Posted by Mister Random on July 14, 2008

Key Events

A New Quorum of 12 has been elected including Baltar and Tom Zarek

Gaius Baltar is elected VIce President of the 12 Colonies

On Caprica Helo discovers that Athena is a Cylon

What We Learn

It has been 47 days since the fall of the 12 colonies

It is possible for people to be elected without standing for nomination

Plot Discrepancies

How did Baltar not know he had been elected to the Quorum of 12?

Even allowing for the possibility of a write in ballot or automatic nomination given his prominence, it does seem doubtful that he would not be aware of his election until Starbuck told him. There is also a possible discrepancy in how the Quorum votes and what seat he was elected to given the later revelation he is from Aerilon in Series 3.
