The final episode begins with Apollo (Richard Hatch) and Sheba (Anne Lockhart) going on a double date with Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) and Cassiopeia (Laurette Spang). Apollo takes the group to the highest point aboard the Galactica, positioned directly above the main thrusters, to where a mostly forgotten Celestial Chamber is located. The room is a dome made of transparent tylinium and gives the viewer an unparalleled view of the stars, to Apollo “It’s like riding in the hand of God.”
Note: Apollo explains how there use to be many of these chambers on the Galactica when she was launched 500 yahren ago. So they are flying around in a ship five centuries old? That doesn’t seem safe to me.
While Apollo waxes nostalgic about the good ole days when navigators would come up to one of these stations to verify the computers navigation information Sheba notices something coming through on the ancient and unused Gamma Frequencies. The picture is in very poor quality but Apollo says it reminds him of the space crafts that the colonies used many yahrens ago. The group is excited about this discovery and yank poor Boomer (Herbert Jefferson Jr.) out of bed to get his expertise on long range communications on the job. He isn’t able to clean up the picture much but he does deduce that either it’s a harmonic signal, which means it could be really close, or if the signal is at its original frequency then it could have been traveling through space for thousands of yahrens. So basically not very helpful.
