Additional Information

Captain Bannister is an officer in the United States Air Force circa 1980 CE.

Bannister reports to Colonel Jack Sydell that they've found nothing of the alleged craft that landed the night before. He does tell them of an encampment of Boy Scouts one meadow over, which Sydell investigates (1980: "The Super Scouts, Part I").


  • The restoration effort that lead to the blu-ray release of Galactica 1980 revealed this character's name on the blue name tag, as previous releases obscured the text due to their lower resolution.
