Season 1 Episode 13
We continue from the last episode with Colonial Raptors battling Cylon Raiders as they plummet toward the planet Kobol. Tyrol, Crashdown, and their ground crew swarm to save people from a burning Raptor. Dr. Baltar is aboard the Raptor and seems doomed until Number Six guides him out of the flames. He is saved and grateful, but already it's clear that Number Six is guiding him to something bigger. She seems to be guiding him to his destiny. On Galactica, Gaeta shares his work on the Cylon transponders with Adama and Tigh. The transponder devices identify themselves to each other. This is great news for the fleet as they can use a device to fool the Cylons and destroy their base ship. Adama tells Laura that Kara is working on a plan to use the Cylon Raider to accomplish this goal. Laura expresses concern over using the Raider as she wanted to use it herself. Adama firmly reminds her - that’s not going to happen. Laura works quickly now. She talks to Billy about her belief in the prophecies, but Billy reminds her that she's embracing a "drug-induced vision of prophecy." Laura moves on to Lee. She conveys her belief that the scriptures have led them to Kobol, and will lead them to Earth. Lee listens, but he won't budge. He will follow his father's command. Laura's next target is Kara, someone whom she knows will respond to scriptural quotation. At first, Kara thinks Laura's plan to go to Caprica is lunacy and she balks at the idea. So Laura plays rough. She informs Kara that Adama doesn't really know the way to Earth. Just ask him.
