Panic grips the Cylon high command as explosions rock New Caprica and the resistance leaders rally the human population to rebel against their overlords. In orbit above the planet, Galactica tries to fight off four Cylon base ships, which threaten to tear it apart before it can complete the rescue mission. This climactic confrontation propels both humans and Cylons toward moments of personal crisis. Lee (Jamie Bamber) remains aboard Pegasus, far away from the battle, safeguarding the civilian fleet. Was his decision to preserve the human race the right one, or should he go back and die in battle beside his father? On New Caprica, Laura (Mary McDonnell) and Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) lead resistance fighters toward the civilian ships that are their only hope of escaping the planet. Tigh (Michael Hogan) agonizes over what to do with his wife (Kate Vernon), who’s been exposed as a Cylon informant. Kara (Katee Sackhoff) becomes separated from her half-Cylon child (Madeline Park), and risks her life to rescue her. Baltar (James Callis) wrestles with the possibility of fleeing the planet with his Cylon protectors, and the Cylon leaders -- D’Anna (Lucy Lawless), Caprica Six (Tricia Helfer) and Boomer (Grace Park) -- wonder if the moment has come to nuke the humans and move on. As the epic battle hurtles toward its stunning conclusion, all of them will be startled by the twists fate has in store for them.
