Space suit (TOS)
This somewhat-bulky suit consists of a bubble-shaped helmet, connected to a flexible pressure suit with a life-support backpack. Two large hoses connect to the helmet to provide and to clean air to be scrubbed for unbreathable gases from expiration.
These suits aren't used during Viper flights; Colonial Warriors do not wear any life-support gear during their flights. In the Viper's cockpit, Warriors wear a helmet for communications and their standard uniform in most instances.
- This is a Battlestar Wiki descriptive term.
- In contrast, the Re-imagined Series pilots use a special one-piece pressure suit during their Viper and Raptor flights. As no other means of emergency life support flight wear was shown in the Original Series, the probability of a space-borne SAR mission for Colonial Warriors would seem unlikely since the Warrior would not live long without vacuum protection.
