She picks Kacey up and puts her in her mother's arms. She walks off. Kacey's mother makes a crack about keeping her up.

Gaeta briefs Roslin and Adama on Baltar's reach into finding Earth. He says that the Pythia scroll indicated a lion's head with a pulsating red and blue eye has a clue to Earth.

Baltar and Six walk through a room where a naked Eight is mediating.

Six tells him that they use projection and suddenly they stand in a lush forest. She explains that she chooses to see the beauty of God's creation rather than blank walls. A Five walks through her projection.

Back in his beach vision, Baltar tells his Inner Six that he understands projection. Then he wonders how he has such a vivid imagination himself. Inner Six's response leads Baltar to raise the question if he's a Cylon.

Six has heard his outburst. He covers by saying that he was talking to himself.

In the pilots' lounge on Galactica, Racetrack offers to be Sharon 's second because she wants an opportunity to fly. When she calls Sharon 'Boomer', Sharon says that wasn't her. Helo calls out that they need a call sign for her. They settle on Hot Dog's suggestion that it be Athena.

Tigh walks in and sits with Kara. They start talking and it ends up in Kara and Tigh commenting about their trials on New Caprica, while Kat, Helo and Sharon had it easy in the fleet.

On the basestar, Six and Baltar talk. She says that his information and rescuing Hera have gone a long way. He asks about the remaining five models, which he hasn't seen even on the basestar. She says that she can't discuss them. She is suddenly called to the "bridge."

On the "bridge," Baltar witnesses a discussion between six of the models (Three, Five, Six, Eight, Simon and Leoben). The basestar sent to a nebula to investigate Baltar's clue has been infected. They debate what to do without getting any other Cylon infected, which is difficult since they are all from the same gene pool.

Baltar's Inner Six tells him to offer to go. He doesn't like the idea of putting his neck on the line. She says that he has nothing to worry about since he's human. And if he's not, it'll be over quick then. She says the Cylons have to see that he can be counted on when the going gets tough.

Baltar tells the Cylons that he'll go. They say they still need a way of landing. He says they must have some Colonial vessels. The Eight says that they can put a Raptor on autopilot.
