Episode 15: Dirty Hands; February 25, 2007
2/25/07: Episode Summary Including Extended Bonus Scene Now Available
2/24/07: On Galactica, Roslin and Adama speak to the captain of the fuel processing ship. He complains that he's had men working eighteen hours a day for six months. Adama counters that having enough fuel for one or two jumps is too close a margin with the threat of the Cylons showing up. Roslin asks him to get the gas flowing and then she promises that they'll talk. He counters that as long as the fuel flows, his phone calls aren't returned. However, as soon as there's an interruption, he's in front of both the President and the Admiral. He suggests that maybe he should start having more "glitches." Roslin wants to know if he's making a threat. He says it's like the book says, "if you hear the people, you'll never have to fear the people." Roslin asks if he said, "the book." He nods. Roslin immediately orders his arrest for extortion and interrupting vital services in a time of war. The captain is stunned, but led away by the guards. Roslin then comments that it's Baltar's book. Adama asks if it's the "ramblings" that Baltar's lawyer smuggled out of the brig. Roslin says that it's being reprinted throughout the fleet and he's calling it "My Triumphs, My Mistakes." She then adds that she's feeling like having a "good old-fashioned book burning.". From Preview
