Lieutenant Richard "Buster" Bayer is a Raptor pilot assigned to the battlestar Pegasus.

He flies Raptor 718 during a Raptor training exercise and responds to a false distress signal created by the Cylons.

Not long after reaching the signal's origin, Bayer, ECO Lyla Ellway, and the crew of the accompanying Raptor, Raptor 314, are killed by Cylons and left as bait to lure more Colonials to their rescue (TRS: "The Captain's Hand").
