Margaret Edmondson is a fictional character in the television series Battlestar Galactica, portrayed by actress Leah Cairns. Racetrack is a lieutenant assigned to the Battlestar Galactica, piloting Raptors and "backseating" as an Electronic Countermeasures Officer, she first appears in "Kobol's Last Gleaming, part two" as Sharon "Boomer" Valerii's ECO, becoming the first human to see the inside of a Cylon Basestar. On their return, she is a witness first to Boomer's attempted assassination of Adama and of Cally's successful assassination of Boomer. In between these events, she is instrumental in Lee Adama's plan to jailbreak Laura Roslin. During this phase of the show, Racetrack is and visibly more traumatized and wounded than the rest of the crew. Racetrack is a witness to the arrival of Adm. Helena Cain and the Battlestar Pegasus before we see her volunteering for a risky SAR to Caprica. On the first jump, a computer error sends her Raptor to the wrong coordinates. Presidential candidate Gaius Baltar makes colonization of this planet an issue in the election, after his victory, settlement of the planet, now named New Caprica, begins.
Many crew members settle. When the Cylons locate and occupy the planet a year Racetrack is part of Galactica's remaining skeleton crew, leads the Raptor mission to draw the Cylon forces away from New Caprica while Galactica covers the civilians' escape. With the Pegasus destroyed in the escape from New Caprica, the combined air wing embarked on the Galactica has an excess of qualified pilots. Desperate to keep up her flying hours, Racetrack volunteers to serve as Sharon "Athena" Agathon's ECO reclaiming a Raptor of her own. During this period, she has repeated close-calls with death both from equipment malfunctions and assassination attempts on people in that she is tasked to transport. At the end of season three, she seems to have won some personal respite, until one, last split-second escape in "Crossroads, part one." In "Crossroads, part two," there is a harsh, brittle edge to her, by "Escape Velocity" and "The Hub"—in which she becomes the first human to have eyes on the eponymous facility—catatonia seems to be setting in.
When Felix Gaeta instigates a mutiny against Adama and her co-pilot Hamish "Skulls" McCall side with the mutineers, are detained. But when Adama calls for volunteers for a dangerous recon mission to locate the Cylon's home base, "The Colony," Racetrack volunteers, she succeeds, becoming the first human to see it, allowing Adama to plan an assault on the facility, but is killed in action during that assault after arming her weapons. Soon thereafter, at a critical moment of events, an asteroid bumps into the Raptor, Racetrack's hand slips onto the launch button, firing the Raptor's nukes. In "The Woman King," Charlie Connor—a resistance fighter on New Caprica turned barman in the pilots' lounge–refers to Racetrack as "Marge." He and Edmondson appear to have a fractious relationship.

President Richard Adar is a fictional character in the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, portrayed by Colm Feore. He was President of the Twelve Colonies before the Destruction of the Twelve Colonies by the Cylons. In the Miniseries, Adar was portrayed in a still picture in Doctor Gaius Baltar's house by producer David Eick in age-enhancing make-up. In the 2003 version of Battlestar Galactica, President Richard Adar had just entered the last year of his second term as President of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol before the Cylon destruction of humanity. Before being elected President, he was a mayor. Many of his staff of his second administration continued on from his first, a few remained with him from his days as mayor. What little is known about his terms in office indicate that he favored authoritarian, hardline solutions to problems such as union strikes, that at least one of these incidents led to numerous civilian deaths. Commander William Adama considered him "a moron", his status was unknown until near the end of the bombardment, when his death was announced to the Colonial Fleet.
Adar appeared in a second-season episode of the show, in which it was revealed that he was having an extramarital affair with Roslin. Richard Adar at Battlestar Wiki
Admiral Helena Cain is a fictional character from the science fiction television series Battlestar Galactica. The character is portrayed by Michelle Forbes; as a 9-year-old girl on her home colony of Tauron, Helena witnessed her parents' deaths during a Cylon attack in the first Cylon War. She fled with her sister, but the younger sibling stumbled in the rubble. Too injured to continue, Lucy pleaded for help from her older sister, but Helena froze and, seeing a Cylon landing party, ran away and hid in a nearby storage container, she was discovered there by a 0005 Centurion sentry. As it targeted her, she prepared to defend herself. Before the Centurion could strike, however, it received orders to depart, as a treaty had been signed. Now safe, Helena returned to where the younger girl was missing. Only her doll remained. Looking into the sky, she sees a Cylon ship depart, it becomes clear that her sister has been taken for what can only be presumed is further experimentation towards creating a human cylon hybrid.
