Game room. Apollo calls in: "Okay, I'm through the tunnel. They can't get firing solution on me." Starbuck looks relieved, and Baltar looks amazed.
Apollo slowly turns his ship as he looks around the base. "There you are," he says, as he spots a cluster of angular buildings on the edge of the base. He mutters, "I've got you, I've got you," only a few more times. Then he turns his Viper straight up and wooshes over the buildings next to him, and flattens out and drops his bombs. They fall neatly into the target.
We cut in between Apollo zipping away from the asteroid and everyone aboard the Galactica waiting tensely. Adama turns to look over his shoulder at the base. Still waiting, and...whammo! The building explodes, and then other parts of the base start turning into fireballs. Apollo's Viper shakes, which...it seems like he's too far away. But fine. Apollo chuckles with relief, or perhaps as a tribute to his fallen comrade. But it's almost certainly the first thing.
Game room. Apollo calls in and says, "Mission accomplished." And then they do that thing where everyone whoops and applauds and cheers and screams. I don't know. It's too sports-movie. And it seems like the show is telling me, "Look how happy you should be about this triumph!" which immediately stops me from feeling very happy about their triumph. Moore thinks this part works, but I have to disagree this time. Sorry. I do like Baltar's reaction, of course. He covers his hand with his mouth and looks like he's just about to start giggling. Apollo adds, "You can tell Dr. Baltar he was right on the money. It was one hell of a fireworks show." Everyone's still whooping it up as Apollo adds that there's plenty of tylium in the canyon.
In CIC, Tigh and Adama shake hands. See, that's the kind of celebrating I like.
Game room. Gaeta congratulates Baltar and embraces him enthusiastically. Hee. Baltar repeats, "It did! It worked." Starbuck claps gleefully and then gives the Prez a big hug, much to the Prez's surprise. Starbuck releases the Prez and apologizes, but can't stop grinning. Or laughing. The Prez says, "No need to apologize, Lieutenant. Thanks to you, we have enough fuel to last us a few years." Heh. I like that they're stressing how much tylium there is, so that they don't have to do this story again in a few seasons. Although really, since it took them ten episodes to cover a month, I don't know if they really need to guarantee that they've got enough to last years. After a second, the Prez leans over and hugs Starbuck again. No, Prez, resist their touchy-feely ways!
