This episode begins with Apollo (Richard Hatch) on a long patrol where he attempts to lead a Cylon squadron away from the Galactica’s location. He is successful at fooling the Cylons but unfortunately he runs out of fuel and has to make an emergency landing on the planet Equellus in the Hatari Sector. Moments after making a successful safe landing Apollo meets a young boy named Puppis (Johnny Timko) and his over-protective mother Vella (Katherine Cannon) who live on a nearby ranch. It seems Apollo has landed on a planet that is almost as technological advanced as the American Old West circa 1800; they ride horses, gamble in saloons, but apparently never developed firearms as their guns use air canisters.
You can tell it’s a Space Western because of the metal cowboy hats.
Red-Eye and his silly armored horse.
Card Shark Boxey takes everyone’s jellybeans.
Maybe if we all clap and say "We do believe in Cylons" he will return.
“But sir, he’s one of the show’s main characters. We have to go find him."
“Mom, he was totally shitting me, wasn’t he?”
