- For the canonical depiction of this character, see: Starbuck (TOS).
Apollo is one of the remaining skilled Colonial Warriors surviving the Battle of Cimtar, and ace Viper pilot serving aboard the last known battlestar, Galactica in 7342.
Following the death of his brother, Zac, Apollo becomes the only surviving son of Adama and Ila, as well as the lead Warrior aboard.
The Lull Between
In the 18 yahren following the Battle at Galaxy's Edge, Apollo sees his adopted son, Troy ("Boxey") grow into a Colonial Warrior. Despite his relationship with Sheba, Apollo does not marry her during this time, instead focusing on his own development and obligations as a defender of the human remnants (RH: Armageddon).
After losing Starbuck in a patrol of Binary 13, as well as Adama's passing due to natural causes, Apollo's future became uncertain. Whereas command of both Galactica and The Fleet were concerned, Apollo found himself facing various political threats due to the machinations of not only Ambassador Puck but also the Gemon Matriarchs, who advocated the ascension of his sister Athena as future commander (RH: Armageddon).
