Twelve hours later, the fleet is reunited thanks to a Raptor that found the fleet. Admiral Hoshi is very happy to go back to being a lieutenant, but Romo Lampkin has taken to the presidency like a duck to water. Down on the New Earth, a recon mission finds that there are people living on it who are genetically similar enough to humans so that reproduction is a possibility to continue the survival of the species. However, the natives of New Earth are an early tribal people with no language and rudimentary tools.
However, everyone agrees that settling on New Earth is a good idea, so the Cylons agree to let the Centurions fly off on the basestar while Hybrid Anders will control the entire fleet and fly all the ships into the sun, leaving the humans scattered on the planet. Lampkin wants to build cities, but Lee wants to stop the cycle, so instead they all agree to live simple lives.
As Adama takes the last Viper flight off the Galactica, he remembers turning down the high-paying job offer that he received before the fall, instead sticking with his military gig. He and a dying Laura Roslin look out at the wildlife of this new planet and Adama says they’re going to call it Earth, because even though it’s not the same place as before, “Earth” is more of an idea. She wants to go, so he packs up a Raptor to fly off, but first he says goodbye to Lee and Starbuck.
On their Raptor flight, Adama talks about the log cabin they’ll build together while Laura remembers her blind date that ended with sex before she kicked him out. Then she called up Adar and agreed to join his campaign, so I guess this one last fling was her last hurrah before entering the world of politics that led her to where she is now. After the flashback, Roslin quietly passes away. When Adama notices, he cries, slips his wedding ring onto her, and finds a place where he promises to build their cabin.
