out those orders, she may return to Galactica with a new, and equally destructive, mission to carry out.
