This article covers the various depictions of Serina from the tie-in novelizations, comic books, and other media.

Berkley Novelizations


Serina is a Caprican native with a history as a worlds-famous news reporter. She won various awards during her career before the Battle of Cimtar, but she was "forced" to refuse them for unspecified reasons of a political nature.[1]

Further, it is noted that Serina adopted Boxey after the Cylon attacks.[2]

Dynamite Entertainment comics

For coverage on a Serina encountered in an alternate reality, see: Serina (TOS alternate reality).

Following the Battle of Cimtar, Serina and her son, Boxey, berth with Apollo on Galactica. Prior to Apollo's mission to Maytoria, Serina convinces Boxey to be strong for Apollo, even though Boxey fears that Apollo might not return. In turn, Apollo solicits a promise from Boxey (and Muffit) to watch over Serina while he is gone. As they depart, Starbuck promises Serina that Apollo would return even if he has "to drag him a hundred hectars through the aldarium belt" (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 1 #1).

After Apollo returns from the disastrous mission without either Starbuck or Boomer, Serina attempts to comfort Apollo and give him a space in which to mourn; Apollo recalls his promise to Starbuck from their early days at the Academy and refuses to do so, fearing that he would never recover from the act of catharsis (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 1 #2).

After her death at Cylon hands on Kobol, Boxey is raised by Apollo with the help of various crew members who act as an extended family (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #12)

A version of Serina from an alternate reality appears in Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2, as a Colonial Warrior in Adama's resistance to the Cylons.

Marvel comics

Serina saves Boxey from falling debris on Caprica during the Battle of Cimtar (Annihilation!).

Serina reports from Caprica City as the Cylons launch their devastating attack against the Twelve Colonies of Man. She saves her son, Boxey, from falling debris during the attack as he plays with his daggit, Muffit.

With a group of survivors, she makes way to the landing site of Apollo's Viper, and begins asking various questions regarding the Colonial Fleet and the unexpected Cylon attack. Adama appears after returning from the remains of his former home, and tells the survivors to assemble together and take any ship that can carry them, thus creating the Fleet (Annihilation!).
