Battlestar Galactica Cast

When the Colonial mining ship Majahual finds an asteroid with a rich seam of ore – enough to build two squadrons of Vipers – president Roslin assigns the Galactica to guard the miners from Cylon attack while the rest of the fleet moves on. However, hiding out in the rocks and dust of this solar system is ‘Scar’, a deadly Cylon Raider that is the reincarnation of countless Cylon warriors; a master of hit-and-run attacks, ‘Scar’ has decimated the Viper squadrons with its relentless assaults, forcing Starbuck to recruit inexperienced replacement pilots into her squadron. Faced with the mounting deaths of their fellows, the pilots turn to bravado and booze to get them through. It is not long before Starbuck finds herself clashing with Lieutenant Kat, who constantly challenges her superior’s judgement and abilities as a leader, and the two of them soon make a drunken bet to see which of them will kill Scar. As the number of casualties grows, Starbuck finds herself thinking of her lost lover, Anders, whom she left behind on Cylon-occupied Caprica; in an attempt to take the pain away, she sleeps with Apollo. After Kat and Starbuck’s arguments escalate into violence, Apollo teams them both up and sends them out on patrol. Out in the asteroid field, Starbuck and Kat are caught in an ambush by Scar – and when her vessel is hit, Starbuck flies her Viper headlong at the Cylon Raider in a suicidal game of ‘chicken’…
