Ensign Abel Thornton is an officer assigned to CIC aboard Pegasus. He serves as the tactical officer during the search for the missing Raptor party and the following battle.

His duties aboard Pegasus appear to mirror those of Lt. Felix Gaeta on Galactica (TRS: "The Captain's Hand").


  • Despite his duties mirroring those of Lt. Geata on Galactica, Thornton does not wear junior flight wings and it can therefore be assumed he does not hold any kind of flight status.