In the aftermath, Helena vowed to do whatever it took to survive, hence leading her to become a "Razor". Cain made a name for herself as an ambitious officer in the Colonial Fleet, she was something of a rising star with strong political connections: Commander William Adama remarks to President Laura Roslin that she was promoted "to Rear Admiral over half the Commanders on the list". Prior to the destruction of the Twelve Colonies, Cain's flagship, the Battlestar Pegasus, was docked at the Scorpion Fleet Shipyards for a major refit; the refit team included a civilian network analyst, Gina Inviere, with whom Cain began a relationship. At the time of the attack, Admiral Cain, like many of her crew, was preparing to leave the ship on shore leave; the initial Cylon strike destroyed five Colonial vessels in Pegasus' immediate vicinity and damaged the Pegasus herself, killing 700 crew members. In a desperate gamble, Admiral Cain ordered a "blind jump" that took the Pegasus out of the combat zone. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, Cain addressed her crew, promising revenge against the Cylons through a guerrilla-style war.
Among her inner circle, she said she was not willing to foolishly risk lives in the pursuit of vengeance. During the attack, Cain became impressed by the fortitude of her new aide, a young, impressionable officer named Kendra Shaw, took the young woman under her wing, giving her the knife she found as a child. Shaw worked with Gina to restore the Pegasus computers, they discovered a Cylon communications relay nearby. Cain ordered a surprise attack. After jumping into range of the relay, a fleet of Cylon Raiders attacked Pegasus. Pegasus executive officer Commander Jurgen Belzen suspected that the Cylon relay was a trap and suggested a strategic retreat. Belzen's suspicions soon proved to be correct. However, Cain doubted his judgment, instead preferring to launch a full counterstrike, hoping it would catch the Cylons by surprise; this strategy did not work out at all. When Belzen questioned Cain's decision and refused to carry out her foolish order to continue with the attack Cain ordered Commander Belzen to hand over his sidearm.
He reluctantly handed over his pistol, Cain shot him in the head with it. She appointed Colonel Jack Fisk as executive officer and ordered him to launch the attack. Shocked by Belzen's execution, Fisk agreed to carry out the order; the Cylons managed to board the Pegasus during the attack, leading to the discovery of Gina as a Cylon agent. With this betrayal, heightened by her relationship with a Cylon infiltrator, Cain ordered Lt. Alastair Thorne to brutally interrogate the prisoner. Pegasus found 15 refugee civilian ships, but rather than protect them like Galactica did, Admiral Cain unscrupulously opted to strip these civilian vessels of any useful parts and supplies, draft any civilians who had valuable technical experience into her crew, leave the remaining civilians aboard their ships defenseless and at the mercy of the Cylons. If any civilians refused to join the Pegasus crew, Cain ordered. Overall, two families were killed under her orders. Six months after the Cylon holocaust, Pegasus was tracking a Cylon fleet when it accidentally encountered Galactica and her civilian ships.
Taking over from Commander Adama as military commander of the fleet, Admiral Cain arranges for Galactica's stores to be replenished from Pegasus's own, but neglects the civilian fleet, ignoring President Laura Roslin's requests on their behalf. Cain's chief military objective became identifying a mysterious Cylon vessel sighted in the fleet pursuing Galactica. Cain gives Dr. Gaius Baltar access to Gina to continue the interrogation and learn more about the ship, identified as a Cylon Resurrection ship; the strategic value of knocking out the Cylons' means of avoiding death is not lost on the Colonial military commanders, so Pegasus and Galactica plan a joint operation to engage the Cylon fleet and destroy the Resurrection ship. Concurrently with this operation, Admiral Cain and Commander Adama come into conflict over the treatment of two Galactica crew members, Lt. Karl Agathon and Chief Galen Tyrol. Admiral Cain sentences the pair to death for the accidental manslaughter of a Pegasus officer.
