= Eye of Jupiter Synopsis = 
This is part one of a two-part episode (see [BattlestarGalactica/Rapture 
Rapture]) from Battlestar Galactica, Season Three (episode 11).
== Act One == 
==== Scene One: Teaser  Algae Planet ====
Raptors go down to Algae Planet.  It's the 14th day since they've been there.  
People are obviously working hard.  Tyrol hears a mysterious sound in the hills 
and turns to look.  
==== Scene Two: Same ====
Tyrol and Sam explain how tough the work is when all of a sudden a raptor 
almost lands on top of them.
==== Scene Three: Same ====
Inside a building on the planet, Lee and Dee hear the raptor outside.  Lee is 
furious and asks who is flying like that.  Dee tells him it was Starbuck and it 
was the third time this week.  She sarcastically says it's amazing how Starbuck 
is always at the top of the pilot rotation.  Lee tried to explain it away but 
goes to meet Kara in the raptor.  Dee decides not to go with him and watches 
him leave.
==== Scene Four: Planet, inside Kara's raptor ====
Lee meets Starbuck and tells her she came in a little hot.  Starbuck sasses 
back and then they kiss.  Lee tells her that this is insane.  Starbuck says she 
like it that way as she undresses and kisses.
==== Scene Five: Planet ====
Callie asks Tyrol what he wants her to do next.  He gives her some instructions 
then hears the sound in the hills again.
==== Scene Six: Planet, inside Kara's raptor ====
Lee tells Starbuck that he feels guilty and says they have to do something.  
Starbuck asks what they can do and Lee suggests divorce.  Starbuck says she 
can't divorce and Lee says she can because she said her marriage was failing.  
Starbuck tells him marriage is a sacrament, that it's not a game and that she 
made a vow and won't break it.  Lee says she breaks it every time they meet.  
She rationalizes that divorce is different and she's just bending the rules.  
She laughs. Lee says he can't live like this and sees his guilt in his wife's 
eyes.  Kara mocks him as being poetic and says he doesn't need to make a big 
deal out of this.  Lee says it is a big deal.  Kara relents and says she won't 
divorce and he won't cheat.  They're trapped.
==== Scene Seven: Basestar ====
Here is crying.  We see Gaius lying in bed wondering whom the Final Five are 
and if he's a Cylon.  He walks toward Hera.  HE finds her and Boomer says she's 
not well. Gaius walks up to Hera and touches her to calm her and tells her that 
he's there for her.
==== Scene Eight: Planet ====
Tyrol hears the noises in the hills again.  He decides to go up the hills to 
see what it is.  After a long trek, he sees he has more to go and keeps 
climbing.  He then finds a cave.  He goes in and see that there has been 
development in the cave.  He finds a door and opens it.  Inside he finds a 
huge, massive abandoned temple.
== Act II ==
==== Scene Nine: Temple/Galactica via Radio ====
Galactica crew examine the temple.  Tyrol says carbon readings put it at 4,000 
years, which lines up with the exodus of the Thirteenth Tribe.  On the radio, 
the President asks him if he really thinks it's the Temple of Five.  Tyrol 
confirms and says his father was a priest and he recognizes it from the books.  
He says it's important to the faith, but correct and says his father's faith.  
In Galactica, Laura is in Adama's quarters.  She asks Tyrol over the wireless 
if this place could be related to the Eye of Jupiter.  Tyrol said he doesn't 
know but he only remembers what he saw when sneaking into his dad's study.  
Adama asks what this is.  Laura says the Scriptures say it's a marker left 
behind by the Thirteenth Tribe.  It's supposed to point the way to Earth.  An 
alarm goes off on Galactica and Gaita tell Adama that four baseships jumped 
into view.   Adama leaves for CIC.
==== Scene Ten: Galactica  CIC ====
Tigh tells Adama the Cylons jumped right on top of them.  An officer tells 
Adama that the FTL Drives are ready and they can jump.  Adama tells him to do 
it.  The fleet begins jumping but Adama says they must hold the position until 
everyone is back on board.  Laura tells Adama that if the Eye of Jupiter is a 
marker towards Earth and he interrupts and says he can't let the Cylons get 
their hands on it.  Tigh realizes the Cylons aren't launching raiders.  In 
fact, they're standing off.  Laura says it's odd.  Then, there's a message over 
the comm and that the baseship requests to speak to him.  Adama tells him to 
put them through.  Over the speaker there's a voice saying it's a pleasure to 
hear his voice  it's Gaius Baltar.
==== Scene Eleven: Galactica ====
A Cylon raider is heading towards Galactica.  Adama and Laura walk in the 
hallway of Galactica.  Laura says she can't believe they're letting Cylons on 
the ship.  Adama says they must want something bad if they're willing to talk 
or else they would have started shooting.  Laura asks why they're sending 
Baltar and that they should know they wouldn't believe a word he says. Adama 
says the longer he talks, the more time they have to get Lee and his people off 
the planet.
==== Scene Twelve: Same ====
Under escort, D'Anna, Baltar, Boomer, and Brother are on Galactica on their way 
to meet the leaders.  Along the way, Head Six shows up and tells Baltar that it 
feels like old times.  Baltar says he can't believe how much he misses that 
place.  Six reminds him that he can't return  that they'd execute him.  
Baltar says he knows but says he feels like he's finally home.  Six says if 
he's a Cylon that those feelings are all part of his programming.  He said he's 
really human, that it will he his last chance to see his kind again.  At a 
door, Athena walks out and tells the Colonel to wait and points at he Cylon 
avatar and tell him that she is Boomer.  Tight told her that she just lost her 
visiting privileges and must be held until they get back.  Boomer and Athena 
==== Scene Thirteen: Same ====
In a meeting room, Adama and Laura walk in.  Laura refuses to look at Gaius, He 
sounds desperate and tries to get her attention.  He tells her it's good to see 
her.  She looks up.  Gaius walks back to the Cylons.  D'Anna tells them that 
weapons aren't necessary.  Cavil tells them they come in peace.  Laura says, 
"what do you want" and gets down to business.  D'Anna says they want 
the Eye of Jupiter and they must skip all the denials and protestations.  She 
says they know Galactica has people on the ground and that they've found the 
original settlement of the Thirteenth Tribe.  Cavil says they know they haven't 
