  • Episode Description
  • A copy of the Leoben Conoy model (the Cylon that Adama killed in the mini-series) appears in the civilian fleet. Starbuck is assigned to the interrogation. Roslin had a dream about Conoy before he was captured, so she's particularly determined to uncover his plans. Meanwhile, Boomer asks Baltar to test his new Cylon detector on her. Sharon on Caprica receives new instructions that she's not comfortable with.

  • Too ambitious for one episode, but has some interesting moments none the less

    • Kara: (about Leoben) Lords of Kobol, hear my prayer. I don't know if he had a soul or not, but if he did, take care of it.

    • Leoben Conoy: It's funny, isn't it? We're all God, Starbuck. All of us. I see the love that binds all living things together. Starbuck: Love? You don't even know what the word means. Leoben Conoy: I know that God loved you more than all other living creatures and you repaid His divine love with sin, with hate, corruption, evil, so then He decided to create the Cylons. Starbuck: The gods had nothing to do with it. We created you. Us.

    • Starbuck: Sleeping? Leoben Conoy: Praying. Starbuck: I don't think the gods answer the prayers of toasters. Leoben Conoy: God answers everyone's prayers.

    • Leoben Conoy: (laughing) I was right. See, our faiths are similar but I look to one god, not to many. Starbuck: I don't give a damn what you believe. Leoben Conoy: To know the face of God is to know madness. I see the universe. I see the patterns. I see the foreshadowing that precedes every moment of every day. It's all there. I see it and you don't. And I have a surprise for you. I have something to tell you about the future. Starbuck: Is that so? Leoben Conoy: It is. But we have to see this through to the end. What is the most basic article of faith? This is not all that we are. See, the difference between you and me is, I know what that means and you don't. I know that I'm more than this body, more than this consciousness. A part of me swims in the stream but in truth, I'm standing o­n the shore. The current never takes me downstream.

    • Leoben: (to Kara) I know you. You're damaged. You were born to a woman who believes that suffering was good for the soul, so you suffered. Life is a testament to pain, injuries, accidents. Some inflicted upon others, some inflicted upon yourself. Surrounds you like a bubble but it's not... real it's just... that's just something she put into your head. It's something that you wanna believe 'cause it means that you're bad luck. Like a cancer that needs to be removed. Because you hear her voice every day and you want her to be right.

    • The name of Christina Schild's character is listed as "Playa Kohn" in this episode, as it was in the two preceding episodes. However, she states her name as "Playa Palacios" in the episode "The Hand of God."

    • In the previous episode, Galactica Boomer told Tyrol that he had to treat the Cylon Raider like a pet in order to get it to work. In this episode, she caresses the outer hull and sings to it. Grace Park revealed in an interview that she was singing a Korean lullaby, one that her mother used to sing to her when she was young. The lullaby was not originally written in the script.

    • This episode first aired in the United Kingdom on December 6, 2004, on Sky One. Sky One co-financed the first season of the show.
