Peter Laird was aboard the Scylla and acted as the ship's spokesperson in conversations with Colonel Fisk and Lieutenant Shaw. After informing the passengers about Admiral Cain's intentions to strip the ships of their resources, he and the passengers initially refused and became agitated; in part because taking the ships' FTL drives would leave them dead in space, and because all of them traveled with their families. When Cain heard of the civilians' resistance, she ordered Fisk to shoot the families of the people to be recruited, who in return started to attack the Marines. The standoff was ended by Shaw by shooting a woman in the head—an act that Cain believed to make Shaw a "razor". Shaw's action resulted in the deaths of nine other civilians after Pegasus Marines massacred them, among them being two families of the selectees.
After the civilian uprising was put down, Laird and other selectees from the Scylla and other ships were quickly drafted into Colonial service by Cain and stationed aboard Pegasus. The Scylla was left for dead after being abandoned and stripped of parts by the Pegasus crew. Thus, the ship is believed to be destroyed by the Cylons ("Pegasus", "Razor").
