The Resistance Webisodes
Written By Bradley Thompson & David Weddle
Directed By Wayne Rose

Webisode 7 Recap:
Tyrol and Tigh talk. Apparently, the Cylons arrested Jammer. Tigh is worried that Jammer is going to sell them all out. Tyrol thinks that Jammer won't give up the resistance. Tigh hopes that he's right.

(Caption: New Caprica; Detention Center )
In a cell outfitted with a table and two chairs, a hand-cuffed Jammer paces back and forth and mutters to himself that he's "frakked." He hears footsteps coming down the hallway.

A Five (Doral) comes in. He quietly apologizes for keeping "Mr. Lyman" waiting. He asks him to take a seat. Jammer asks what he's there since he hasn't done anything wrong. The Five comes around the table, opens a bottle and puts it on the table. Jammer sits down. The Five reaches over and removed the cuffs from Jammer's wrists as he asks if Jammer prefers to be called James or Jim. Jammer doesn't answer. As the Five sits down, he says that Jammer was not supposed to be cuffed and apologizes. Jammer won't even look at him. Jammer finally looks at him and wants to know why he was arrested. The Five says that Jammer isn't under arrest, but was brought there so they could talk about what happened at the temple.

Characters that appear: Tigh, Tyrol, Jammer, Five (Doral)

  • Jammer's given name is James Lyman as revealed by the Five. This is the only time that he is referred to as anything other than "Jammer." Jammer must be a nickname since as a deckhand, it wouldn't be a callsign.
  • Tigh has absolutely no faith in Jammer after the Cylons picked him up in their random sweeps.
  • Turns out that Jammer was not picked up randomly. The Cylons could know about his involvement in the resistance, or they could have picked him up because of his known close association with Tyrol and Tigh.
  • It's unknown how long after the temple massacre this webisode takes place. It has to be at least three days after since that's when webisode 6 took place.

  • Running time: ~ 1:50

Unanswered Questions:
  • How did Jammer get his nickname anyway?
  • What, if anything, do the Cylons about Jammer's involvement in the resistance?
  • What does the Five want to talk to Jammer about?
