Plot Synopsis

As the Fleet continues its voyage through the void, Sire Uri and his men are placed under house arrest. Meanwhile, a "space vampire" from the void has boarded the Galactica, killing people for their energy, and assuming the appearance of its victims. Arriving at the chamber of the Memory Machine, the Mimic touches the mechanism and assumes the identity of Adama. However, the force of Adama's personality ultimately proves to be the creature's undoing.
