Boxey in 7358 as depicted in Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #4.

Boxey is the son of Serina who survives the Cylon Holocaust.

During his early years in the Fleet, Boxey resides aboard Galactica with his step-father, Apollo, following the death of his mother. This leaves Boxey without any known surviving blood relations, as is the case with numerous survivors throughout the fugitive fleet.


En route to Earth, Boxey becomes one of the many denizens of the Fleet to share in the dream of Earth, projected by delta-class telepath Xam as they traverse an unnamed storm zone. This concerns both Apollo and Boxey's step-aunt, Athena (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #8#9).

After the events of Adama's Gambit, Boxey resumes attempting to find a place to play aboard Galactica, often being shooed from the engine room by Colonel Tigh and bouncing around to various parts of the active battlestar, including the launch bay. Following Boomer from the launch bay, he happens upon a funeral ceremony to commemorate the pilots lost, and realizes the sacrifice many Warriors make to protect them. Commander Adama comes across the distraught boy and consoles him, escorting him to core command and promising him that Boxey will someday grow up to see Earth (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #12).

Later, as they transit a black hole, Boxey is briefly seen cavorting about Galactica with his trusted robotic daggit, Muffit (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 3 #1 & #5).


Entering his teens, Boxey is scared by the loss of Apollo following the Encounter of the Super Basestar, after yahrens of non-existent contact with their relentless Cylon pursuers (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #2).

Following Apollo's unsanctioned rescue, Boxey discusses enlisting as a Colonial Warrior to Apollo, himself grappling with being forced into an advisory support role given a brain injury that prevents Apollo's active front-line defense of the Fleet. Apollo takes Boxey's gumption at becoming the warrior in an offensive way, lashing out at his step-son (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #5).

The Cylons ambush the Fleet sectons into Apollo's return, leaving him little choice but to step back into a Viper cockpit, and give his life to destroy the dreaded Cylon super basestar. This leaves Boxey without a father figure, relying more on his adopted family of his grandfather and aunt, and Galactica's surviving crew (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #6).
