|One of the things I find so unbelievable about all of this is the fact that Adama did his job. They found Earth. By a twist of cruel fate it turns out the earth was nuked and is uninhabitable. As we saw with D this definately has devistating consequences but this was in no way Adama's fault. The only option they have left, besides completely giving up, is to pool their resouces with the Rebel Cylons in order to survive. They have better technology. It's a simple as that. Gaeta has basically become a Racist(as we would term him) and identifies the Cylons as the target of his hate. I feel he's dead wrong for going against Adama. Survival is our most basic instinct and I find it awkward that so many would fight their instincts based on their principles. Not only that, but now Zarek and Gaeta have forced Adama's hand to make probably the most difficult decision of his career. Now he has to figure out what to do with the insurgents trying to overthrow the current government. Gaeta not only spat in the face of everything he swore to protect, but also sentenced many others to an uncertain fate, most probably death. All of that blood will be on Zarek and Gaeta's hands. Not something I would want on my conscience.|
He did, but I don't think it matters to Gaeta anymore, I think he is way beyond looking at things objectively at this point and what it all boils down to is that the 'Cylons' caused this whole chain of events and if it wasn't for them, they would have never needed to look for a new home nor suffered the hardships along the way. In his mind everything that has happened (even within the fleet) over the last 4 seasons is the fault of them in one way or another, and seeing Adama chatting up Colonel Tigh like nothing ever happened makes him a "Collaborator" at this point.
