Battlestar Fodder

Season 2 Primer: Episode 2.3 - "Fragged"

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 #2.3
29 July 2005

Now that they're all reunited and stuff, the doctor can attend to Commander Adama. While Adama fights for his life, Col. Tigh is quickly failing as leader of the fleet. With the press hounding him for answers about the President's imprisonment and the future of the fleet, Tigh turns to his bestest bud - the bottle.

To make matters worse, The Quorum of Twelve (essentially Congress) has arrived on Galactica and demands time with President Roslin. Tigh's conniving wife Ellen (nobody likes her) convinces him that it will be a good political move for him to let them see Roslin because she's lost her mind.

(Cue dramatic music) Roslin's erratic behavior was only a symptom of withdrawal from her cancer treatment drug. She was able to convince one of the guards, a religious man who believes in the healing power of the natural herb, to obtain a dose for her. When the Quorum shows up, she has regained her wits and condemns Adama's action and announces she is the dying leader prophesied in the ancient Scrolls who is to lead the people to Earth. With his plan backfiring, Tigh is furious and orders the Quorum off the ship.

Meanwhile, Captain Lee Adama leads a search-and-rescue mission to find the Raptor crew lost on Kobol, unaware that the Cylons have set up a missile battery in anticipation of such an effort. It is up to the wounded and hurting survivors on the ground to knock out the Cylon artillery before Galactica's rescue team flies into the trap.

Becoming increasingly aware of Crashown's (the ranking officer among them) shortcomings, Chief Tyrol has serious misgivings about the plan for these non-combat personnel types to destroy the missile battery of these serious killing machines.

Fueled by his hallucinations of Number Six, Vice President Baltar is going more paranoid by the moment and believes that someone in their group will betray the others on Kobol. After some bloodshed, the battery is destroyed, Lee's group finds the survivors and Tyrol fudges a bit to tout Baltar as a brave hero.
