Lieutenant George Birch was a Viper pilot on the Battlestar Galactica. After the defection of Captain Lee Adama, Commander William Adama promoted him to Captain and made CAG in Lee's stead. Although the elder Adama valued him for his dedication and loyalty, Saul Tigh believed he was too inexperienced for the position. Birch proved Tigh's fears to be well-founded when he nearly got Cadet Katraine killed during target practice in an asteroid field, and failed to keep the vessel Striker from colliding with a tanker during a fueling operation.
