BSG: The Return To Kobol Part 1 . .
Previously on Battlestar Galactica:
"This is the Commander. We're about to embark on the greatest journey mankind has ever made...You've trained for this, you're ready for this..."
Galactica and the Rebel Cylon Baseship, Kobol orbit.
Maverick: "And with the whole Price in Blood thing, we'll bring down a Marine squad first, before we take any of the Civies or film crews..."
Colonel Watchko: "We don't want any 'a them gettin' underfoot and tripin' off some friggin' antique Cylon booby trap!"
"I see the City of the Gods on DRADIS...Okay team, I hope you've got your seat belts on!"
Raptor 269 on the surface of Kobol.
Commander L. Barto, call sign Maverick, CAG.
Lieutenant D. Boone, call sign Bones, Raptor ECO.
Marine Private C. Corthay, Sniper.
Marine Private T. Bonsch.
Marine Private T. Simon.
Maverick: "Alright, this is a good spot...We've got the City ruins ahead, and past that the mountains up to the Tomb of Athena."
"Kat will stay with the Raptor, we'll be on our own for a couple of days, from the looks of it. I'm sure she'll keep herself occupied..."
"But we need to be on our toes here, there's no tellin' what we'll be runnin' into. Let's move out!"
Pvt. Bonsch: "Wow, these must be really old!"
Lt. Boone: "Well duh, didn't you read the briefing? Smarten up and pay attention."
Pvt. Bonsch: "Yes, Sir, sorry, Sir..."
Maverick: "Okay, fan out..."
Pvt. Simon: "What's that...?"
Pvt. Corthay: "Ah, probably just the wind...Keep up, Dude!"
Maverick: "So much for our archaeological tour, now comes the real challenge. Eyes and ears, people, eyes and ears."
Lieutenant Boone: "Great to be outside, it's gettin' pretty rank on the ship..."
Pvt. Simon: "That's because Kat's in your bunk, Sir..."
Pvt. Bonsch: "Nice, that's how it is with the Raptor crews, LT?"
Maverick: "Stay sharp here, this is a great spot for an ambush..."
Pvt. Corthay: "I've got point, Sir"
Maverick: "Let's get to some higher ground, out of this ravine, and we'll make camp."
Pvt. Simon: "Awesome, I'm starving!"
Pvt. Bonsch: "Sir, I see a good spot. Time to fire up the Barbie!"
Lt. Boone: "This is a great...Too bad Kat had to stay with ol' 269..."
Pvt. Simon: "Maybe next time, Sir...You two can get your own private cave!"
Pvt. Bonsch: "Oh..That would be sweet..."
Lt. Boone: "Better than spending the night with Rosy!"
Pvt Corthay: "Ouch!"
Maverick: "This little trip reminds me of when I used to guide at Yosimite...Except instead of all you Goons, it was the UCLA girls volleyball team...But that's a long story..."
Private Corthay: "I'll take first watch, just save me something to eat, eh?"
Bones: "Mmmmm, smells good! What are we having, Commander?"
Maverick: "I don't know, the pack said Shifu Surprise, whatever the frak that is..."
Simon: "Uh, Pass the hot sauce, please."
The next day.
Private Simon: "Sir, I think we're almost there, but..."
Bones: "What is it? You see something, man?"
Simon: "There's something out there, Sir, but it ain't no man..."
Private Corthay: "Dude, What's that supposed to mean? I don't see anything."
Maverick: "Alright, alright, let's keep moving...Probably just a skunk or something..."
Marines: "Yes, Sir."
Bones: "Well, we have arrived at our destination...Not much to it..."
Bonsch: "At least they were nice enough to leave the door open for us..."
Maverick: "I hope none of you guys are afraid of spiders..."
Simon: "Uh, Sir?"
"I am Athena!"
"You have entered what you might understand as a Temporal Nexus, outside of space and time."
"I have watched over you and your wars from the beginning, first on Kobol, and then beyond!"
"You went on to create life again and again, but WE created you..."
"We have told you of the Circle of Time, and that "It has all happened before and it will all happen again...'"
"But you never understood the true meaning of the Phrase, or the Sacred Scrolls..."
"And what you do in this Odyssey will determine the fate of all living beings! I will be watching! Now go!"
Maverick: "Well then...Wait 'till they get a load of THIS!"
