Additional Information

Max is an officer with the New York State Police who rides in car seven, unit 1711.

He points out the smoke plumes and explosions from the crash of the A-B Raider to his partner, Leroy, as they are roughly 60 miles north of New York City.

Max encounters Troy and Dillon, who he believes survived the crash—although it confuses him how they were able to survive such a wreck. He later suspects them to be drug smugglers or dealing in something illegal and, on that hunch, sends Leroy to check out the crash site, wanting to take whatever credit for the bust they can before someone else would.

Both he and Leroy later attempt to arrest the Warriors, who claim they want to give a statement, but are subsequently stunned (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I").


  • The name is derived from the dialogue. The character is otherwise credited as "1st Officer" in the end credit roll.
