Background

Lieutenant Boomer is famous throughout the Fleet for his cautious, intelligent manner, as well as his methodical modus operandi, which Boomer has a love-hate relationship with.[1]

Dynamite Entertainment comics

Following the Battle at Galaxy's Edge, Boomer participates in the recon to an unidentified planet and discovers its damning truths and dangers. Along with Starbuck, he participates as bait to lure Meclon Raiders to make a landing, and successfully ambushes their pilots to acquire their ships (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 3 #1#3).

After returning to Galactica with their stolen Meclon Raiders, Boomer pilots a Viper against the Meclon forces. His Viper becomes damaged during the engagement after saving Sheba from a pursuing Meclon, but survives the engagement due to the intervention of the Seraphs (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 3 #4 & #5).

Maximum Press comics

Sometime after "The Hand of God", Boomer and Lieutenant Deitra become romantically involved and apparently sealed. As a result of their union, Cleo is born, but Boomer suffers Dietra's loss sometime after Cleo's birth (The Enemy Within 2).

By 7362, Boomer is given a promotion to colonel and is given full command of Galactica's squadrons, and is one of the first Warriors to land on Earth (War of Eden 1). After Commander Cain reactivates Sheba's commission in the Colonial Fleet, Sheba becomes Boomer's wingman to prepare her for command of Silver Spar Squadron (The Enemy Within 2).
