Greetings From Earth, Part One
When Apollo and Starbuck intercept a primitive ship floating through space, the young warriors discover that its inhabitants, who are in suspended animation, represent a direct link to Earth. In "Greetings from Earth," the possibility of earthling passengers aboard a captured alien spacecraft spreads excitement throughout the Battlestar Galactica. While the humans, a family of six, lie in a frozen state aboard the captured ship, the battlestar’s scientists struggle to understand the aliens' baffling cryogenic equipment. When one of the captives regains consciousness and it becomes evident that the Galactica atmosphere is incompatible and eventually fatal to the aliens, Commander Adama realizes that he must return them to the original orbit. Aware that the Council of Twelve leaders and the entire population of the fleet are becoming riotous in their demand for information of the mysterious passengers, Adama commissions Apollo, Starbuck and Cassiopea to accompany the travelers to t heir final destination, the planet of Paradeen.
