Plot Synopsis

Apollo and another Colonial named Enoch visit a planet populated by aggressive red apes, and bring back a large sample of fruit to the Galactica. Later, Enoch eats the fruit, which he cannot resist, and transforms into a red ape! He tears around Galactica like a red version of the Hulk, then steals a Viper. He is pursued by several female Warriors, all of whom he cripples — causing them to crash on the planet along with his ship.
