FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX


WarningThis is the split version of my Flight Of the Phoenix mega-recap. It comes in six parts. I've tried to keep scenes intact, i.e. not to split them. ;)

I still recommend the "one shot" version, though. I've locked the threads so that the parts will stay in order. There is a comments thread where you will be able to discuss this Photo Essay.



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.
