Battlestar Fodder

Season 2 Primer: Episode 2.1 - "Scattered"

by Shannon Nolley, Sci-Fi Fodder Editor

To gear up for the January 6th resumption of Season 2, here's a cheat-sheet of the major plot points from the season so far. SO MUCH has occurred, it's impossible to include everything in a concise way. Of course, it's also hard not to go on and on about the show so I TRIED to be as brief as possible. If you think a major point has been left out, feel free to post it below!

Episode #2.1
15 July 2005

Here we are back with the fleet. Commander Adama is fighting for his life after being shot by the Cylon humanoid infiltrator Sharon (who had been a Colonial Warrior). President Roslin is stuck in Galactica's brig after losing her power struggle with Adama. Lee has also been sent to the brig for siding with the President when marines were instructed to take her into custody. The Raptor crew is still on the surface of Kobol after having crash landed. Colonel Tigh, a raging alcoholic, is now the sole leader of the fleet. YAY!

Things go even more wrong in this episode. An incoming Cylon attack force leads to an emergency jump by all the ships, away from Kobol. However, Galactica's coordinates were not in sync with the other ships and now they're all by their lonesomes - separated from the rest of the fleet and from the medical help needed to save Adama's life.

To reconnect with the other ships, Galactica must jump back into danger over Kobol and network its computers to calculate where the other ships have gone, a highly risky move that will make the ship vulnerable to attack from both the Cylon fighters and their crippling computer viruses.

Meanwhile, on the surface of Kobol, Chief Tyrol and the rest of the downed Raptor crew fight for their lives against an unseen enemy while Vice President Baltar finds comfort with in his Number Six hallucinations, which include a Cylon-Human baby.

Light-years away, on Caprica (the Galactica's home world now overrun by Cylons), Kara (Starbuck) must find some way to bring the Arrow of Apollo back to the fleet. Helo (who had stayed behind during the evacuation to make room for folks like Baltar) shows up to help Kara but misses some key ass-kicking moments when Number Six decides to make the Arrow retrieval difficult. Kara wins.

After the fight, the Cylon copy of Sharon that has been on Caprica - and impregnated by Helo - makes a quick appearance but Kara, who knows she's a Cylon, tries to kill her. Helo, of course, defends her and tells Kara of the precious bun in the oven. Sharon exits stage left and makes off with Kara's captured Cylon Raider, leaving Helo and Kara to find their own way off the planet and back to the fleet.

Back on Galactica, the ship successfully reunites with the fleet but sustained damage during the inevitable Cylon attack, including loss of power from a Cylon computer virus when the computers were networked. The episode ends with a Cylon ship crashing into the Galactica and the unmistakable red eye of several surviving Cylon Centurions flashing in darkness.