Cain and Adama come to the brink of firing on one another's vessels before standing down and agreeing to postpone their disagreements until the Resurrection ship has been destroyed. Nonetheless, each makes plans to have the ot
Richard Hatch (actor)
Richard Lawrence Hatch was an American actor and producer. Hatch began his career before moving on to television work in the 1970s. Hatch is best known for his role as Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica television series, he is widely known for his role as Tom Zarek in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. Hatch was born on May 21, 1945 in Santa Monica, California to John Raymond Hatch and Elizabeth Hatch, he grew up with 4 siblings. While in high school, he aspired to become an athlete in pole vaulting, only had a passing interest in acting, as he considered himself too shy and insecure; the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, while Hatch had just started college, turned him towards acting. I was expressing feelings and emotions I tended to keep locked inside of myself." Hatch began his theatrical career with the Los Angeles Repertory Theater, as well as shows in Chicago and Off-Broadway. Hatch began working in television in 1970 when he starred as Philip Brent in the daytime soap opera All My Children, a role he played for two years.
In the following years, he made guest appearances in prime time series such as Cannon. In 1976, Hatch gained his first major television role as Inspector Dan Robbins on the detective series The Streets of San Francisco, as the replacement for Michael Douglas, who had acted Inspector Steve Keller in the series, but had resigned from the cast that year. Though the role was for only one season, Hatch won Germany's Bravo Youth Magazine Award for the role. Following this, he had a recurring role on the series Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman for one season. In 1978, Hatch gained a starring role in Glen A. Larson's sci-fi series, Battlestar Galactica, which aired for a single season before its high cost motivated its cancellation by ABC-TV. Hatch was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the role. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Hatch made guest appearances on such series as Hotel. In 1990, Hatch appeared on Santa Barbara. Originating the character Steven Slade. In 2013, Hatch made a guest appearance in an adult-oriented episode of The Eric Andre Show on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
Hatch made several low-key theatrical film releases, including Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen and Prisoners of the Lost Universe. An abridged version of the pilot episode of Battlestar Galactica was released in cinemas overseas and for a limited run in the U. S. as was a sequel film, Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack, made from episodes of the series. He starred with Leif Garrett with Arte Johnson in Second Chance. In the 1990s, Hatch attempted to revive Battlestar Galactica, he began writing novels based on the series, wrote, co-directed and executive-produced a trailer called Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming in the hopes of enticing Universal Studios - the rights holders for the franchise, into producing a new series. Hatch's series would have been a direct continuation of the original 1978 series, would have ignored the events of the failed spin-off Galactica 1980, in which Hatch had not appeared. Original actors John Colicos, Terry Carter and Jack Stauffer appeared in the trailer with Hatch.
Though the trailer won acclaim at science-fiction conventions, Universal was not interested in Hatch's vision for the revival of Battlestar Galactica, instead opted for a remake rather than the sequel for which Hatch had campaigned. Hatch, who had remortgaged his own house to produce the trailer, was bitterly disappointed by this turn of events and was critical of the prospective new series. In 2004, he stated to Sci-Fi Pulse that he had felt resentment over the failure of his planned Galactica continuation and was left "exhausted and sick... I had, over the past several years, bonded with the original characters and story... writing the novels and the comic books and campaigning to bring back the show." Despite his resentment, Hatch developed a respect for Ronald D. Moore, the remake show's head writer and producer, when Moore appeared as a featured guest at Galacticon and answered questions posed by a hostile audience. In 2004, Hatch was offered a recurring role in the new Battlestar Galactica series, which he accepted.
He portrayed Tom Zarek, a terrorist turned politician who spent twenty years in prison for blowing up a government building. After Zarek's death, Hatch commented that "never did I play this character as a villain nor did I think he was one and I still feel that way," and that he considered the character to be a principled figure, driven to violence after being "blocked in every way possible" by Roslin and Adama. "Zarek and Roslin all wanted power for the same reason, to make a positive difference." Alongside his attempts to revive the original Battlestar Galactica, Hatch created trailer for his own space opera ent
Samuel T. Anders
Samuel T. Anders is a fictional character from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television series, played by Michael Trucco, he first appeared as a recurring character in the second-season episode "Resistance", but assumed a pivotal role in the series by the end. Although not revealed until the final season of the show, Anders is two thousand years old, was born as a member of the ill-fated Thirteenth Tribe, a group consisting of Cylons who left Kobol and settled on the first Earth. Along with fellow Cylons Saul Tigh, Ellen Tigh, Galen Tyrol and Tory Foster, Anders worked as part of a research group on Resurrection technology, they were warned about a coming disaster by people. The messenger that appeared to Anders looked like a woman; when their Earth was destroyed, the five Cylons were resurrected on a subluminal ship in orbit, traveled to the Twelve Colonies at sub-lightspeed, stopping at the temple of the five on algae planet and arriving at the time of the First Cylon War. Seeking to end the conflict, the five Earth Cylons presented the Colonial Cylon forces with a deal — if the warring Centurions called off the war, the five would teach them to create humanoid Cylon models, give them Resurrection technology.
