Troy and Dillon are teaching some of the children raised on the Galactica about what they can expect on Earth if and when they get to go there. But when their vessel is attacked by the Cylons, they escape. But because they can't make it back to the Galactica, they decide to land on Earth. So they try to make the children appear to be like children on Earth. They dress them as scouts and Troy and Dillon pretend to be scout masters. Their landing is detected by the Air Force, so a Colonel shows up to investigate.

Lieutenant Dillon states that Galacticans live under higher gravity and a denser atmosphere compared to Earth, warning the Galactican children that they may experience significant changes if and when they land on Earth. However, in the previous three episodes, Jamie Hamilton (a reporter from Earth), is brought aboard the Galactica several times and never expresses any distress from increased atmospheric pressure or higher gravity, something she would not have been used to.
Either this detail was overlooked or the differences between Galactican and Earth habitats are exaggerated by Dillon (which means the children would not have been able to perform acrobatic feats from a slight difference in gravity). See more
