Review

A “miracle” encounter, full of triumph and hope, turns out to be anything but in tonight’s punch-to-the-gut double bill. Never shirking its responsibilities to show what goes on in times of war, Battlestar offers us a string of uncomfortable scenes that slowly crank up the tension in the fugitive fleet. It also gives James Callis the chance to offer another dimension to Dr Gaius Baltar. Just when we thought we had him down pat as the squirming, machiavellian “enemy within”, we see a devastated, guilt-ravaged man in love.

Standoffs pile up like they’re going out of fashion, but one scene involving cancer-stricken President Roslin and bullish Commander Adama – effectively the mother and father of the show – proves that the ice between them has well and truly thawed. But is it too late?

Summary

There is celebration throughout the fleet when the Galactica finds the Battlestar Pegasus, a warship long thought destroyed by the Cylons with the rest of the colonial forces. However, tensions soon begin to surface as the new admiral tries to assert her authority and two of Adama's crew are sentenced to death.
