Moments after Boomer shoots Commander Adama twice at point-blank range, a Cylon base star appears near Galactica. Left in command, Colonel Tigh orders the Colonial fleet to make an immediate jump to predetermined escape coordinates, even though the crew members on Kobol – including Baltar – will be trapped there, and the fleet’s senior doctor won’t be on board Galactica to treat Adama’s wounds. Worse yet, when Galactica arrives at those coordinates, it’s the only Colonial ship there. On Caprica, Starbuck is stunned by Helo’s devotion to the Cylon Boomer he says is pregnant with his child. Even when Boomer steals the Cylon ship Starbuck used to come to Caprica, Helo argues that she’s different from the other Cylons. On Kobol, injuries and lack of supplies take their toll, but the survivors of the crash discover that someone else is on the planet – deadly enemies who don’t fight like Cylons. And on Galactica, with President Roslin and Apollo both behind bars, Colonel Tigh insists that the ship is still under Adama’s command, and that “the Old Man”‘s way of doing things is still very much in effect. But Tigh may have to think outside that box if Galactica is to rejoin and protect the rest of the fleet.
