Occupation is an episode of the TV series, Battlestar Galactica, and aired during the show's third season.


Tigh, Tyrol and Anders lead the Resistance on New Caprica, in the face of increasingly deadly attacks against the Cylons. Kara finds herself trapped in a new life with Leoben Conoy, and Duck makes a fateful decision. Meanwhile on Galactica, Adama struggles with the question of whether to return to New Caprica to mount a rescue attempt.


Occupation and Precipice were written side-by side as a single two-hour story which could be split into two in syndication. Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore wanted the New Caprica story to be concluded in fewer than five weeks, and Occupation and Precipice were as a result aired on the same day.[1]
