As Admiral Adama reads through Kara's personnel record, the first disciplinary notice reads:
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.
