That was a lot of alert fighters! I wouldn't be surprised if Pegasus has more alert fighters that Galactica has total fighters.

If they don't agree to live and let live and transfer everyone back it is going to play havoc with the back half of the season. Apollo is out on a Pegasus missions, Baltar in in the Pegasus brig, there are a bunch of Pegasus crew on Galactica, we don't know who else was transferred from Galactica to Pegasus... Thats more than can be straightened out even with a successful snatch and grab of the prisoners.

I did like the fact that Pegasus looked different than Galactica. It should since Galactica is an older battlestar. And they were careful to keep all of Pegasus's Vipers the new mark VIIs, as they should be.

I was surprised the Admiral didn't make any mention of what Pegasus did to overcome the Cylon attack on the networked battlestar computers. Sure, they might not have had a chance in that first encounter at the shipyard, but unless Pegasus knew to take countermeasures they should have gotten disabled by it the first time they jumped the Cylons, and by they own admission they've been doing hit and run raids on them since they escaped.

A heck of a change from the original show's episode with Pegasus.

That Capt. Taylor dude is odd....... he repeated his name twice to Starbuck.
That might have been a subtle snubbing. He introduced himself as Captain Taylor, Starbuck replied "Kyra Thrace", and Cpt Taylor restated "Captain Taylor". By repeating his military rank he is pointing out that Starbuck omitted hers, i.e. wasn't following military formalities.

Did or did not Starbuck take the Blackbird to do some recon? Just after the recon briefing, Apollo gave Starbuck a pack with recon equipment to do just that. And, there was mention in the launch bay about the Blackbird going out for a test. Or did I just dream all of that?
I remember all that. I assume that the "test flight" is just a cover story Starbuck gave the Chief as an excuse to borrow the Blackbird. After all how likely is it that just as Starbuck was going to borrow it Admiral Cane decided she needed to know just what it can do? ;)

BTW, I had no problem with them "pressing civilians into service". Unlike the BSG fleet, the military ship Pegasus was the only surviving ship in their area; if they had a few civilians on board, what else were they going to do with them? Let them lounge around while others on the same ship fought and died?
Actually, the show made it sound like Pegasus stumbled across a civilian ship after fleeing from the Cylon attack.

That said, if Pegasus can take all the civilians from that ship aboard I have no problem with Admiral Cane decided to no haul along a civilian ship. The civilians are almost certainly safer on the Pegasus than they would be on an unescorted unarmed ships. And Admiral Cane wouldn't want to get tied down escorting a single vulnerable civilian ship, when she has the resources to take the whole crew.

And I've got no problem with pulling the rescued civilians into the military and making them work to assist the running of Pegasus. It only makes sense in that situation.

(Galactica by contract couldn't being to take all the people in the fleet aboard, and so need to protect the rest of the fleet)
