So, in flashback, we see all this: Bulldog edges past the Armistice line, and although his ship is called a, or the, "Stealthstar," he registers on dradis. Which is stupid. Two clicks past the line: "Negative dradis contacts. There's nothing here, sir. Which is fine by me. Company wants to pay me for a joy ride, they came to the right driver. Helluva moon." Immediately, an "unknown vessel" jumps in on Bulldog, and we hear it again: "Krypter krypter krypter, I've got damage to the port engine. Bird is down. Repeat: bird is down. Request rescue. Krypter krypter krypter. This is Bulldog." The vessel jumps away again, and Bulldog is calling krypter, and then two more Raiders jump in. Adama is frozen, overwhelmed, scared, staring at his Captain's hands, not talking, not moving. Tigh whispers his usual: "Don't do this. Think about it, Bill. You don't want to do this..." but Adama is galvanized: "Do you want his ship discovered? Do you know where we are? Do you have any idea what this could mean?" ["I'm saying!" -- Wing Chun] Twenty seconds before the bogies hit. Adama finally pulls a phone to Weapons: "Launch ship-to-ship missile. Now." And they do. And maybe it hits -- I think it hits -- and Bulldog ejects.
