BSG 3.11 Jupiter

Battlestar Galactica 3.11 The Eye of Jupiter

While collecting algae on a barren planet to use as food, Tyrol discovers the Temple of Five, built by the thirteenth tribe. However, a tense standoff ensues when the Cylons arrive looking for the temple.


After a shaky start involving too much religion, things start to heat up to a good tension as the crew of Galactica head for a stand-off with the Cyclons over an imagined icon. It may not be there, but given the conventions of narrative fiction probably is. Chekov’s Jupiter is waiting.

BSG 3.10 Passage

Battlestar Galactica 3.10 The Passage (2006-12-08)

When the fleet’s food supply is contaminated, Galactica’s pilots must lead the ships through a hazardous star cluster. Meanwhile, Kat must suddenly confront a dark secret from her past.


The “physics’ of this episode make no sense at all. In space nothing is too big to go around. And how does the civilian ships protect themselves from radiation ?
The secondary story about Kat is just unnecessary and feels tacked on to fill the time-slot.
