Additional Information

Megan is the only surviving parent of Kyle, Miri, Ariadne, Robus, and Nilz; their mother died in the Cylon attack of Attila. He was obviously a wealthy landowner and moral man, defying the Cylons through guerrilla attacks.

Being shown an offer for his exchange from Kyle (written on a piece of leather or parchment) by Specter, Megan isn't too pleased to learn that his son Kyle is going to trade another human for him (He even blaims his son to be egoistical, although Kyle only desperately tries to bring back Megan as his father to his 5 children). Specter manages to trick Megan into believing that he would be traded, even going as so far as extracting a promise to stop his children from attacking his garrison.

When the trade occurs, Specter allows a short, terse statement from Megan, then has a Centurion temporarily silence him. In a duplicitous fashion, Specter sends over a fabricated human-shaped duplicate made out of textile materials.

Megan is quite pleased to see that his children had done the same, meaning they had learned that the Cylons could never be trusted. Megan is freed by Starbuck and Miri, who sneak themselves into the castle via a secret entrance.

After Boomer and Apollo land on the planet, Megan and his family elect to stay on Attila. After all, they had fought for it, and now it was theirs (TOS: "The Young Lords").


  • In the novelization, Megan was the mother of the children, not the father as depicted in the episode. Given that character's name is commonly used for females in the United States, this would actually make sense. It is more likely that the novelization writer Robert Thurston assumed that the character is feminine.
