Uh-oh! The Colonial Fleet is running out of food! And the only way to get more is to travel through a nasty radiation field to an algae planet. (Wonder if they have fish tacos?) Last Friday's Battlestar Galactica ep, "The Passage" (written by Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Jane Espenson) also revealed that second-string character Kat had a deep dark secret, and that Baltar wants D'Anna to keep offing herself so that he can figure out if he's one of the five missing Cylon models. (Also, I'm guessing he wants her to keep sharing his bed with Caprica Six.)
Helo, a harsh grader, gave the episode an F; Athena and I thought it was more deserving of a C. I was expecting more build-up to next week's episode, seeing as that's the mid-season finale—and the last episode before we move to Sunday nights in January. Also, it seemed like the whole starving-fleet desperation thing got abandoned by the end of the episode.
