Storyline

With Hera now likely in the hands of John Cavil, Admiral Adama sends out search teams to locate The Colony, the Cylon home world if you will, that Ellen Tigh says is the only place she imagines she could be. Adama reluctantly comes to the conclusion that the Galactica has reached the end of its days. He orders all repair activities halted and decides to strip the ship and share everything that is salvageable with the rest of the fleet. Starbuck meanwhile shares with Gaius Baltar what she found on the uninhabitable Earth. He subsequently - and quite publicly - proclaims her to be an angel. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the scene where Boomer arrives at The Colony and is landing her Raptor, there are a circle of Cylon Raiders, some lifting off for departure, some parked. Amongst these, are several very similar to the ships the Cylons used in the original series, but, there are two Raiders of an unfamiliar design. While being similar to the standard Cylon Raider (not the Cylon 'Heavy' Raider), these Raiders have much longer Wings which project straight ahead, and the centre section, which contains the Cylon pilot is also elongated and projects forward separate from the ship itself. This is their only appearance in the series. The centre section is separate, still unconnected - but, rather than the small, narrow space which separates the wings from the central pod of a standard Cylon Raider , there is a deep, long trough, which runs parallel to that of the wings.
