Starbuck considers Eurayle's offer and reluctantly agrees, and returns to Scavenge World. Meanwhile, three Cylon basestars rapidly approach the Fleet, sending ahead wave after wave of Raiders. Eurayle awakens Adama and he returns to the bridge just in time to see a basestar on a collision course with Galactica.
