"Six Degrees of Separation" is the seventh episode of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica television series.


When Dr. Baltar mocks the concept of gods, particularly Internal Six's belief in a single God, she vanishes from his head and a flesh-and-blood Number Six arrives. Calling herself Shelly Godfrey, she accuses Baltar of assisting in the Cylons attack on the human colonies and offers photographic evidence. Baltar is thrown into the brig.

While Lt. Gaeta conducts an analysis of the evidence, President Roslin reveals to Baltar that she is not surprised at the news of his treachery. Baltar then prays to the Cylon God for assistance as he has no wish to be executed as a traitor. Gaeta determines that Godfrey's evidence has been faked and Baltar is released. Internal Six returns to Baltar while Godfrey has somehow disappeared and Baltar speculates that Godfrey may have been a manifestation of his Internal Six all along.

On Caprica, Helo and the model Eight posing as Boomer hide in a forest. Helo uses the opportunity to confess his growing feelings for her and the two make love.
