Know Thy Enemy

CapricaDaniel Graystone’s star is rising again; after selling his board of directors on the notion of the Cylon as a tireless servant in every household in the Twelve Colonies, he is once again unstoppable. But one man can still bring him up short: his chief competitor, from whom Sam Adama stole the vital component that makes the Cylon prototype work. With a single accusation of corporate espionage, and murder, Graystone finds himself on the defensive again. In Caprica City, terrorist bombings continue, attributed to the monotheistic Soldiers of the One group, and Sister Clarice grows more desperate to find Zoe’s virtual world avatar – desperate enough and bold enough to try to talk her way into the Graystones’ inner sanctum. Clarice’s efforts are also drawing her to the very dangerous attention of an STO militant named Barnabas.
