What we learn

It is 14 days since the attack on the colonies

A pilots 1000th landing is a big deal

There are rumours about Baltar (and Gaeta) building a Cylon detector

Starbuck and Adama have served together for two years

Plot Discrepancies

People must have known that Starbuck and Zak Adama were in a relationship, yet they allowed her to be his flight instructor? If Zak was that concerned about not getting special treatment surely he should have asked for a different teacher or at least asked for a different person to test him. Given that is has been shown in Bastille Day that military fraternization is frowned upon, this relationship should surely fall into this category
