Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The treacherous Baltar (John Colicos) joins forces with several captured villains from earlier episodes -- the three Borellian Nomens, the Eastern Alliance Enforcers -- to plot an escape from the Colonials' prison. Holding Adama (Lorne Greene) and the Council of Twelve hostage, Baltar demands that he and his new cronies be immediately released. To rescue their comrades, Apollo (Richard Hatch) and Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) disguise themselves as Cylon robots. "Baltar's Escape" was later combined with the Battlestar Galactica episode "The Man With Nine Lives" and reissued as the two-hour "TV movie" Space Prison.