The Centurions agreed, departed from Colonial space along with Anders and his cohorts, but their efforts backfired. The first humanoid Cylon created, John Cavil known as Number One, was incensed that he had been created with so many human weaknesses, turned on his creators, he killed them, arranging it that they would be resurrected with no memory of who they were, inserted them into Colonial society with false memories in order to give them a plausible background-cover. When Anders arrived on Caprica is unrevealed, but he became involved in the popular Colonial sport of Pyramid, becoming a star player for the Caprica Buccaneers; when the Cylon attack on the Colonies came and his team were undergoing high altitude training in the mountains and thus escaped the initial devastation. Anders muttered that "this has all happened before." Rounding up other survivors and weapons, the team, with Anders as their leader, became the nucleus of a functioning resistance group against the Cylon occupation, operating from a wilderness base in the vicinity of the city of Delphi.
Everyone looked to Anders for leadership including the coach and he wasn't aware that he ended up with two Cylons in his resistance movement: a Simon and a Cavil who grew sympathetic towards humanity due to his time in the Resistance. It was in the area of their base that they encountered Lieutenant Kara Thrace and Karl Agathon during the events of the episode "Resistance" after Thrace returned to Caprica to retrieve the Arrow of Apollo on the orders of President Laura Roslin. Anders and his team ambushed them after being told by Cavil. Thrace and Anders swiftly form a relationship and, when she has to return to the Fleet, she promises him that she will return to Caprica and rescue his group, she secures this promise by giving Anders her fleet dogtags. However, President Roslin and Commander Adama deny Starbuck's request to lead a search and rescue mission back to Caprica, stating the situation is too dangerous. Meanwhile, Anders's team struggle to continue their attacks on the Cylons. In the episode "Downloaded", during a sabotage mission, Anders is caught in the rubble of a parking structure where he encounters the Cylons Caprica Six, Sharon "Boomer" Valerii along with a Number Three copy.
The Three attempts to kill Anders, but Caprica Six and Valerii, having decided to sympathize with the human cause, turn against Three and allow Anders to escape. During the episodes "Lay Down Your Burdens", Parts I and II, Thrace is given the go-ahead to lead a group of Raptors to Caprica and gather the survivors. Once found, Anders's team comes under attack by Cylon Centurions who discover their encampment and drive them out, forcing the outnumbered resistance group deep into the wilderness where they take cover in a ravine. After an unsettling 18-hour standoff, the team discovers the Cylons have withdrawn from the area. A mysterious survivor among the group, announces. Once at the fleet and Thrace begin a proper relationship which causes torn feelings for Lee Adama. During the year that passes after settling on New Caprica and Anders marry and the two live in a tent in the ramshackle "New Caprica City" under the neglectful authority of President Gaius Baltar. Anders becomes ill with pneumonia at one point, but makes a full recovery.
After the Cylons invade New Caprica at the end of the second season, Starbuck is taken into custody by the Cylon Leoben Conoy, Anders once again finds himself as one of the leaders of the resistance against a Cylon occupation as seen at the beginning of the third season. Following the escape from New Caprica, the episode "Collaborators" sees Anders becoming one of the six members of the Circle, a Star Chamber like group commissioned by the newly sworn in President Tom Zarek to try and execute Cylon collaborators. After thirteen such executions, Anders quits The Circle, having lost his taste for revenge, is replaced by his wife as a new member. Anders and Thrace subsequently quarrel, which exposes numerous deep rifts that had emerged in their marriage and the two separate. Midway through the series’ third season and Thrace try to reconcile their marriage, but Thrace's growing love for Lee Adama makes things difficult. In the episode "
William "Bill" Adama is a fictional character portrayed by Edward James Olmos in the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television series produced and aired by the SyFy cable network. He is one of the main characters, a reimagining of Commander Adama from the 1978 Battlestar Galactica series played by Lorne Greene. In the Caprica spinoff series, Markus Towfigh plays William "Bill" Adama as a young boy. Adama was born on the son of Joseph Adama and Joseph's second wife, Evelyn Adama. Though he's raised on Caprica, he states that he was a fan of the Picon Panthers, he is named in honor of his deceased older half-brother William "Willie" Adama in accord with Tauron tradition. Both were named after their grandfather, who along with their grandmother Isabelle was killed during the Tauron Uprising. Bill was the only child of Joseph and Evelyn, though he is Joseph's third child, a half-brother to Joseph's children Tamara and Willie with his first wife Shannon, who died in the year YR42 on the Colonial calendar.
