Things are not well with the fleet. With limited medical supplies and even fewer capable doctors, people are getting sick and dying. One young man, Willie King, is the latest victim -- and unconvinced by the initial autopsy report that shows that he (like many others) died of radiation poisoning, his mother demands answers. She is a Saggitaron, and many of her people are starting to believe that they are being discriminated against when it comes to medical care of the fleet.

Helo goes to Doctor Robert on board one of the ships for some answers. He shows the man a stack of complaint forms againt him. Robert isn't surprised at the people's ungratefulness. He shows Helo how grim the situation is. But Helo is concerned when his own young daughter, a half-Cylon, is injured and comes under Robert's care.

Later Helo finds his fellow pilot "Hot Dog" is laid up in Roberts' medical bay, and not doing well. Still suspect of Robert's care, Helo eventually tries to take his friend and move him to Doc Cottle's care -- but security and an angry Doctor Roberts prevent him.

After seeing Helo's body in those first couple of scenes, I have a feeling he's a Cylon. That body is just too perfect.

Guilty. I was thinking that it would be a solution for Apollo.

Tonights episode to me was a very good episode. Before I knew it, it was over. It kept me glued to me seat. It was nice to see a Helo episode. He was sure given a crappy job managing the civilians onboard the Galactica. Bruce Davidson played a very hateful doctor and it explored some of the social aspects of the different colonies. Sagatarions diffenently seem to be modeled after like Later Day Saints in there belief of no medical treatment. They do seem like a very hated colony.

It was nice to see Zarek if only for a brief time. I wish to see more of him in future episodes.

It seems like Helo is the going on "principle" character. He always seems to be the underdog in standing up for "the right thing". He always seems like he is fighting the system for what he thinks is right. It was nice to see Adama apologize to him in the end.

It was nice of them to bring back Caprica Six's head Baltar. Now the others are noticing that she does strange things like Baltar did with Head Six. Head Baltar did mention something I thought was interesting Caprica wants to be human. Hum.

I for one thought they where going to kill off Dee. When I saw Helo freaking out just before the commercial over Dee I thought she was the next to die for sure. It seems like the writers are fraking with us.

Side note I am really liking the new views of the Galactica and the fleet. The new images are really wanting me to view the screen caps after the show. I am sure Tom will have them up tomorrow.

If Caprica and Baltar were in the same room, would Head Six and Head Baltar talk to each other????

The folks over at Dynamite Entertainment got it right with the "Zarek" Comic and Sagittaron.. but that's most likely because they get to see the early scripts for the tv eps tongue.gif

And I knew Dee wasn't going to die, that would have just seem to easy to set up Apollo/Starbuck.

That's why Adama said something about "a voice in the wilderness" when apologizing to Helo.

And was this the first episode where Helo speaks his whole name aloud?

I think it is, but I can't remember for sure. I really enjoyed this episode, but that's because I like Helo and don't necessarily need huge battles in every episode to keep my interest up. On some other boards this ep really split opinions: people either love it or hate it, but very few are indifferent.

I never really thought Dee was going to die, it would have been too neat a solution. I really hope the writers'll go somewhere with Head Baltar, not just leave Six's ramblings unnoticed in future.

It was lovely to see Gaeta relax and enjoy himself with the rest of the crew, even if it looked like he was smoking something stronger than fumarello leaf.

Gaeta was enjoying some weed! tongue.gif The same that Adama and Roslin had on New Caprica back in the flashback a few episodes ago.

And another thing I just remembered.... how come they have such good reports of the medical center in New Caprica; if they had to abandon most stuff because nobody on the planet actually knew, except the resistance, that they were being rescued....

It could be that there was a medical center, where Dr. Roberts worked, that was inside one of the ships, but that seems highly unlikely, seeing as how Dr. Cottle had a TENT to operate on a Cylon skinjob.

Good point, and a possible plothole. How come Cottle was taking care of the civilians on NC anyway? I'm surprised Adama let him transfer downside, if it meant leaving Galactica without any medical care. Sounds fishy to me.

And that's why I love him. Does anyone still think they court-marshal Helo? tongue.gif biggrin.gif I liked seeing an episode mainly about him. This wasn't my favourite episode but I did enjoy it. It was like an episode of law and order.

Didn't that doctor play a vulcan smuggler on Enterprise?

Oh no, we're on a clock, now. With, what, 7 episodes left, Roslin is totally going to have an epiphany about Caprica's strange behavior and Baltar's.

I'll up that bet. I bet Roslin's light is going to go on while she's in Baltar's presence, and she going to start to ask him something, but check herself. Head Six will have recognition of this. Roslin wil excuse herself and go to Caprica's cell, and apply a certain line of conversation on her. Head Baltar will be wary of Roslin's arrival from the moment she walks in, if not before, and try to set up Caprica's guard.

That's a long odds wager, but I'm laying my chips down. I'm definitely looking for delightful surprises with the Head characters by season's end, one way or the other.
