Calmer murmuring is taking place aboard the Prez's ship as she begins another press conference. She tells the reporters that the investigation has been closed.
On the flight deck, Tyrol is working as the broadcast continues. The Prez explains that the Cylon got to the explosives through a hatch in the hanger deck. She adds that the door was left open due to negligence by Gallant, and that he's been stripped of his rank and confined to the brig. Tyrol stops working and listens, shocked.
Reporters: So the Cylon just happened to try to use that hatch when Gallant just happened to leave it open?
The Prez: Yup! Boy, coincidences are wacky, aren't they?
Reporters: And your chief investigator has been confined to her quarters, is that correct?
The Prez: Um. She has a cold. Very contagious.
Reporters: You realize that now everyone is going to come up with all kinds of elaborate conspiracy theories, because this is patently absurd.
The Prez: Nuh uh, because the civilians are just cute little bunnies!
Reporters: Wouldn't it make more sense to reform the investigation process, instead of just giving up on ever finding out what happened?
The Prez: Look over there! A Cylon!
Reporters: Eek! Where? ...Hey, where'd she go?
Adama is building an incredibly elaborate model ship. Because he has layers. Still. Tyrol enters and nervously says that he thinks that Gallant's confession was a lie: "I think that he's doing this out of a sense of misplaced loyalty to me." Adama doesn't look up from his model as he sighs, "Somewhere in this, there's truth. Care to take me to it?" Tyrol squirms and finally admits that he was with Boomer when the bomb went off. He says that the deck crew were lying protect him. Adama says, "You don't really know whether [Gallant] was on duty or not, do you?" Tyrol says that he should be in the brig instead of Gallant. Adama nods, "That's a fact." Tyrol goes on arguing: "You can't let an innocent kid --" Adama hops up, eyes ablaze, and asks, "I can't?" Oops. Adama gets in Tyrol's face and points out that Gallant lied under oath: "He either lied the first time, or he lied the second time. And it doesn't matter. He's guilty, and he'll pay the price. You -- you'll pay a different price." Tyrol's face twitches. Adama says, "You keep my planes flying. And I need my planes to fly." Tyrol exits, shell-shocked.
