Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy

Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy is a ten-part series of webisodes that was broadcast in the mid-season break of season 4 of Battlestar Galactica. The episodes are between 3 and 6 minutes in length, with two released per week. The series was written by Jane Espenson and Seamus Kevin Fahey.


Nine days after discovering Earth (following "Revelations", i.e., episode 10 of the fourth season), Galactica and the fleet are back in space. Lt. Felix Gaeta is on board a Raptor with two Cylon number Eights ("Sweet Eight" and "Pilot Eight") and three other humans (Raptor crew "Easy" and "Shark", and deckhand mechanic Brooks) en route to the Zephyr when a DRADIS contact prompts the fleet to execute an emergency jump. A computer error results in the Raptor jumping to an unknown location beyond the Red Line. Stranded without a functioning FTL (Faster than Light) drive, those on board face the grim realization that they may run out of oxygen before they are rescued.
