Battlestar Fodder

Season 2 Primer: Episode 2.2 - "Valley of Darkness"

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!

Valley of Darkness

Valley of Darkness

Episode #2.2
22 July 2005

After reuniting with the fleet, the Galactica soon learns that it has been boarded by the Centurions, who are massacring their way to the ship's most vulnerable points in order to destroy it.

Captain Lee Adama, in the brig with President Roslin, persuades some marines to release them so they are not simply slaughtered in their cells. He orders Billy and Vedder to take the president to the sickbay disaster shelter, where she'll be "safe," while he heads off with a squad of marines to defend the ship's magazines.

In the CIC (you know, the Bridge), however, Col. Tigh knows from experience (somehow) what the Cylons are planning. He determines that the Centurions aren't going to blow up the ship, they're going to kill the crew by venting the ship's air and then turn its guns on the rest of the fleet. Naturally, it is Lee - whom Tigh despises for his "disloyalty" to Commander Adama during the Roslin incident - and his small squad of marines who are the only crew in position to stop the Cylon boarding party.

Meanwhile, on Cylon-occupied Caprica, Kara and Helo are still have begun their search for a way off the planet. First, they've got to get out of the city. Turns out that Kara had an apartment there (she was a painter and her papa was a musician!). She leads Helo there where they crash for a bit and chat over a cigar break. Soon, Kara fires up her old truck and they head out of the city to destinations unknown.

Light-years away on Kobol, Chief Tyrol and his crew return from their "risky" (read: somewhat silly and suicidal) mission to get medical supplies for Socinus, only to realize that the wounded man isn't going make it anyway. Number Six warns Baltar that Socinus won't be the last of the stranded Raptor crew to die - and that of all the humans, Baltar alone will live to see Earth. (Not to give him a superiority complex or anything.)
