"The Face of the Enemy" webisode series focuses on Felix Gaeta, who is accompanied by a handful of humans and two Number Eights on a Raptor, during which they mysteriously begin to die, one by one. The events of this story take place between six and nine days after "Revelations".

Summary

Episode 1

  • Release date: December 12, 2008
  • Running time: ~4:11

The webisode begins with Felix Gaeta covered in blood in a Raptor while drifting in space, nine days after the end of "Revelations". Images flash of him frantically writing down a list of names on a pad, a Number Eight cutting into her hand, someone holding a pair of needle-nose pliers, and a struggle amongst the occupants. It then flashes back to three days before this scenario (six days after "Revelations").

Gaeta is ordered to take a vacation by Saul Tigh, despite his protests. He is told to take a shuttle to the Zephyr for some R&R. He runs into Hoshi in the hallway, who gives him morpha for his pain. They kiss goodbye, showing that they are in a romantic relationship. Gaeta is accompanied by two Number Eights, deckhand Brooks, Lt. J. "Shark" Finnegan, and an unnamed co-pilot. They are less than 15 minutes away from the Zephyr when hostile Cylon contacts are detected on DRADIS, forcing the Fleet to make an emergency jump. However, when the Raptor jumps, they find themselves separated from the rest of the Fleet.

Analysis

  • The fleet has left the devastated planet Earth they found in "Revelations" and is again on the run from the hostile faction of Cylons.
  • Saul Tigh has returned to duty.
  • It does not appear to be an unusual occurrence for there to be Number Eights on-board the Galactica, or for them to be taking a Raptor ride to the Zephyr.
  • Felix Gaeta has a metal leg replacement.
