    As this episode begins we see Apollo floating in beautiful blue water than, as he looks up at the sun he snaps back to reality and he is drifting in space in the middle of a battle, the action then returns to forty-eight hours before and we learn how he got there. As the battle to destroy the Cylon's resurrection ship approaches both Adama and Cain are plotting to kill the other like to people unknowingly entering a duel; who will strike first or will one of them back down leaving the way open for the other to kill them? This leads to a fantastic scene where Admiral Cain talks to Starbuck about knowing what to do even when it is difficult and not flinching at the moment one has to strike not knowing that she is effectively steadying Starbuck's hand as she approaches the time where she will carry out Adama's order to kill Cain. Adama meanwhile is talking to Sharon and making a decision of his own.

    This episode was one of the best so far and proved to be an excellent conclusion to the three episodes featuring Michelle Forbes as Admiral Cain; she was excellent in the role. One would have expected this episode to conclude with the destruction of the resurrection ship or the confrontation between the commanders of the two battlestars but it didn't leaving the way open to an interesting conclusion that leaves things open for interesting stories later on featuring the Cylon Number Six that had been held in Pegasus's brig. As always the acting was great, as was the music that managed to give me goosebumps in some scenes.

    This was outstanding. And the conclusion is by far the most perfect end to an ep yet. And what a battle. Spoilers follow ***

    With Admiral Cain plotting against Adama and Adama plotting against Cain the tensions is thick as the power play for control of the fleet continues. Their differences are set aside until they can strike the Cylon Resurrection Ship - a very cool ship that looks to me like a centipede in space. The battle rages as Apollo floats in space with a leak in his space suit running out of air. The fleet prevails and Apollo is saved. Just when you think the assassinations are about to begin Adama and (surpisingly) Cain back of from the kill order. But we still get a satisfying conclusion as a liberated Number 6 seeks revenge and kills Cain. Cain to Six "Frack you" Six to Cain "Your not my type" Gunshot.

    This remarkable series passed me by on this sublunary sphere. It did not descend to the terrestrial regions where lesser work crawls.

    So I bought the boxed DVDs to see what all this distant thunder was about ...

    Now I know: Sky's little satellite had picked up the distant waves of a War in Heaven.

    Not an ordinary science-fiction shoot-em-up, you understand, but a metaphysical battle for the soul of man, set afar-off in those remote regions where this fragile organic life somehow exploded out of the dust of unstable minerals.

    Taking us on a visionary journey through the mind-bending creative forces first discovered and harnessed by Cosmonaut Tarkovsky and Astronaut Kubrick, we are brought to appreciate, by the time we have been exposed to the double episode "Resurrection Ship," that "Battlestar Galactica" is one of the greatest epics realised since Milton's "Paradise Lost" burst upon an astonished world.

    I do not care if idle pedestrians jeer at me in the street for a zany...

    Because I have seen a manifestation of something marvellous, a creation touched by genius, and that mad stare you see in my eye is Dr. Gaius Baltasar on a good day, perfectly in his right mind and filled with love, and wonder.

    To speak more scientifically, my 'Peak in Darien' is the soul of the Hubble Space Telescope - or it is the wandering spirit of Voyager - and it is a sensation of being filled with the wildest surmise that ever came out of that hissing, scratching box in the corner where the electric tiger was penned in an ocean of white noise.

    I sit in the electric snow of stars as Lee Adama falls in love with easeful Death, and I feel the fatal, ecstatic embrace of Heaven ...

    This Truth will be known in years to come.

    Action. Nice CGI. Some nice character moments. But all spoilt (to some extent) by backing off the promised death... While season 1 is quite good and season 2.0 (episodes 1 - 10) was not that bad.... I highly... (extremely, as much as I can) recommend you to stop watching after this episode.. that is.. you might enjoy Razor.. but that's about it. Every viewer in this galaxy regrets watching past RS II.

    As an episode, "Resurrection Ship" is generally good (with a few plot / characterization holes). At this point, however, a shift in characterization is clear. Last season, most of the characters were generally sympathetic, though they could at times make enormous mistakes. This season, some of the characters seem to have abandoned sense altogether and become much less likable.

    Thrace, for inexplicable reasons, speaks up for the sociopath Cain (albeit, at her funeral) in favour of Adama. Her newfound dislike of Adama is confusing: Whatever Adama does wrong, Cain does as well, and she adds torture and mistreatment of the crew to her list. How can Thrace be so blinded by Cain's interest in returning to Caprica not to see that the woman is dangerous and that her command would not be a good experience for Thrace herself?

    Apollo, despite all this private self-doubt the show tries to shove in there, acts as if he's morally superior to anybody else on the show, including Roslin herself when she makes a decision he doesn't approve of. I think what bothers me isn't that he disagrees with people's decisions but that he never seems to weigh the options and admit that, hey, other people might have good points too! He's the show's Ned Stark, but more annoying and less likable.

    And what the heck is Dee doing listening at his door? Dee, Apollo is not going to be good for you. Stop creeping at his door like a stalker!

    Absolutely nobody is able to work through or even express their differences. Besides Helo, my favourite characters are all Cylons: They seem to be the only ones capable of taking action on their decisions and thinking through things in a rational, moral manner. Perhaps that's the goal of the show, but then it would be nice to see Sharon more frequently.

    Yes, I know that even in this episode (and others) BSG does not qualify as a soap opera. Yes, there are still many fascinating characters and themes. I just feel at this point as though needless character drama is obscuring some of the more interesting themes that the show started out with. What I loved about the first season was the effort to secure the survival of the human race, which is interesting as a common motif in Mormon science fiction (Orson Scott Card's novels deal with this motif as well). I also felt like the Cylon-human interaction (between Six and Baltar, and between Sharon and Helo) was interesting. Now, Sharon spends all her time in the brig, and even the shows that feature encounters with the Cylons (such as this one) drag in Apollo's daddy issues and his impotent relationship with Starbuck.

    So, enjoy the show, but it's starting to lose its moorings.