jumped away because they found the artifact but haven't retrieved it yet.  
Laura tells them that they have people on the surface and aren't leaving them 
behind.  He says it's touching but not convincing.  Gaius adds that the chances 
they've all found the planet at the same time is small and that he'd like to 
address some issues.  Laura says the less he talks, the better the meeting will 
go.  Gaius said because of him they're still alive.  Laura leaves in disgusts.  
Gaius reminds her that he saved her life twice and is losing count.  Adama 
wants to know their offer.  D'Anna says they must hand over the Eye of Jupiter 
and they'll let them live.  Cavil adds they'll throw in Baltar and adds he's 
improvising and thinks they'd like some private time with the former leader.  
Cavil asks them if he's right.  Tigh chimes in and says it's worth thinking 
about.  Adama looks at Baltar and says it's definitely worth thinking about.
==== Scene Fourteen: Galactica hallway ====
Boomer and Sharon are in the hallways where boomer tells her that despite the 
uniform, that it isn't her home anymore.  Sharon says she made her choice and 
knows her loyalties.  Boomer suggests her daughter is still alive. Sharon 
accuses her of lying.  Boomer says someone's lying but it's not her.  She says 
Hera's alive at least for now.  Sharon seems disgusted and torn.  Boomer 
explains Hera is ill and they don't know why.  Sharon doesn't believe her.  
Boomer explains that Baltar found her on new Caprica during the evacuation.  
She adds that from what she can gather, she was hidden at Laura Roslyn's school 
and suggests she planned the whole thing in the first place.  Sharon says she 
doesn't need to listen and told the guards to watch her.  Boomer says they let 
Sharon think Hera was dead and that they still think Sharon is a thing and not 
a person  she's not one of them.
==== Scene Fifteen: Galactica Meeting room ====
Adama tells the Cylons that he's not giving the key to finding Earth.  D'Anna 
tells him that if he brings it up from the planet, that they'll attack.  Adama 
walks up to her face and tells her that he's setting the terms now: if they 
attack, he'll launch every nuke he's got and destroy the continent.  D'Anna 
says he's bluffing  that he wants to find Earth as much as they do.  He 
tells the guards to escort them back to their ship.  Gaius is anguished and 
hoped he could stay on Galactica.
== Act III ==
==== Scene Sixteen: Planet ====
On the surface of the planet, Lee and Kara are chatting on the wireless to the 
Admiral and President and asking what to look for.  The Admiral says it points 
the way to Earth.  Laura says they don't know what it looks like.  Lee asks his 
dad if he believes it.  Laura wants to know too.  Adama says the Cylons believe 
it and he can't take a chance that they're right.  He gives Lee orders that if 
they get into the temple; he's supposed to blow it.  Lee confirms, and then 
there is a shrill noise over the wireless.  Kara says the Cylons are jamming 
the signal.  Lee says they need a plan to defend the temple while Tyrol 
searches for the artifact.  Kara asks what they're going to defend it with 
 they have nothing.  Lee wants to draft the civilians helping on the 
planet. Kara suggests that Sam should commend the civilians.  Lee asks her if 
she's serious.  She is.
==== Scene Seventeen: Same ====
Sam walks into the building where Lee and Kara are on the planet.  Sam comments 
how only emergencies let them see each other anymore.  Lee gives him command of 
civilians and explains the chain of command.  Sam objects and says some have 
never held a rifle before.  Lee tells him that he's supposed to be the expert 
at turning civilians into soldiers.  Sam says they were guerrilla fighters and 
have never held a fixed position. Lee tells him to learn it fast while Tyrol 
searches for the Eye of Jupiter.  Sam objects that they must risk their lives 
for something they've never found yet.  Lee says he doesn't even know it exists 
but says he doesn't have to give him details.  Sam is about to fight him when 
Kara interrupts.  She tells him the Major is in charge of this one and waits 
for Sam's acknowledgment.  Sam's says he wouldn't want to step between her and 
"her major".  They leave and Lee tells Kara he thought that went very 
well.  Kara says he'll do it.  Lee says "he better".
==== Scene Eighteen: Planet  Temple ====
Tyrol's crew is installing explosives in the temple while he's trying to figure 
out what the "Eye of Jupiter" is.  Callie tells Tyrol she misses 
their son and asks if he thinks he's okay.  Tyrol is distracted and says he's 
fine.  He tells her that when he was growing up he hated everything about the 
faith and the endless discussions of it at the dinner table.  He admits to her 
that he'd sneak into his mother's prayer room and dance around naked with porn 
mags just to defy the gods.  He wonders how he found this place and just got a 
feeling to start walking and found it.  Callie says that he has a reverence and 
even talks softer while in the temple.  He admits that he feels something in 
there  something true, but at the same time is setting charges in the 
holiest of the holies  the Temple of Five  if only his parents 
could see it and he's going to blow it up.
==== Scene Nineteen:  Galactica ====
Galactica is docked next to the baseship.  Gaita tells Adama that he analyzed 
the star and found it unstable and on the verge of going supernova.  He says no 
one known when but the only warning they'll get is a helium flash before it 
obliterates the entire planetary system.  He admits that he's not religious but 
the odds that human and Cylon converge on the planet at the same moment just 
before a star is to go supernova is bizarre.  Adama says if this is the work of 
a higher power, then they have on hell of a sense of humor.
==== Scene Twenty: Baseship ====
On the baseship, the Cylons work out the dilemma of the artifact and how 
Galactica might destroy it, according to Cavil, D'Anna, Six, and Gaius.  Cavil 
mentions that they can kill the humans and forfeit the Eye; that they'll still 
find Earth some day.  D'Anna tells them that plans are in motion.  She put a 
heavy raider on the surface while they slipped past the radar.  Six asks why 
they weren't informed.  D'Anna said it was a "need-to-know" mission.  
She says they've cut off the communications and put troops on the ground.  She 
expects the Centurions to retrieve the Eye and Cavil can take out Galactica.

