Starbuck looked down at him as he started up into space at something that no one else present in the room could see. She had noticed this many times before, but for some reason, now, it seemed a lot more important.
“I repent, I repent, I repent, I repent,” Baltar said over and over again. They had found him on a drifting Cylon Baseship with one of the Number Three, D’Anna and Number Six cylon models, the only two which they had found so far that hadn’t perished. It was thanks to Baltar that they hadn’t. After they released the virus on the Cylon resurrection ship, it spread like the plague throughout the entire Cylon civilization. They had effectively committed genocide against the Cylon race and corrected their creation. The only one, which they knew of, that had survived had been Athena, and that was due to the fact that she had carried a human child. Therefore, the Colonials were surprised to find a Number Three and a Number Six surviving. Cottle was examining them now. “I will tell you everything,” Baltar said to them, snapping out of his trance as he was strapped down to a table. Starbuck looked to Apollo, Admiral Adama, Tigh and Roslin. “I know where the human cylons originated,” Baltar said. “I know that they’ve been to Earth. I know the fate of the Lords of Kobol. I will tell you everything, if you just spare me,” Baltar said to them all.
“Very well then,” Laura Roslin, the president of the 12 Colonies said to Baltar. “Tell us where the Human Cylons came from.”
“They came from Earth. The Cylons, they found Earth,” Baltar replied. That got Starbuck’s undivided attention. “The humans, they were experimenting with genetic modification. Earth is relatively primitive, except for their genetics, they’ve made some amazing achievements. A branch of one of their nations governments were creating genetically engineered super soldiers. Humans which were stronger, faster and had better senses and could learn faster. I believe the organisation was called Multicore, or Manticore, or Manticare or something like that. Anyway, the Cylons broke into the facility and stole the information. From there, they analysed all of the organisations information and integrated computer components. Soon enough, they developed the method to grow organic computers, and organic organs… That’s pretty-much it,” Baltar said. Starbuck couldn’t believe her ears, the Cylons had already been to Earth.
“What about Earth? Have the Cylons destroyed it?” Admiral Adama asked. Baltar looked at him, with his eyes wide.
“Not that I’m aware of, No Admiral. Earth is still very much intact.”
