Additional Information

At the Pacific Institute of Technology's AR Building, Troy and Dillon run into two guards. The first guard, whose full name is not spoken in dialogue[1] is stunned by Troy, allowing the two of them to enter Dr. Donald Mortinson's office.

A second guard stops Troy and Dillon at gunpoint on a walk way after they leave Mortinson's office, with Dorothy Carlyle close behind (1980: "Galactica Discovers Earth, Part I").


  • "Howard"'s name is not spoken in the dialogues, yet this name is fully visible on his name tag on the Blu-ray editions of the episode (not on the DVD versions).
  • Don Maxwell is credited as "2nd Guard" in the episode.


  1. The name is deduced based on a comment he makes to Dorothy Carlyle and a legible shot of his name badge. See: Jack Archer for details.
