2 "Lost Planet of the Gods, Part I" September 24, 1978 50204

Marooned on a frontier planet, Apollo befriends a young widow and her son, rallying a town against "Red Eye"— a likewise marooned, yet memory-damaged, Cylon centurion gunslinger. The storyline is very much reminiscent of the classic western Shane

7 "Gun on Ice Planet Zero, Part II" October 29, 1978 50207

8 "The Magnificent Warriors" November 12, 1978 50912

The Galactica is rammed by Cylon Raiders making suicide runs on the main bridge and a landing bay. With Adama lying critically ill, Boomer and Athena lead a group of survivors in the rejuvenation center, with more than a little help from Boxey's daggit Muffy.

15 "The Man With Nine Lives" January 28, 1979 50916

A human sleeper ship found drifting in space is brought aboard the Galactica, leading to argument and debate on whether to awaken its occupants. Their ship is eventually escorted by Apollo, Starbuck, and Cassiopeia to the planet Paradeen — embroiled in a bitter war with the Eastern Alliance.

Exposing a plan by the devious president, Apollo has Starbuck warn the Galactica, which uses its laser cannon to destroy all the ballistic missiles avoiding planetary holocaust. 
20 "Take the Celestra" April 1, 1979 50929
When Starbuck encounters his long-lost love Aurora, she complicates matters by taking part in a mutinous rebellion aboard the Celestra. Her rebellion, undertaken for a noble cause, is soon overshadowed by a sinister mutiny by Charka, the Celestra's power-hungry second-in-command.

6 "Spaceball" March 30, 1980 1.6
It turns out Twelve Colonies had much higher gravity than earth - a fact never disclosed until now - and so the orphans from the previous two episodes use their superhuman strenghts as ringers in a children's baseball game. Really!
