Admiral Adama spends his day roaming the halls of the Galactica, preparing for his ceremonial final Viper flight off the ship. He bumps into Hot Dog (played by Edward James Olmos’ real-life son Bodie), who is still carrying around Nicholas. Hot Dog took the photos of the dead Viper pilots off the memorial wall to take with him. Adama checks out the wall and the many photos left up. He sees a picture of Hera and gets mad.
He then checks on Starbuck and asks if Baltar’s outing was the truth. She tells him about burning her own dead body, and while she doesn’t know what she is, Adama knows that she’s his daughter. He’s really there to ask Hybrid Anders a question. She plugs him in, which takes us back to Samuel Anders being interviewed in a locker room hot tub back on Caprica. He talks about how all he cares about while playing Pyramid is the mathematical and physical joy of the perfect throw. How did no one realize he was a Cylon until the season 3 finale?
Baltar interrupts Lee’s traffic directing to talk about the potential rebirth of the fleet after the Galactica is gone. His only goal is to get a seat on the government. If memory serves, things didn’t end so well the last time Gaius Baltar was involved with politics. Lee is smart enough not to trust anything Baltar ever does, so he refuses to acknowledge Baltar’s followers in the Quorum. Baltar is also a fairly smart guy, so he acknowledges that “I wouldn’t trust me either.”
On the hangar deck, Adama and Starbuck show up and put a giant piece of red tape on the floor. Adama has had a change of heart and he’s ordering a mission to find Hera because they found out the location of the Cylon Colony from Anders.. The entire ship is talking about this daredevil mission which is a volunteer assignment and anyone is welcome to join, even former military officers jailed due to their part in the mutiny. Ellen Tigh informs Tory that the Final Five will be going.
