Battlestar Galactica Cast

Nine months ago, Number 6 was killed during the destruction of Caprica, only to be resurrected in a new body in a Cylon rebirthing chamber. Ten weeks ago, after Boomer was shot aboard the Galactica, her consciousness was downloaded into a new body on Caprica. Now, as the Cylons begin rebuilding the planet, both replicas find themselves hailed by their fellows as ‘Heroes of the Cylon’; however, Number 6 is haunted by visions of her former lover, Baltar, while Boomer is unable to come to terms with the fact that she betrayed everyone she ever loved. Concerned that ‘Sharon 8’ may be a problem, the Cylon leadership, D'Anna and Doral, decide that unless Number 6 can help her adjust to her new life, they will have to transfer Boomer’s consciousness into permanent cold storage, condemning her to a living death. Elsewhere on Caprica, Starbuck’s lover, Anders, prepares to lead his freedom fighters to strike a vicious blow at their enemies. On the Galactica, Doctor Cottle determines that the pregnant Boomer has a detached placenta: unless he carries out a premature caesarean birth, her baby will die. Attempting to win Boomer’s trust, Number 6 tells her about her former lover, Baltar; Boomer is shocked to learn of the doctor’s pivotal role in the destruction of mankind, while Number 6 in turn is rocked by the revelation that Baltar is still alive, and is now Vice President of the very Colonial fleet that the Cylons are attempting to track down and destroy. Back on the Galactica, Boomer and Helo’s newborn baby, Hela, struggles to stay alive; meanwhile, knowing that the hybrid infant could draw unwanted attention from the Cylon agents hidden amongst the fleet, President Roslin and Admiral Adama make a tough decision concerning the child’s fate. On Caprica, Number 6 and Boomer meet with D’Anna in a café – they are unaware that in the car park below, Anders and his team are setting explosive charges that will blow the building and its occupants sky-high…
