As Doc Cottle (Donnelly Rhodes) works to save Commander Adama’s (Edward James Olmos) life, Col. Tigh (Michael Hogan) is beginning to realize that there’s more to being a leader than giving orders. The press is clamoring for answers, everyone wants a decision now, and he feels himself being drawn to his old friend and enemy, the bottle. Worst of all, the Quorum of Twelve has arrived on the Galactica and is demanding to see President Roslin (Mary McDonnell). Tigh resists, but his wife Ellen (Kate Vernon) convinces him that the president has lost her mind and that letting her meet with the Quorum will only cement Tigh’s power. Meanwhile, Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber) leads a search and rescue mission to find the Raptor crew lost on Kobol, unaware that the Cylons have set up a missile battery in anticipation of such an effort.
