The entire episode was an excellent comment about command. The Commander is an excellent chief engineer because he is totally competent in that area, but not suited to command a Battlestar or at least needs more time and training to command. Obviously Adama didn't put him in command for the sack of putting him in command. I think Starbuck's assessment of him was unjust. From her perspective the entire Pegasus crew is paranoid because of this negative hardcore bullcrap left from Admiral Cain's legacy. They refuse to discuss matters with personnel outside of the Pegasus crew, which means anyone from Galactica is out of the loop. This is inherently dangerous thinking, especially in the military when you need to trust your fellow military personnel otherwise it breeds dissension amongst the ranks. It was very interesting, Kara was proving that some of her methods were undesirable as a Captain, Lee proved why he was an excellent CAG but not an excellent commanding officer and the Commander proved that he knew the engine room like the back of his hand and the engineers were lost without him. Ultimately, Lee comes through in the end and brings Pegasus back, Starbuck proves that she is still the top gun in the fleet and is still needed and the Commander sacrifices himself to save the Pegasus. The episode proves that we are all gifted in certain areas. We have our strengths and our weaknesses. It is just a matter of how you deal with those strengths and weaknesses that dictates whether or not if you are a good commanding officer or not. If everyone could lead they would, but not everyone can, and not everyone should, it is something that is a matter of experience, drive and luck.

It was also deeply ironic. He put the ship in danger and then he saves it by sacrificing himself.
