Maximum Press comics

Doctor Wilker is the residential electronics and engineering expert on Galactica.

His team is tasked with the maintenance and control of the temporal overdrive, which Wilker has studied since its installation in 7347 (War of Eden 1, The Enemy Within 2).

After a Cylon attack paralyzed Wilker in 7357, Wilker became obsessed with androids and the ability to transfer a human consciousness into a human simulacrum. He successfully does so by 7362, with his memory and essence transferred in a cybernetic brain. Fortunately, his body and brain manage to survive after Ares, a Cylon agent, overloads the temporal overdrive, attacking Wilker before doing so. The recording of this attack is retrieved by Salik, which reveals Ares's true nature (The Enemy Within 3).
