In order to whet people's appetite for more Battlestar Galactica between seasons, two series of min-episodes have been released on the Internet. Referred to as "webisodes", they provide back story to the events of the seasons which they had preceded.

Galen Tyrol and Saul Tigh organize the budding resistance movement on Cylon-occupied New Caprica, but they find recruiting new soldiers is becoming dangerous and difficult. The Cylons have instituted a curfew. Violators go to jail, which is the first thing the Cylons built on New Caprica. New Capricans are shot on the spot if weapons are found in their tents. A stash of weapons belonging to Longo was confiscated by the Cylons, but the resistance was able to retrieve some of them which were hidden underneath his latrine. The Cylons are also setting up a human police force to take over for the Cylon Centurions, who are doing most of the police work.

Duck has refused to work with the resistance, on the grounds of his relationship and intended child with Nora. Tyrol is highly displeased at this, particularly his reasons, as they parallel Tyrol's own situation; Jammer suggests respecting Duck's decision.

A ritual for protection of the crops from blight is said in the temple. As Sister Tivenan leaves, Jean Barolay abruptly shifts the conversation to the movement of the weapons stash into the temple; Jammer strongly objects, but he is overruled by Tigh.

In the evening, Nora prays to Aphrodite to bless she and Duck with a child. He tells her his decision about joining the resistance. She is pleased that he refused Tyrol.

During the night, Tigh, Tyrol, Jammer, and Barolay move the weapons into the temple disguising them.

The next morning, Nora wakes Duck saying he will be late to work. She tries to convince him to go to temple after work with her. He refuses, saying he talks to the gods in his own way.

Cally and Nora visit the temple. Nora is holding Cally's baby while Cally is performing a ceremony. At that moment Cylon Centurions can be heard outside, and a Number Five announces that they will enter the temple. Several men try to block them, but the Cylons force their way in and gunfire can be seen and heard. While trying to run away Cally falls to the ground protecting her baby, but Nora is shot and killed when she tries to retrieve her bag.

Tyrol, Cally and Jammer return Nora's bag to Duck, and inform him about the death of Nora. Duck is physically sickened by the news. He becomes angry and demands to know if there were weapons in the temple. Tyrol tries to avoid the question, but Duck doesn't relent until Tyrol admits the truth. At that point, Duck orders them out of his tent.

Three days after the attack on the temple, Tigh, Barolay, and Jammer discuss the results of the attack, which has brought about positive effects for the resistance. The general population has started to side with the resistance and 1,000 people protested outside Colonial One over the attack on the temple. Since the attack, recruitment has become easier with 150 Colonials signing up. Tigh thinks that this was a good deal because the loss of a few weapons was worth the propaganda victory. However, Jammer is upset that the loss of 10 lives was not worth it. Tigh comes down hard on Jammer, stating that people die in war, nice people, and the resistance has no room for crybabies.

Tyrol and Tigh discuss the capture of Jammer by the Cylons. Tyrol insists that Jammer won't reveal the work of the resistance. Jammer is imprisoned in the New Caprica Detention Center and is visited by a Number Five, who frees him of his bonds and says he wants to talk to him about what happened in the temple.

Number Five proposes to Jammer that the massacre at the temple may have actually been planned by the Resistance. Number Five reminds Jammer of the good that has been accomplished by working together in peace. He offers Jammer the chance to stop further bloodshed by informing the Cylons of potentially life-threatening actions by the Resistance. Jammer balks at the idea of becoming a traitor to the Resistance, but accepts a key card which will let him enter the Cylon detention center to report the Resistance's secret plans if he chooses to become an informant.

Jammer is released from the New Caprica Detention Center and is met outside by Tyrol. Tyrol notes that he was informed of Jammer's arrest by Boomer, and then asks him what he told the Cylons. Jammer nervously explains that the Toasters questioned him about the temple massacre. Jammer reassures Tyrol that he did not tell the Cylons anything, but Tyrol appears doubtful.

Meanwhile, Duck returns to his tent and begins to clean up the mess from his earlier outburst. He bursts into tears while gathering up a broken picture frame and an icon of the Lords of Kobol.

After the dedication ceremony for Galen and Cally Tyrol's son, Duck approaches Tyrol in the temple. Duck informs Tyrol that he has joined the New Caprica Police, in hopes of finding out who tipped the Cylons off and is responsible for Nora's death.

Afterwards, Tyrol meets in the backroom with Saul Tigh, Jammer and Jean Barolay to discuss their next move against the Cylons. Tigh suggests hiding explosives in the grain silo, which Jammer points out is across from the hospital. When Tigh shows a lack of concern for the patients' safety, Jammer excuses himself "to patrol the perimeter."

Outside, Duck is smoking and examining his new NCP patch. He puts it away when Jammer comes out, and the two friends share a smoke together. Jammer notices that Duck said he was going to quit, to which Duck says "What's the point?" and leaves. Once alone, Jammer sits quietly, and reaches into his pocket to find the Cylon device Number Five gave him.
