|'The Return of Starbuck'
by Glen A. Larson
Doctor Zee tells Commander Adama about a dream he keeps having, which concerned a great warrior. Adama realises that he is describing Starbuck, who has been missing presumed dead after a Cylon attack fourteen years ago. Zee tells how Starbuck’s Viper crash-landed on a distant, deserted planet, where he discovered a crashed Cylon ship, its three occupants destroyed. However, the lonely Starbuck desired company, and so decided to rebuild one of the robots, which he christened Cy. After the unlikely pair became friends, a mysterious pregnant woman arrived, and soon gave birth to a baby boy. To save the child Starbuck and Cy combined the wreckages of their vessels to build a pod for him, which they then launched into space…
