Battlestar Galactica: Collaborators

Six of the New Caprica resistance fighters have formed a secret jury to privately try, judge, and execute "the worst of the worst" of the people who collaborated with the Cylons.

Elsewhere on a basestar, Baltar awaits for the Cylons to make their decision on whether he stays or goes.

Episode Notes
Survivor count: 41,435

The title sequence used from Season 2 is restored in this episode after being altered for the events on New Caprica.

Series star Grace Park does not appear in this episode.

This episode marks the death of Jammer.

Zarek has ascended as President in Baltar's absence. By the end of the episode, Roslin has resumed her presidency.

Rekha Sharma appears in this episode, but has no lines. There was a sub-plot that got cut involving Tory Foster supplying information to the Circle via Zarek. When Roslin learns of this, Rekha has what she described as a "beautiful little monolouge."

Episode Quotes
Roslin: No hard feelings?
Baltar: No. Mistakes were made. Of that, there's no question. But the past is the past. I think we can all agree we'd like to move on.
Number Six: You fools. You're being too lenient, he betrayed you. Actively sought your deaths, doesn't that matter to you? Don't you have any self-respect?
Baltar: (coughs) Wouldn't bother, they can't hear you.
Number Six: Don't make me angry, Gaius.
Adama: You wouldn't like her when she's angry.
Roslin: I've always wanted you.
Baltar: Oh, no.
Roslin: What?
Baltar: I'm dreaming, aren't I?
Roslin: Yes, you are.

Sam Anders: Did you get any sleep?
Kara: Sleep when you're dead.
Sam Anders: Nice.

Tigh: Well, isn't that nice. A man can turn his coat, collaborate with the enemy, contribute to the deaths of thousands, but the Old Man needs his phone fixed and suddenly all is forgiven.
Helo: If the Cylons find us, we're gonna need every hand we've got.
Tigh: The Cylons found us, Mr. Agathon. Your friend, Gaeta, was on the welcoming committee. (to Gaeta) Hey! Look at me! As long as you're here, maybe you can help me out. I'm missing something, I lost it in detention. Since you're so buddy-buddy with the Cylons, maybe you know where it is. How about it? Do you know where my eye is?

Tigh: Oh, I'm ready right now, I may be a little rough around the edges but I can still hold my own and you can tell that toaster lover over there that I am still the XO of this ship!
Adama: Let's go.
Tigh: Get your hands off me!
Adama: You're embarrassing yourself, Saul.
Tigh: Oh, you're the one that should be embarrassed. Letting one of Baltar's henchmen wander around like nothing's happened.
Adama: Go sleep this off. That's an order.
Tigh: Oh, yeah, just go and sleep. Forget about it all and just forget about everything. Well, I'm not forgetting. I'm not gonna forget!

Number Three: How are you, Gaius?
Baltar: I'm alive. I suppose that's something.

Lee: I have a date with a jump rope. Hey, I've dropped half a stone.
Adama: Keep jumping.

Tigh: He doesn't want to say he's guilty because Gaeta is such a good guy. Right, Chief? Everyone likes Gaeta, so let's let him off the hook. Let's just look the other way on this one. Well, a lot of good people had to pay the price for what they did - choices they made on New Caprica - like my wife. That's right. Ellen collaborated. Gave the Cylons information on the resistance and she died for it. Because that's the price of collaborating with the enemy. And I liked her a lot more than I like Gaeta.
