Plot Summary: Apollo and Starbuck follow the escaped Eastern Alliance ship back to Terra. Before reaching it, they are picked up by the race of white lights that had helped them against Count Iblis. Their representative, John, asks Apollo to help avert a war that would destroy Terra. He is sent down, appearing to all of the inhabitants as a man they had thought was dead. He is unable to convince anyone, and is thrown in prison. Starbuck rescues him, and they call the Galactica to try to help before Armageddon occurs. The President of the Western people has made a treaty with the Eastern Alliance, in which all hostilities will stop. However, the Eastern Alliance is lying, and plans to strike when the guard is down. Apollo lectures the people of how his own race was tricked, and before anything can be done, the Eastern Alliance fires its warheads. The Galactica is able to destroy all the bombs, and the frightened world powers open their eyes and talk peace. In return for their help, John tells Apollo that Terra is not the Earth that they are searching for.
