announcement that Tom Zarek has been elected as one of the delegates.

removed, and that he be bared from travelling. Roslin is adamant that
nothing be done to make a martyr out of him. Zarek makes a speech over the

slightly peeved. That is until Number Six steps in and convinces him it
might not be that bad.
Kara and Lee relax in the park on Cloud Nine. Kara pretends to be all
serious about the security issues – she’s been assigned to look after Baltar
– but squirts Lee with a hose when he least expects it.
