101 Episode

Train 23 explodes.

It is not known if Stark acted alone or under orders from someone higher up in the monotheistic cult. Clarice Willow tells Lacy Rand that Ben did something premature. Ben's best friend, Keon Gatwick, built the parts used for the bomb, but he did not know Ben was going to use them to blow up the train. Barnabas Greeley, the leader of a more violent STO cell in Caprica City, has knowledge of these events and may have given the order. ("Pilot") ("Know Thy Enemy")
