Chief and Helo in their own Pegasus brig, still in their same positions. Tyrol is lying on a bunk saying that, once they get out of there, he's going to make some changes. Specifically, he's going to let the whole Boomer thing go. Really go, he says: "I can't do it anymore. I mean -- don't get me wrong, Lieutenant -- what we did, I would do again. In a heartbeat. But I've got to let it go." Helo gets it, and Tyrol is amazed that he can identify, but Helo's like, check it out: "I'm in love with a woman I know isn't a woman. I'm having a baby that's...what? Half-machine?" Given the time and circumstance to actually consider this from Helo's POV, Tyrol's characteristically empathetic: "You really do love her, don't you?" And Helo does, and he can't let go. But if Tyrol possibly can, Helo advises, he should. Hey, as long as he doesn't hook up with Cally or Dualla, I'm cool. Oh, or Ellen Tigh. That would be wicked creepy.
Eeeee! Still not over that last mental image. Apologies. We're in the Pegasus War Room, where Starbuck is explaining the op. Tigh is sliding around those models we've seen before on the 2-D map of space. There's even a cute little Ernestine model. The reason they're doing it on the game board (the models are fine for Galactica, but you'd think Pegasus would have one of those piezoelectric desk-toy deals like in the X-Men movies because they're better off in every way) is because it's too complicated to just explain...which is what I'm now supposed to do. I'll bottom-line it for you. The Fleet, including both Battlestars, is going to...sit around and wait, and pretend to be conducting mining operations. This is in line with the Cylon strategy, which has been to follow them from useful planet to useful planet. When the Cylons finally launch Raiders, everybody will jump, except for some fake-miner civilians. (Already this plan is fuckin' great.) It will look like they're having jump trouble, and are just moseying away at sub-light speed. This pursuit will get the Raiders away from the Basestars. At that point, Galactica and Pegasus will take on a Basestar each. Which is bad-ass.
