Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x14: "Blood on the Scales"
That was great! And good riddance to Gaeta - but Zarek should just have been shot in the face out of hand, or quietly disappeared- unlike Gaeta he's not military so shouldn't qualify for courtmartial and the firing squad. It gives him too much honour.
I for one am not convinced that Roslin or Adama cared
about the legality of killing Zarek. I doubt that he or Gaeta got a trial -- they were probably both just sentenced to death by Adama after the coup failed.
