Boomer continues to bleed and Tigh continues to bitch and moan about how they're all going to die.
Out in space, Hotdog and Apollo and Duck get ready to fight, noting how there are a billion Raiders there, about to kill them. Tigh screams on and on about how the continued attack means it was all a setup. Boomer's eyes roll back in her head, but not from sarcasm: it's because she's a freaky robot chick doing freaky computer stuff. Adama marshals a gun from a nearby Marine and holds it to her head, threatening, "If they're coming for you, they're gonna be very disappointed." Which is fine and I get it, although that would be quite a maneuver, getting in and out with Boomer in tow while this intense space battle massacre is going on, but she's eliminated the immediate threat to her personally, as far as Galactica going all HAL on them. Tigh, of course, screams "Do it!" because he is useless. Everybody stares and nobody moves. Tigh whines, "What are you waiting for?" "This," says Boomer, and it's very impressive, this moment, in a very old-school Claremont ass-kicking kind of way: all the Galactica systems come back online, Boomer collapses, and outside, all the Raiders start drifting and crashing into each other. Tigh: "What the hell?" (9) Gaeta reads off his panel that they've just transmitted a signal, and Apollo phones in that the Raiders are all going wacky. Tigh: "What the hell?" (That's 10. Pull your head out of your ass and proceed directly to outer space without a helmet.)
Adama knows, though. They've just sent the Raider fleet a little virus of their own. Tigh gives CAG Apollo the go-ahead to start blowing the entire jump to hell, which is nice as a catharsis for the pilots but kind of sucky as far as utility: at worst, they're scrap metal, plus the fact that once you scoop out their brains (which, let's talk about that a second), they're basically just ships like any other fighter-class ship, which we're at this point building by hand.
Starbuck and Apollo are very happy in their blue fighter light. All the pilots say that silly Top Gun "Wooooo-hoo-hoo!" and "Got this toaster padlocked!" stuff that pilots are compelled to say when shit blows up. Apollo says something like "This...this is payback." For what? Coming to kill you today? Well, I guess he's got a personal beef right now due to the strangling almost to death earlier today, so I'll allow it. Also there's destroying his whole civilization.
