  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (3)

    • Adama: You've lost your way, Sergeant. You've lost sight of the purpose of the law--to protect its citizens, not persecute them. Whatever we are, whatever is left of us, we're better than that.

    • Number Six: Don't make me angry, Gaius. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

    • (before the tribunal) Sgt. Hadrian: Why did you allow the relationship [between Sharon and Chief Tyrol] to continue, knowing it was against regulations? Adama: I'm a soft touch.

    Notes (3)

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

    • Biski Gugushe was credited with playing a reporter named "Eick" in the episode. In later episodes, he played a television journalist named Sekou Hamilton. It's unclear whether these are the same character. The name "Eick" is a reference to David Eick, who serves as executive producer of the series, along with Ronald D. Moore.

    • This episode first aired in the United Kingdom on November 22, 2004, on Sky One. Sky One co-financed the first season of the show.

    Trivia (1)

    • One of the buildings on Caprica has a very large and very obvious Scotiabank symbol on it. As it was a white building, it should have been easy to remove.

    Allusions (1)

    • Number Six: Don't make me angry, Gaius. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry. This is an allusion to the 70s television series The Incredible Hulk (1978). David Banner uttered a similar version of these lines in many episodes, including the series pilot.
