Ten days after the attack on the Colonies, Conoy had managed to crack the military wireless transmissions. Seventeen days after the attacks, shortly after the announcement that Cylons look like humans, two marines were handing pictures of Aaron Doral and Leoben to passengers onboard. After overhearing the marines, Leoben passed two civilians who then ran into the marines and said they just saw him. Conoy was forced into hiding.
Twenty-four days after the attacks, Leoben had conversed with Brother Cavil about his belief in Kara Thrace following the capture of a Cylon Raider eight days earlier. The conversation was cut short when Conoy was captured.
Twenty-five days after the attacks, the captain of the Gemenon Traveler contacted President Laura Roslin about Conoy. She then ordered Commander William Adama to send Lieutenant Thrace to subsequently interrogate the Cylon, who was soon executed (TRS: "Flesh and Bone").
The ship was first named in production for vessels that eventually became Kimba Huta (TRS: "The Farm") and Thera Sita (TRS: "The Passage"). But when "Flesh and Bone" was released, the Gemenon Traveler was redesigned with a greenish hull and the engines where grafted to the hull. It had not made another appearance throughout the entire series until "The Plan".
Ships of this design were also used by the Colonial Fleet during the First Cylon War, being used to ferry recruits to their deployments aboard battlestars like Galactica.
