One of the best in the series

This is easily one of the best episodes of the series. Starbuck and Boomer are ambushed while on patrol and Starbuck is forced to make a crash landing on a planet occupied by the Cylons. It turns out that a human family still lives there and is fighting a guerilla war against the Cyclons. He aids them in achieving a victory, but that is not the high point of the story.

What has always fascinated me about this episode is the interaction between the human traitor Baltar and the two Cylon leaders, Lucifer and Spectre. The Cylons in this episode are portrayed as possessing traits clearly unbecoming machines. Spectre, the Cylon commander on the planet, submits false progress reports and Lucifer, the second-in-command to Baltar, is clearly jealous of that supposed success. One thing that the series lacked was a sense of the development of the Cylon characters, so that we can learn more about their origins and society. This episode at least begins that process. There is also enough shoot-em-up action to satisfy those with an interest in that direction.

I still enjoy this episode, having watched it many times. For years, it was the only one that I owned.
