FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX


WarningThis page loads 50 Mo of data! This can take some time if your @ connection is slow...

You can also check the six split parts of this mega-recap, but for maximal viewing pleasure, I recommend this version. :cheer:



Overview

Chief Tyrol throws himself into the task of constructing a new Viper from scratch, despite the Galactica crew's misgivings and apprehension. Helo must deal with the repercussions of his relationship with Sharon Valerii on Caprica. A Cylon computer virus long thought deleted reasserts itself in Galactica's computers, putting the ship and the crew in danger.

Summary

Laura Roslin's illness has reached a critical level. While she is still well enough to walk, Dr. Cottle gives her approximately one month to live.
Helo has become persona non grata to many of the crew who distrust him due to his romance with the Caprica copy of Humanoid Cylon Sharon Valerii. Helo and Chief Tyrol have a fight over Sharon Valerii's love.
Many of the crew, even the generally level-headed and reliable Lieutenant Gaeta, are showing the strain of the apparent futility and fatigue of running from the Cylons.
Chief Tyrol, with also little else to do with scrapped Vipers, begins a project to craft a new fighter. Initially, many crew are very skeptical, but they and others help Tyrol.
Helo suggests carbon composite material for the skin in lieu of the scarce metal plating normally used for Vipers. As a result Tyrol's new ship has stealth capabilities; it is nearly invisible to DRADIS.
Kara Thrace, Brendan Constanza and Lee Adama nearly suffocate when the life-support systems on the firing range malfunction.
A Cylon logic bomb has studied all ship's systems. It will fully control Galactica once an expected Cylon force arrives to activate it by infiltration. Gaeta and Baltar work together to figure a way to rid the ship of it by erasing the hard drives of all computers. Doing this, however, will leave the ship a sitting duck for an attack while time is needed to restore function and data to the computers.
Adama, after asking the advice of the President, allows the Cylon Sharon Valerii to connect herself to the ship's mainframe and communication systems while Gaeta and Baltar erase the hard drives of all computers.
A Cylon fighter armada consisting of hundreds of Raiders and Heavy Raiders attempts to activate the bomb. However, Sharon Valerii responds by transmitting a version of the same bomb to the Cylon fleet, disabling it as the Cylons did the Colonial fleet during the Fall of the Twelve Colonies. The Viper squadrons annihilate the helpless Cylon fleet in a joyous moment of payback.
Kara Thrace takes the new fighter, dubbed the Blackbird, for a initially ungainly test flight. This fighter is designed for speed, and soon delivers it. Lee Adama, in a Viper chase plane, is horrified when the Blackbird disappears, but Starbuck rises above to face his ship quietly, proving the new fighter's stealth ability.
In a ceremony similar to the one given to Commander Adama in the Miniseries, President Roslin inspects and christens the new fighter. Many sign the ship. Tyrol reveals the name of this first fighter: Laura.
The mere work on the new fighter renewed the creativity and hope of the crew--a reason why Adama allowed its construction to continue, despite the logic bomb crisis.

I was lucky: I had stored the "ready to post" script in a TXT file. All I had to do was to cute/paste it. :dance:

It's ruining the bandwidth of the website but it's a must-see anyway. And an insane work. :bow:

I discovered a lot of details I didn't notice while watching the episode.

Why not post a few and then link us to a flickr page? I think that would be way friendlier for those of us who don't want to wade through 650 (or wait for the page to load). Just a suggestion.

Well, I put a warning on top of the thread. So people with slow connections can shut down the page if they need to. You can also "force-scroll" (even I do that while I edit this very post) the page to its bottom (with the mouse on the slider) to read new posts, even if all images aren't loaded yet.

It's also possible to open this page, and work or watch something other while the page is loading in the background. Of course you have to be used to systematical multi-windowed surfing. I acknowledge that a browser can "hang" if there is a too big "overload", but usually it works and it's only a matter of patience.
Once it's done, if your cache settings aren't too low, you can enjoy it in peace. And even store it for later by saving the page as "HTML file with images" or "web archive" (1 big MHT file).

And unfortunately, I consider this as a whole, which has to be seen "as is", and this means all DCL (650, heh) images.

Ok guys...
Due to popular request, I also did a Split Version of this mega-recap.
There are six parts.

Of course, linking to your hosting site would allow you to keep it as a whole instead of having to split it up as you did.
