Captions read, "Kimba Huta, Cold Storage," as Zarek joins the party. The Prez and Elosha are bundled up by some frost-covered windows. They should try clapping to warm up their hands. And to weird Zarek out. As Apollo wanders out from the aisles of supplies, Zarek says that the Quorum is still deliberating whether to support the Prez openly. The Prez says that she needs to appeal to the people directly. Zarek replies, "Make a strong enough argument, and the Astral Queen will be first ship in line." Apollo chuckles that the Astral Queen does whatever Zarek says. Zarek ignores that and says he has other news: "Zeus has returned to Olympus." Does Zarek think that he's a spy and has to speak in code all the time? Apollo stares at Zarek, who finally translates, "Adama's back in command." Apollo mumbles, "My father is, uh, back?" One side of his mouth twitches up in a smile for a second, which is cute. It fades immediately, as Apollo realizes that he's so grounded. In the background, the Prez happily calls Adama "a tough old bird." Zarek declares that they need something "heartfelt and personal that will galvanize the people." To do what, exactly? Maybe they should start with what they want to achieve, and then figure out how to get it done. I have so much more sympathy for revolutionaries with clear objectives. Or I would, if there were any. After a moment, Zarek suggests, "Like a son denouncing his father." Apollo stares back like, "Sure, but where are we going to find -- hey, wait a second!"
Close-up on Apollo's mouth as he introduces himself and explains that he felt unable to support his father in usurping the Prez. Zarek, Elosha, and the Prez watch as Apollo talks into a microphone. Apollo, I know you mean well and everything, but this is such a terrible idea. Oh dear. Apollo says, "I love my father, I respect him, but in this, he is wrong. He must be opposed." Then there's a close-up of a cassette recorder, as he says, "I call upon all free-thinking people in the fleet, I--" Apollo stops the recorder, ejects the tape, and takes it out while Zarek looks vexed. Thank heavens. Apollo calmly says that he can't do this, and apologizes. Good boy. Have a cookie. After everyone's done giving him a good stare, the Prez says, "I'm playing the religious card." Her hair looks better now. Being an outlaw suits her. The Prez says that she knows what to do, and Zarek pissily hands her another tape like, "That's an original Grateful Dead bootleg you're recording over, lady. Make it good." The Prez fumbles with the recorder for a moment and then snaps, "How does this thing work?" as we cut away. Heh.
