The Armistice Station Officer (also referred to as the "courier officer") is assigned to the Armistice Station, representing the Twelve Colonies in their long-dormant diplomatic relations with the exiled Cylons. He brings with him pictures his family, including a photo of his son Boxey, which he displays on the negotiation table.
The officer is the first member of the Colonial Fleet to see the Cylons in over 40 years when two upgraded Cylon Centurions arrive at the station. They are accompanied by what appears to be a strikingly beautiful woman, a Cylon evolved to humanoid form. While the Centurions stand at attention, the woman asks the Colonial officer, "Are you alive?" When he answers "Yes", she tells him to prove it, and kisses him.
A missile launches from a Cylon basestar and strikes, shaking the station. The woman announces, "It has begun," then continues to hold him down and kisses him again, preventing him from escaping back to his shuttle.
Fleet Headquarters sends a general message requesting the status of all FTL-capable ships when the courier officer is overdue coming back from Armistice Station, just in case they need someone to jump there and check on him. Commander Adama has Lieutenant Gaeta reply that they are too busy with the impending decommissioning ceremonies to help (Miniseries).
Unbeknownst to any human, the Armistice Officer is the first human to die during the Fall of the Twelve Colonies.
