After the three-hour epic premiere, "Saga of a Star World," writers Glen Larson and Donald Bellisario took the crew of the original BATTLESTAR GALACTICA to explore the mysteries of their ancestral home world of Kobol. On the long-lost planet, Commander Adama sought to find clues that would "lead the ragtag fugitive fleet" to that "shining planet known as Earth," while the treacherous Baltar schemed to steal the ancient planet's secrets for himself. In "Kobol's Last Gleaming", Ronald Moore once again cribs a concept from his predecessor but uses it to more mysterious and dramatic effect.

**snippity doo-dah**

Once again, this series has probed the depths of soul with close studies of what Hemingway named the stuff of drama: "the human heart in conflict with itself." Each of these characters is hurting in their own special way, and secrets are beginning to slip out of the shadows where they've hidden all season long. How will these revelations affect the characters and, more importantly, what will they lead to in season two?
