A cylon centurian is seen but because its Halloween everyone just thinks its a cool costume. The cylon plans to take control of a radio station in New York and notify the cylon fleet of Earth, a primitive planet of human life the cylons were not aware of.

The Return of Starbuck

Aboard the Galactica a teenage genuis scientist tells Commander Adama about a dream he had involving legendary colonial pilot Starbuck. In the dream Starbuck crashes on a planet after his ship is shot down by a cylon raider. On the planet Starbuck finds utter boredom and loneliness. He finally takes it upon himself to repair one of the Cylon robots that piloted the ship that shot him down. After much work and luck he wires one to work. Upon activation the Cylon calls Starbuck an enemy and has to be deactivated. Upon reactivation the Cylon wonders why it was reactivated and starts to give Starbuck a time to explain without trying to kill him. The Cylon and Starbuck become friends of sorts. The cylon exclaims that their members are grown whole and that humanity should do the same as its much more efficient than birth and the whole growing up process. Finally a Cylon rescue crew arrives in search of their crashed comrade. Upon finding a human Starbuck they attempt to kill him with Cylon laser pistols but Starbuck's Cylon buddy kills his own robotic kind to save Starbuck. This is the best episode from the Galactica 80 series. Its too bad the series ended after this, but all the other episodes really were bad. This final episode in a way represents the storyline of a machine protector that the legendary Terminator 2 Movie was all about more than 11 years later.
