The insurrection against the Cylon occupation reaches its tipping point: with the grounded Colonial ships on New Caprica restored to flight-readiness, the battle to drive the Cylons off the planet or simply destroy their ground presence begins in earnest. Galactica jumps right into the planet’s atmosphere, launching her Vipers before jumping back into space, where Adama finds himself facing more Cylon basestars than he bargained for. Apollo wrestles with his orders – to take Pegasus and lead what’s left the civilian fleet to the safety of Earth – and ultimately decides not to follow them, knowing that one of the two Battlestars won’t return from the fight. When Gaeta pulls a gun to bring Baltar’s presidency to an end, Baltar begs him for death. And when Tigh learns that his wife sold the resistance out to the Cylons to save his life, it falls to him to deliver her sentence.
