Preview of 'Battlestar Galactica' Episode 4.8
It's been nearly two weeks since the last new episode of Battlestar Galactica, which left us with a shocking cliffhanger.  After Roslin and Baltar traveled to the Cylon Basestar to chat with the Hybrid, the ship unexpectedly jumped to an unknown location.  Where they went, and how they'll possibly get back, remains a mystery.  Hopefully this Friday's episode, entitled "Sine Qua Non," will fill us in on Roslin and Baltar whereabouts.  The episode will also deal with the power struggles that erupt in the Colonial Fleet following the president's disappearance.

To prepare for this week's new installment we have two preview videos of "Sine Qua Non."

After glancing at the videos below, it looks like this week's episode is going to feature Adama (Edward James Olmos) going on a rampage.  The Admiral has been rather quiet and laid back lately, but Natalie's death and Roslin's abduction definitely seem to bring out his angry side.  I'm all for any plot line that forces Adama to lay down the law, so "Sine Qua Non" should prove to be an interesting hour.

In case you're wondering about the meaning behind the episode's title, Sine Qua Non is a Latin legal term referring to an indispensable and essential action, condition, or ingredient.  It's amazing what you can learn from Wikipedia.

In this promo for the episode, Adama unleashes his anger upon Lee, Athena, Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff), and Colonel Tigh (Michael Hogan).

In this clip, Lee (Jamie Bamber) tells his father that Zarek (Richard Hatch) may be sworn in as president. He also confronts Athena (Grace Park) about the murder of Natalie.

The new episode of Battlestar Galactica airs Friday at 10pm on the Sci Fi Channel.