Bill Adama had at least three uncles: Joseph's brother Sam Adama, Sam's husband Larry, Evelyn's brother on Tauron who owned a ranch near a river and used trained dogs to drive foxes into the river. Shannon Adama's mother Ruth was part of the Adama family during Bill's childhood, though not related to him by blood. Admiral Adama's Military service record is shown in the dossier prepared by Billy Keikeya in the episode "Hero", it listed the following events in his service history: D6/21311 – First commission: Battlestar Galactica air group E4/21312 – Commendation for shooting down Cylon fighter in first viper combat mission D5/21314 – Mustered out of service post-armistice R6/21317 – Served as Deck Hand in merchant fleet and as common aboard inter-colony tramp freighters D1/21331 – Recommissioned in Colonial Fleet D6/21337 – Major: Battlestar Atlantia R8/21341 – Executive Officer: Battlestar Columbia C2/21345 – Commander: Commanding Officer, Battlestar Valkyrie C2/21348 – Commander: Commanding Officer, Battlestar GalacticaAfter the death of Admiral Helena Cain, Adama is promoted to Admiral, in light of the fact that he now had charge of more than one battlestar.
He retains the rank. As depicted in Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, in the tenth year of the First Cylon War, Adama, is a new Academy graduate, assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica, his aviator call sign was "Husker" bestowed on him by his copilot Coker Fasjovik, using an Aerilon term for farmboy or hick, though Adama was raised in Caprica City. His first mission is to pilot a Raptor, taking a civilian software engineer into hostile Cylon territory. Following that mission, he was assigned a Viper and assigned to a joint special ops unit of fighter pilots and marines. In Battlestar Galactica: Razor Flashbacks, Adama becomes involved with a Raptor pilot named Jaycie McGavin. Arriving on the hangar deck for his first Viper combat mission, he found McGavin had been mortally wounded in combat due to her Raptor's control console exploding, he received a commendation for this mission. Adama was aboard the Galactica during the last week of the war when a Cylon boarding party attempted to kill the crew by depressurizing the ship.
Adama recalled that "two thousand men bought the farm."During a battle that took place on the last day of the First Cylon War, Adama became enraged by the destruction of the Battlestar Columbia and pursued two Cylon raiders into a planetary atmosphere. His Viper was damaged in a collision and he was forced to eject. Upon landing, he discovered a Cylon lab. Unable to rescue the humans held captive in the lab, Adama watched helplessly as the Cylons evacuated the base; when he called radioed for rescue, he was told. With the hostilities at an end, the Cylons carried away. After the war ended, Adama married his wife Carolanne Adama and fathered two sons with her: Zak and Lee. Adama relates to Captain Louanne "Kat" Katraine how, during both her pregnancies, Carolanne was convinced that she was carrying a daughter, was surprised by the arrival of a son. Adama himself would have liked a daughter, saying that "three's a good round number". Like many servicemen Adama was released from military career, he found himself serving on a commercial freighter on the Caprica-Tauron run, where he met a fellow former Viper pilot, Saul Tigh.