can send a rescue party.  He takes command and puts them to work and gives a 
pep rally.
==== Scene Twenty-Three: Same ====
Lee and Sam gear up.  Lee tells him his speech was honest and he'd be a good 
officer.  Sam says an officer swears an oath and knows how to keep it.  Lee 
tries to deny the affair.  Sam says he knows.  He says he knows his wife 
 that he's been married to her for a long time  he asks him if he 
thinks he's the first.  Lee is surprised.   Sam says he chose Kara but he 
doesn't know what Lee is trying to do.  Lee says he's trying to fight a war 
 to save the people.  Sam says he'll do anything for the cause and 
==== Scene Twenty-Four: Basestar ====
D'Anna tells Gaius she's on the verge of seeing the Final Five and maybe the 
face of God himself.  They're talking in front of the Hybrid.  The Hybrid says 
it will be revealed to the chosen one and looks to Gaius.  But D'Anna thinks 
she's the chosen one and says that the Final Five await her and she'll know the 
truth.  Suddenly Six shows up and asks what truth?  She tells them she thought 
they shared something special [ custom essays], 
but now feels neglected.  Gaius tries to say they're integral but D'Anna 
interrupts and tells them that they're finished.  She says that Baltar and her 
destiny is separate from Six; that only she and Baltar can enter the temple.  
Six asks what she's after.  D'Anna says that Six can't be involved but Six 
wants to go.  D'Anna asks her to pray for them, that they'll be praying for her 
and she turns and leav
==== Scene Twenty-five: Planet ====

they're open for business.  Kara is flying a raptor and sees the Centurions on 
the planet.  They send a missile towards her craft.  She flies back to the base 
to inform them of the message.  Dee spots the coded messages and then sees the 
three Centurions.  Starbuck is hit by the missile and goes down.  Dee relays 
the message to headquarters, specifically to Lee.

on her.

asks him if he's out of his mind.
==== Scene Thirty: Galactica ====
Galactica's radar detects six heavy raiders heading towards the planet.  Tight 
says they're testing them about nuking the planet.  Laura says unfortunately 
they are bluffing but Adama replies, "are we?"  He then orders nukes 
to be loaded into tubes for launch.
==== Scene Thirty-one: Planet ====
Another officer agrees that Lee is right, in the standoff between Sam and Lee.  
There aren't enough people to send a rescue party to hold the position.  Sam 
says they should screw the position and use guerrilla tactics instead.  Lee 
disagrees because it's not the orders 
[ essay service] he was given.  Sam 
accuses him of being a toy soldier and that they're talking about his wife.

said he's going to go find his wife.
