"It's a Godsdamn uprising!" Saul yells as they head into CIC. Helo suggests, with all respect, that it's not there yet. "Ten of our ships refuse a direct order from the flagship," Saul screeches, "Another twelve won't even respond to our hails!" Felix unhelpfully points out that they're just exercising their right to refuse Cylon invasion, but that's not even the problem, so I'm not sure why he's even talking: Saul's talking about twenty-two ships openly dissing comms from Galactica. I think I'm actually with Saul on this one. Even if he's ordering them to take the jump drives, they could at least offer a simple "No thank you." Bill makes the call that jump drive upgrades are a military necessity, and therefore will go forward at the government's discretion. I also agree with this, because come on: if half the ships have FTL 3.0, and the other half don't...
Actually, you know what? Fuck it. Let them have this one. See you on the awesome planet we're going to find, hundreds of years from now, when you finally get there. I no longer sympathize with these ships that are taking a stand, no matter how justified you might think their superstition might be. This is just dumb. Bill's right, they should not have the option to do this. Lee should have pointed this out: "Okay, Cantrell, hope you enjoy living here in the middle of space forever. Seacrest out." Fix their wagon right quick.
So Felix pisses and moans about how Bill just superceded the Quorum's decision -- adding a wonderfully snotty "sir" with a glance at Tigh -- and Bill's like, "Actually, yes. This is my call. I was trying to be nice, but in fact I am in charge of the entire universe. You cool with that?" Felix Gaeta, you do not have a leg to stand on.
Oh, yes I did. Recently-dumped Hoshi with his new hot hair catches an emergency hail from the Marines on the tylium refinery Hitei Kan. I was all relieved that it wasn't Daru Mozu, of course, because of Danny Noon, until I remembered that one was blown up awhile back, and now there's only one tylium refinery, and he was always on Hitei Kan anyway. Daru Mozu was the one DEMAND PEACE frakked with. I hope he's hiding under a bed somewhere. But to be honest, I'm more freaked out about me, because when did I become this person?
("Hitei Kan? Oh, shit. But wait, what about Daru Mozu?" WTF are you talking about, Jacob. "Um, there are two tylium ships in the Fleet? Daru Mozu from the episode 'Epiphanies' and Hitei Kan from 'Dirty Hands'? Are you even a fan of this program? Do you even own a television set? Best. Tylium Refinery. Ever.")
