Doctor Donald Mortinson is one of the Earth's foremost nuclear physicists who works at the Pacific Institute of Technology, in addition to being a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
Mortinson is convinced of their being from a different planet after they leave a completed mathematical formula on his computer. He arranges a meeting with the two Colonials, but recognizes that Jamie Hamilton is trying to capture him on film and they escape.
Dr. Mortinson is later approached by Xaviar, who tries to convince him of the benefits of altering Earth's history in order to speed up the development of technology. Xaviar takes him hostage, using him to successfully escape and go back in time to pre-revolutionary America (Galactica Discovers Earth).
He later mentioned as monitoring Colonial frequencies for Dillon and Troy, although as he does so he is unable to detect the Cylon frequencies emitted by the A-B Raider (The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I).
