Battlestar Galactica Cast

Fleeing from the wrath of a trio of bloodthirsty Borellians, an old conman known as Chameleon manages to board a shuttle heading for the Galactica. The Borellians are seeking revenge after Chameleon pulled one of his con-tricks, and their ‘blood trail’ will only end when he is dead. Arriving on board the Galactica, Chameleon soon encounters Starbuck, and decides to elicit the pilot’s unwitting assistance in avoiding his pursuers; the old conman tells Starbuck that he may be his father, who has been missing since Starbuck's birth. Tests are carried out to determine the truth – and it seems that the tests may prove positive…
