Additional Information

Colonel[1][2] Davies is the United States Air Force officer who reports to General Cushing about Troy's and Dillon's Vipers entering American airspace (1980: "Galactica Discovers Earth, Part I").

Novelization depiction[edit]

In the novelization by Michael Resnick, this character is given the full name of Henry Becksworth Davies in a news clipping. Also a colonel, he is the aide of General Tucker Wilson (General Cushing's analogue), and he denies every report of the sighted UFOs, which are known to the reader as Troy and Dillon's Vipers.[3]


  • The name for this character comes from the name plate on the character's uniform, which can be seen briefly as Davies approaches Cushing's desk. It is also confirmed by the shooting script for the episode.
