While the Galactica and her commander attempt to recover from the damage sustained previously, Dane finds himself caught between two sides.

 

Didja Know?

 

Battlestar Galactica: Season Zero was a 13-issue mini-series published by Dynamite Entertainment, covering the crew's adventures starting with Commander Adama assigned to the command of the Galactica, two years before the fall of the Colonies.

Didja Notice?

 

Notice that the face-covering helmets worn by the humanoid Cylons have a centurion-like look to them.

On page 7, we see two previously unheard of battlestars, Eos and Universa. The lower ship is seen to be the Eos.

On page 8, panel 1, Admiral Landis' dialog is mistakenly given to Admiral Rohner.

 

Also on page 8, D'anna tells her Cylon colleagues that Admiral Rohner has been taken into military custody and she has been left in charge of the henhouse. This is a play on the old idiom of "the fox guarding the henhouse", meaning the fox will be able to eat its fill in such a situation.

 

Dualla is again referred to as "lieutenant" instead of "petty officer" as in "Loose Cannon".

 

The humanoid Cylons take the captured Dane and Boomer to a space station in orbit near Tauron's outermost moon. The station is later said by Boomer to probably be an abandoned waystation left over from the war.

The Cylons who visit Dr. Jonas on page 13 are Numbers One, Two, Five, and Six.
