Ovion Wars and Desertion
Following the end of the Ovion Wars, he leaves the service of the Colonial Empire under mysterious circumstances, of which there are many rumors given he leaves the fleet following the Battle of Carillion. One such story told by Starbuck to Athena notes of his warning Adama that Baltar has his own designs of power, and that the Quorum itself is not to be trusted given the summary disappearance of two Warriors saved by Baltar following Carillion: Boomer and Jolly (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 2).
After the disappearance of Apollo during the Cylonic suicide attack on Caprica, Fleet Admiral Tigh informs Lady Athena about Starbuck's location there, believing that Starbuck would be the only person who could find Apollo.
Search for Apollo
Following recruitment by Athena to search for Apollo, Starbuck finds himself fleeing Rising Star and his ship damaged, setting down on the remains of Carillion and the discovery that the Ovions had survived. Much to his consternation, Athena offers herself to the Ovions in order to secure their assistance against Baltar and the Cylonics (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 3).
Starbuck lends assistance on the assault upon Gamoray by selling himself into bonded servitude to Cassiopeia and Sheba, thereby securing the pirates' assistance.
After Starbuck delivers Athena to the surface of Gamoray in the attempt to stop Iblis from assuming control of the Cylonics, he tells a wounded Apollo the truth on why he left, and how it related to his true feelings about Athena.
Following the victory against the Cylonics, Starbuck convinces the Queens to release him from servitude and reveals his true feelings for Athena, which lead into their marriage and his re-instatement as Major in the Colonial Empire (Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 4).
