Cadet Lomis is a "green" Viper pilot on Galactica.
He accompanies Blue Squadron on a patrol that happens across the Acmarans's homeworld. After Cadet Colin encounters an unidentified energy field, Lomis bugs out, believing the patrol to be under attack. As he attempts to return to orbit from this planet, his Viper encounters an energy field, instantly destroying the Viper (The Law of Volahd).
