Alan Hughes is Gaius Baltar's first lawyer, hailing from Zephyr.

He is responsible for sneaking the pages of Baltar's manifesto, My Triumphs, My Mistakes, off Galactica and disseminating them to the Fleet's population.

Cally Tyrol describes Hughes as a "snazzy high-priced lawyer". He appears to be something of a flirt, making a pass at Margaret "Racetrack" Edmondson before boarding her Raptor.

In addition to his flirting, many of Hughes's quirks annoy Racetrack, which include whispering in her ear while she has her helmet on and taking off his shoes during flight.

Even Baltar did not hold his defender in high esteem, claiming that all "that bloke did apart from napping was, you know, manage to smuggle out my papers".

Hughes is killed when a bomb explodes under his seat in the Raptor meant to shuttle him back to Zephyr. His killer is later identified as Galactica Landing Signal Officer Captain Aaron Kelly.

After his death, Hughes is hastily replaced by public defender Romo Lampkin as Baltar's attorney (TRS: "The Son Also Rises").
