A special task force, mostly made up out of convicts, is dispatched to destroy a giant Cylon operated pulsar cannon on the planet Aracta directly in the Colonial Fleet's path. Having lost a cadet on the planet earlier, Starbuck is eager to join the expedition for once. Boxey and Muffit also join the group as stowaways.
