A Galactic(a) Endeavor - The Passage (3x10)
There is some technobable in this episode. Galactica's cloned beef supply got tainted and the need food fast. Somehow they know there is an algae planet on the other side of a star cluster, and they only have enough time to go through the cluster rather than around. Radiation requires raptors to lead civilian ships though. Some ships are lost.
Kat, Starbuck's rival, loses one, then loses a second. Determined not to lose the second she stays in the radiation way too long. She guides the ship to safety, get promoted to CAG, and dies. Bye Kat. Meow.
The over exposure and brightness of the star cluster is a cool effect. This was a pretty good episode that actually redeemed Kat just in time to kill her. The plot may not make sense if I was to actually think about it. Oh well. 4 out of 5 radio isotopes.
