    What is it about military ordinance in this universe that makes it so unstable? lol, and conducive to the plot(whatever that was that went off in the Miniseries to separate Adama with the cylon from the rest of the crew and the drone in this episode). I guess it only really bugged me because it didn't even seem necessary, flight school is something that they would need pretty badly even without losing 13 pilots. I'll chalk it up to God playing favorites.

    The scene between Starbuck and Cdr. Adama, when she reveals she passed Zach even though he failed, was well acted on both their parts. Olmos' physical acting was especially impressive, how's he's almost quivering with rage and keeps his lips pursed together as if he's trying to prevent himself from verbally berating her or worse. Definitely my favorite scene of the episode.

    The scenes in the Vipers were good, I love the hollow sound their guns make, sort of what you might expect in the vacuum of space.