The pair forged a lasting friendship. During this period, Adama used his wife's family's connections in the Defense Council to get himself reinstated in the Colonial Fleet with a rank of Captain. Once he had been promoted to the rank of Major, he secured Tigh's reinstatement in the Fleet as well, he divorced Carolanne. As a Major, Adama served on the Battlestar Atlantia, where he had an ongoing feud with the ship's landing signal officer that inspired a celebration of his thousandth landing, he served as the executive officer of the Battlestar Columbia as a Colonel, skippered three Colonial escort vessels before earning his own command, the Battlestar Valkyrie. Adama brought his old friend, Saul Tigh, with him as his XO. At some point during this phase of his career, Adama either served aboard or visited a Mercury class bat
Commander Cain is a fictional character in the original Battlestar Galactica science fiction TV series, portrayed by the American actor Lloyd Bridges. Commander Cain is the commander of the battlestar Pegasus, the father of Lieutenant Sheba, a former lover of Cassiopeia, he is one of the greatest heroes in the Colonial Service. However, he is known to be rather impulsive and a maverick, he inspires near-fanatical loyalty amongst his crew on the Pegasus. Under his command, the Pegasus sortied to defend a human ally world, out of contact with the Twelve Colonies, with an expeditionary force, destroyed by the Cylons. Cain appears in the original series two-part episode, "The Living Legend," where the Pegasus meets up with the Galactica, under the command of Commander Adama, its refugee fleet. After a joyous reunion, Commander Cain's hope for an offensive against the Cylons is dashed: Although the Galactica and her fleet are suffering from critical and immediate fuel shortage, Commander Adama allows only a small raid against a Cylon tanker convoy.
Cain desires much more and proposes the two battlestars attack the planet Gamoray to capture all the fuel stores of the enemy on the planet. But Adama, more concerned with his quest for Earth and the protection of the refugees, refuses to agree to Cain's reckless plan; when Cain succeeds in deliberately interfering with the fuel raid to force the attack on Gamoray, Adama comes up with a last and most desperate plan: To distribute the Pegasus's fuel reserves amongst the refugee fleet in order to sneak away from the planet. The plan is desperate as the Pegasus does not have enough fuel to supply the entire fleet and Adama has no idea where to find any other reserves; as Cain opposes Adama's plan publicly, Adama relieves Cain of his duties as Commander of the Pegasus. Cain's successor as authority of the Pegasus, Colonel Tigh, is ordered by Adama to distribute the Pegasus's fuel reserves amongst the refugee fleet as fast as possible; the Pegasus crew members nearly mutiny at the treatment of Cain.
Despite this, Cain refuses to support their insurrection and explicitly accepts Adama's superior rank, but the fleet is still perilously close to civil war. Count Baltar attacks with a large force of Cylons to destroy the Galactica and interrupts the colonial dispute in the face of the common enemy. Adama restores Cain to his command of the Pegasus, while Cain concedes that the refugee fleet would have been helpless at that moment had his offensive been carried out. Although outnumbered, the commanders decide on a pincer movement where the Galactica occupies Baltar's attention while Pegasus maneuvers around for a surprise attack. In the ensuing engagement, the Galactica suffers heavy damage, its landing bays are crippled to prevent its Vipers from refueling. Just as Baltar expects the battlestar to fall, the Pegasus, having completed its flanking maneuver, now makes its attack run with its Viper complement deployed to relieve the sister ship and the traitor is caught off guard. Stunned with the unexpected appearance of a second battlestar bearing down on him and alarmed by its fresh reinforcements about to engage his depleted forces, Baltar orders a retreat.
Cain convinces Adama to get the permission for a near-suicidal attack on a trio of Cylon base stars. In the ensuing battle, the Cylons are destroyed and Cain and his ship as well, although nobody is able to determine their fate: Although they are both eye-witnesses to the battle and Starbuck see only explosions and clouds of debris from the battle that are too intense to determine what happened to the Pegasus. In the two part episode "War Of The Gods," the evil Count Iblis promises Cain's daughter Lieutenant Sheba a re-union with her father Cain; this may be seen as a hint for the survival of the Pegasus. But it is possible that Count Iblis lied. Cain subsequently appears in series star Richard Hatch's re-launch novel series, having led the Pegasus to a planet where he and his surviving crew founded a new colony and began construction of two new battlestars and were preparing to resume the war with the Cylons, he appears in the Maximum Press Battlestar Galactica comic book series. Due to image licensing restrictions, he bears no resemblance to Lloyd Bridges.
Cain was featured in the second Battlestar Galactica film Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack, a feature-length release edited from the series episodes "The Living Legend" and "Fire in Space". Despite some changes in the story line, the film only contained archive footage from the TV series. Glen A. Larson and producer of Battlestar Galactica, attempted a revival in the late 1990s with a feature film project that would have featured Commander Cain and the Battlestar Pegasus. However, Larson's planned film never went into production; the character of Cain was included in several episodes of the remake of Battlestar Galactica, as was the storyline where the Galactica meets the Pegasus. In the remake, the character is Admiral Helena Cain, Commander Adama's superior officer, is portrayed by the actress Michelle Forbes.
