Plot Summary: The fleet is plagued by a group of glowing lights that constantly fly past them too fast to be followed. Also, Vipers keep disappearing whenever they follow the lights. On a mission to find the men, Apollo, Starbuck, and Sheba find a desolate planet, and the remains of a ship wreck. There they find Count Iblis, who claims to be, if not a deity, then the next best thing. His mysterious powers sway the fleet, as he promises to deliver them if they will follow him. Adama doubts Iblis' word, but gives him the task of delivering the traitor Baltar, which he does. Everyone is ready to follow Iblis, but Adama and Apollo soon realize that Iblis is really the Prince of Darkness and that those 'lights' are after him. In a final battle, Iblis kills Apollo, then is taken away for killing someone who hasn't given himself freely. Starbuck and Sheba, while bringing Apollo's body back, are captured by the lights, who reveal themselves to be the good version of Iblis' type. They resurrect Apollo, and give the Galacticans the coordinates for Earth.
