Episode Summary

Captain Marcus is angered by Admiral Winfield's decision to not attempt to liberate Earth, which he perceives as cowardice. After sending Able Squad (minus Weston and Takagi) on a secret mission to Mars as a way of getting rid of Marsh and other Winfield supporters, Marcus mutinies with the support of at least one other captain and most of the Resolute's security forces. The mutiny succeeds, with Winfield and his supporters (including Weston and Takagi) being locked in the brig. Able Squad reaches Mars, and the episode ends with them fleeing pursuing Neo e-frames.moreless

      • (Bronski destroys enemy Y-wing)
        Bronski: Yeeehaw! Nothing like making sure.

      • Capt. Furlong: Sir! If we don't strike now, we may never be able to liberate Earth!
        Adm. Winfield: Gentlemen, if we do attack now only half ready, we will definitely never be able to liberate Earth. There won't be any of us or our ships left to liberate anything.
        Capt. Marcus: But Admiral, as you know...
        Adm. Winfield: I know the only thing standing between Phaeton and his total subjugation of the human race is THIS fleet! Until we get it back to full strength, I'm not committing to any large scale engagement. Is that clear Captain?

      • Capt. Furlong: C'mon Marcus, you know as well as I do that Winfield doesn't have the stomach for a fight.
        Capt. Marcus: No Captain Furlong! I know that Admiral Winfield is spending more time refitting the fleet than I find absolutely necessary. Remember, you can get away with questioning a superiors decisions but never his courage.

      • (Admiral Winfield and the mutinous Captain Furlong)
        Winfield: This better not be what it looks like, Captain!
        Furlong: It's exactly what it looks like.

      • Alec: Ah, Maggie, gentle lies the hand of woman.
        Maggie: Not if you keep feeding me lines like that.
        Alec: But I say that to all the officers!
