Additional Information

Donzo is a biker and part of Willy's California motorcycle gang.

He asks Willy about the turbocycles that Troy and Dillon are riding, encouraging Willy to investigate. He pulls up to Dillon's left as the gang circles them with their own motorcycles (1980: "Galactica Discovers Earth, Part I").

Novelization depiction

In the novelization by Michael Resnick, this character is named of Donzo Gates[1]. The motivation for his fight with Troy and Dillon is revealed as a means to stop his "old lady" from making eyes on Lizard Charlie, an event that transpires over the course of the past week. Further, his motivation for joining Hell's Angels is for the fights; he carries a switchblade that he tries to slice the Warriors with, only for Troy to use the knife to slice the bikers' tires after dispatching the twenty-plus Angels with their laser pistols.[2]

Behind the Scenes

  • In "Galactica Discovers Earth, Part I" at 0:22:11 on the Blu-ray restoration, a younger stunt double for Mickey Jones can be clearly seen riding Donzo's motorcycle. The same stuntman collides with Willy's stunt double from behind with his motorcycle after Troy and Dillon took off the highway (at 0:23:09).
