As the process of refining the fleet's tyluim becomes difficult, the pressure is put on the workers to keep maintenance, while they in turn simply want better working conditions. A book written by Baltar and smuggled out into the fleet helps to tighten this tension in the "knuckle draggers" who feel they are being treated like a lower class.

Adama: (to Roslin) Well, if the quarters become cramped, you're always welcome in one of my beds. (off her look) In a manner of speaking.

Baltar: Lack of imagination.
Tyrol: Or maybe that your little tale is manure.

Tyrol: It's called a general strike, sir.
Adama: It's a mutiny. And do you know what we do with mutineers? We shoot them, Chief.
