Equellus is a low-tech planet in the Hatari Sector, similar in motif to the American West circa 1800s. Apollo crash lands on this planet after luring a Cylon task force away from the Fleet with false distress signals.
Prior to Apollo's landing on this planet, there was another battle with the Cylons some ten or more years prior, resulting in another Colonial Warrior named Martin crash-landing on Equellus. A Cylon Raider also crashed roughly nine yahrens prior, Equellus residents Lacerta, Marco, and Macy rescue a lone Cylon Centurion, Red-Eye, who terrorizes the residents on behalf of Lacerta, until Red-Eye is destroyed by Apollo (The Lost Warrior).
