Disturbed by recurring nightmares about Leoben, the Cylon who held her captive on New Caprica, Starbuck visits an oracle, who unsettles her even further with a prediction that Leoben is coming to find her. After this encounter, Starbuck is reluctant to seek further help with her nightmares, even though Anders is willing to accompany her to see a psychiatrist. During fleet refueling operations, a routine recon flight becomes anything but when Starbuck spots a Cylon raider and pursues it, nearly getting herself killed in a storm in the planet’s atmosphere. But afterward, on Galactica, a review of her gun camera footage shows no Cylon ship, and both Starbuck and her superiors start to wonder if she’s fit to fly. Apollo, convinced that she’ll overcome her problems, puts her back in the pilot’s seat and even offers to be her wingman…but it could prove to be their last mission together.
