Plot Summary: Apollo and Starbuck find a primitive sleeper ship carrying a man, a woman, and four children. It is taken aboard, and is believed to be from Earth. The council wants to open the ship, even though it might kill the inhabitants. Adama will not allow this. Dr. Wilker and Dr. Salik discover that the inhabitants cannot survive in their atmosphere. Apollo, Starbuck, and Cassiopea steal the ship, and continue with it to it's destination, Paradeen. The male, Michael, informs the Galacticans that they are originally from Terra, but have fled the war with the Eastern Alliance (an evil government), who are killing the democratic Nationalists. An Eastern Alliance ship follows the sleeper ship and captures the party. However, the Galacticans are able to then capture the Alliance men, and take them back to the fleet in their own ship, and imprison them on the Prison Barge. The fleet then continues on to Terra, gaining the location from Michael.

Notes: Anne's screentime is very limited in this episode. She only has one scene: In the officer's club, Starbuck comes to sit down with Athena, Boomer, Sheba and Apollo to discuss the discovery of the Colonists when a non-military policeman, Reese gives his blund opinion.
