Colonial military pilots in the Re-imagined series are identified by a callsign rather than their proper name when on duty. Callsigns are given to pilots upon completion of training and certification, and once a pilot is given a call sign, it is "for life." The pilot's callsign also becomes his/her nickname during off duty hours. No two active officers from the same base can have the same callsign. Pilots given a callsign who later move to other duties (e.g. Adm. "Husker" Adama) retain their callsign whether or not it is used. Unlike functionary callsigns (e.g. "Galactica Actual" or "Colonial One") these callsigns identify an individual regardless of the role he/she occupies at any given time.

Pilots, of Raptors and Vipers, and their callsign are as follows. Only pilots for whom a full or partial name and a callsign are disclosed are listed. For a more comprehensive listing please see this page. All pilots are based on Galactica unless otherwise noted.
