Salty Nerd Reviews: Battlestar Galactica - Bastille Day (S1E3)

Battlestar Galactica season 1 episode 3 Bastille Day sees the return of the ORIGINAL Apollo, Richard Hatch!  

The fleet's water crisis is reaching critical levels and they need manual labor to help mine ice to replenish their supplies.  Lee Adama comes up with a solution to have the 1500 men who are incarcerated on a prison transport earn their freedom by doing the labor.  The only problem is that revolutionary William Zarek has organizes the prisoners and refuses to let them help the fleet.  Zarek's charisma has also won over the guards, and when the emissaries from Galactica are taken hostage, the situation has the potential to spiral out of control unless Apollo can figure out a way to appease Zarek, rescue the hostages, and get the prisoners agree to mine the ice the fleet needs to survive.
