Boomer is a former Warrior of the Colonial Empire during the Ovion Wars, serving alongside Flight-Lieutenant Starbuck during that time.

After the destruction of Carillion, Boomer becomes the recipient of Baltar's prosthetic technology, saving his life. Due to this, he is summarily exiled by the Quorum following Baltar's failed power grab, and quickly recaptured by Baltar for enslavement.

Alongside fellow exile Jolly, Boomer is kept aboard the aetherprison Proteus and tasked to mine ores for Baltar's weapons of mass destruction.

Following the destruction of Caprica by Baltar's Cylonics, Crown Prince Apollo is abducted and brought to Proteus, where Boomer and Jolly are both recruited to assist Apollo in his escape attempt with the promise of being reintegrated into the nobility of the Colonial Empire (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 1).

Eventually escaping from the prison planet Helia, Boomer participates in the attack on Gamoray by commandeering a Cylonic Centurion through the use of his prosthetics and uploading a trojan virus that wipes Iblis' transferred personality from the babbage computer Lu-c-fer. Due to the long period of time hooked into the Cylonic consciousness, neither he nor Jolly fully recovers, their minds subsumed by Cylonic code (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 4).
