With Commander Adama lying at death’s door and the president under arrest, Colonel Tigh takes command just as another Cylon basestar arrives above Kobol. A Cylon computer virus penetrates the Galactica’s main computer just as a squad of centurions also boards the wounded ship for battle. The Quorum of Twelve demands to see the jailed President Roslin; Apollo leads a search-and-rescue mission to retrieve the stranded raptor crew on Kobol. Colonel Tigh declares martial law in the fleet; on Cylon-occupied Caprica, Starbuck and Helo encounter an armed human resistance—a former sports team called the Caprica Buccaneers. The Buccaneers make a horrifying discovery on Caprica; the renegade President Roslin plays the religious card and makes a break from the fleet with her devoted followers.
