In Adama's quarters, Biers shows Adama the footage of Tigh shoving her. Adama looks pained and offers an apology for Tigh's behavior. Biers snits, "Seems like a lot of people have been apologizing for him over the years." Really? A lot of people? Not just Adama? See, that also might be interesting to hear about, but we won't. Biers asks why Tigh wasn't charged for what happened on the Gideon. Adama says that in their situation, he's not going to "sacrifice the few people [they] have left on the altar of public outrage." Biers asks, "So four civilians are dead, and Tigh and the shooters take a walk?" Adama says that nobody takes a walk: "They all gotta live with it." Except the dead people, of course. Unless there are zombies.
A Viper heads for the Galactica. Inside the landing deck, we pan over to see the little observation cubicle. Cool. And inside the cubicle is Kelly. Hi, Kelly. Biers is there too. He clears Kat to land, only with more words. In her Viper, Kat is sweaty and muttering to herself. She probably picked that up from Apollo. Kelly tells Kat that she's "dropping below glide slope." The Viper swings widely from side to side, and Kat whines that the controls are messed up. Kelly waves Kat off, and Kat zooms over the Galactica.
Starbuck marches in complaining that Kat's been waved off three times now.
Cut to an octacam interview with Kat. She's clearly unwell, because her hair's all frizzy. Her name turns out to be Louanne Katraine. She talks about working under pressure and blah blah "one mistake, we're a smear in the cockpit."
Back at the landing deck, Starbuck gets on the wireless to try to talk Kat through the landing. A panicky Kat repeats that her controls are messed up. Then she breathes heavily for a while, until Kelly announces that she's coming in too low and tries to wave her off again. Starbuck insists that Kat's going to land, and snaps, "Full throttle, now!" The drumbeats of an impending explosion are cued up.
Octacam interview. Kat gibbers happily that coming back from a successful run is better than sex.
In her Viper, Kat's in full freak-out. The Viper soars into the landing bay and crunches down heavily onto the deck, bouncing and skidding as Kat is tossed around inside. Sirens go off as Starbuck announces, "She missed the trap," and hurries out. Kelly calls for medics and damage control Bell and Biers hurry out after Starbuck. The Viper continues sliding along the deck with a metallic screech.
