Epsiode Synopsis

In a continuation from the previous episode, Commander William Adama and Col. Saul Tigh have been recaptured. Saul it taken to the brig with the others and Commander Adama is taken away to face a tribunal.

When Tom Zarek doesn't get his way with the Quorum of the Twelve leaders, he orders soldiers to gun them down which they do without hesitation.

Romo Lumpkin, the lawyer who had successfully defended Dr. Gauis Baltar earlier is press-ganged into representing William Adama in a tribunal. The prosecution is to be represented by Lt. Felix Gaeta with the decision being made by Tom Zarek. William doesn't accept that the tribunal has any legal weight and refuses to entertainment the court. Its no surprise that Tom Zarek finds him guilty and orders his death by firing squad.

Capt. Lee Adama ( Apollo ) and Lt. Kara Thrace ( Starbuck ) rescue their arrested colleague but on their way out, Samuel Anders is fatally wounded and dies in Kara's arms.

Commander Adama is tied up by an airlock with a firing squad aiming their guns at the Commander. The soldiers are unsure what they are doing. However, no shots are fired and Lee has come to his father's aid and gets them to stand down. William is released. He then leads a popular march of people to the bridge to take back the ship.
