At a press conference, the President Laura Roslin starts hallucinating that there are snakes all over the place and in the end walks away leaving reporters with questions unanswered.
A Colonial Viper shuttle on a search mission through an asteroid belt discover a trillium source. Their jubilation turns to disappointment as the area is heavily guarded by the Cylons. When the Commander William Adama learns of the discovery, he orders that the fleet attack the Cylon base to get at the tylium as they expect the Cylons are not expecting a human assault.
The Admiral, Col. Saul Tigh, Capt. Lee Adama ( Apollo ) and Lt. Kara Thrace ( Starbuck ) come up with a plan to take out the Cylon base and get the ore out. Once they have come up with a plan, they tell the President the plan who grudgingly agrees. The Admiral, Colonel Tigh and Starbuck consult Dr. Gaius Baltar on the radioactive fall out. Whilst talking to the military, he falls into a day dream where he consults the Number Six in his dreams. The Number Six in the dream gives him a massage.
Lt. Helo and Lt. Sharon Valerii ( Boomer ) on Caprica take shelter in a stable out of the rain. There they have a meal. Their moment of peace is disturbed when Cylon troops encroach on their location and make a run for it whilst its still raining.
Whilst the Vipers engage the Cylon base, Admiral Adama, Starbuck and the President are listening to their Vipers conversations. They soon discover that the Cylons have ignored the Vipers and head for the Galactica. It becomes clear that the Galactica becoming a target was part of the plan as a second group of Vipers leave their hiding place and attack the Cylon base. During the attack on the base, Apollo flies through a tunnel to the main processing area, a scene somewhat reminiscent of Lando Calrissian in the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars VI - Return of the Jedi.
