Well, the Starbuck part is cool because something is actually at stake, plus there are ancient Colonial war-chants written by Bear and translated into Samoan. Samoan, of course. Togiola ina ia ola, go the voices: "Sacrifice to live." Ola ina ia oti, they pound in her ears: "Live to die." So now you know some handy Samoan phrases that should help make your stay memorable.
The Baseship nukes go hot and Lee and Dee talk about how if the Fleet starts their FTL drives spinning the Cylons will just blow everybody to hell, but with a lot more words and bad-ass talk around the subject that there is nothing actually happening here, because that's how it works when you give the best stories ("Maelstrom," "Scar," "Downloaded," "Rapture") to the least subtle writers, and do you ever wonder why it takes twice the men to do half the work and just blab it all onto the page without any moments to breathe at all, or at least why it takes twice the men to make a single twelve-year-old boy, because that's what this is like, talking to a particularly awesome military-minded child, which is why I don't watch Stargate, and why I hate science fiction anyway, so like I'm even qualified to have an opinion.
So Lee moves everybody around like it's musical electric chairs and so now Tigh's in the tube and the boys are outside, and meanwhile Three is looking all sad at Gaius for asking her if she for-real honestly thinks "God brought you back from the darkness for this," and her smile falls: "Maybe He brought you back for a different purpose. To end this peacefully," Gaius asks. And Three -- because she wasn't there for the Dance, because she doesn't know about the Shape of Things How They Are, how she's retro-psycho-obsolete in her own way, says the thing that somebody has to say between now and the big reconciliation, which is that: "They will never forgive us for what we did to the Twelve Colonies, never." And that is the narrative of lonely Three, because nobody told her anything better. "Proceed." The missiles do ... missile things, and on Galactica the airlock door begins to close.
