Private Kara Thrace continues to display a negative attitude in her training requirements. Despite good to excellent scores for both small arms and rifle drills, we request that the Private be denied all leave and be confined to quarters until the next cycle of training.

COLONIAL FORCES TRAINING COMMAND
Lieutenant Kara Thrace is charged with:
Assault on a superior officer
Drunk and disorderly conduct while on leave
Disobeying a direct order from a superior officer
Absent from duty without leave
Corporal Thrace is charged with the above offenses. It should be noted that there is a string of verbal reprimands and notices over the past seven cycles.
Lieutenant Thrace states that while she is guilty of none of the above-mentioned charges she only wishes to challenge the AWOL charge. She points out that her 'self-assigned' duty has resulted in the destruction of a Cylon vessel and that she has received a commendation from the action.
Despite this it is the opinion of this disciplinary commission that Lieutenant Thrace should be disciplined under xxx xxx xxx xxx Military Code (Section 969-0898).
It should be noted that Thrace's rank changes between corporal and lieutenant in this document. In another of the disciplinary notices read by Adama, she is also referred to as a private.

When Starbuck looks into the cockpit of her viper and begins to have a series of flashbacks, one of the images was of her mother smoking a cigarette. As seen in a closeup of the ashtray, the cigarette butt in the center of the pile is a Marlboro Ultra Light.
Kara's mother Socrata lived in an apartment in Caprica City during her retirement. Kara's apartment was located in Delphi, a different city located on Caprica.
Delphi was the location of the Museum of the Colonies, home of the Arrow of Apollo, which Kara recovered in "Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part 2," the Season One finale. The ancient Greek city on Earth was the home of the oracle of Apollo.
The name of the Greek city is usually pronounced in the United States as [del-fahy]. However, in this episode Delphi is pronounced as [del-phee], the pronunciation commonly used in most European countries.
