Plot

Survivor Count: 49,590

A woman named Sesha Abinell leads a small team of gunmen aboard the recreational ship "Cloud 9", taking a group of bar patrons hostage. Among the patrons are then-Captain Lee Adama and then-Petty Officer Second Class Anastasia Dualla (together on a date), Laura Roslin's secretary Billy Keikeya (who finally realizes that Dualla has a serious interest in Lee), and Ellen Tigh (who is there to socialize).

Sesha demands Rear Admiral William Adama hand over the Cylon prisoner, Sharon Valerii, immediately or the hostages will die. Learning that Sesha wants revenge for the recent death of her husband in a Cylon attack, Adama refuses her demand. Once he learns his son is one of the hostages, he reconsiders but President Laura Roslin believes that handing the Cylon over will make them look weak and they will lose control of the fleet to more terrorists.

Captain Kara Thrace and a group of Marines are on "Cloud Nine" as well and Adama orders them on to storm the bar and take out the gunmen. The plan backfires, and Kara accidentally shoots Lee during the confusion. As Lee lies dying, Billy plans to jump a gunman and take his weapon, but Dualla urges him to stand fast.

Adama calls Sesha with an ultimatum: he will hand over the Cylon, but not alive. Sesha agrees, and Adama sends the frozen cadaver of the original "Galactica"-Boomer, while the pregnant Caprica-Boomer remains in her cell. One of the gunmen realizes it has been dead for weeks and they have been duped. Sesha orders Dualla killed but Billy grabs a gun and shoots the would-be executioner. The executioner also shoots and kills Billy. A squad of Marines then storms the bar, kills the terrorists, freeing the hostages.

President Roslin mourns for Billy as Dualla waits for Lee's recovery.
