Boomer is a Leonid Colonial Warrior aboard Galactica. In the 18 yahrens following the Battle of Cimtar, he is promoted to the rank of major and is one of many instructors at the Academy (RH: Armageddon).

Boomer is the only survivor of his immediate family, for his younger sister, Persephone, was killed on Leonis by the Cylons during the Final Annihilation in 7342[1].

In 7360, Major Boomer is instrumental in preventing the further destruction of Hephaestus by Paris and his Puck-supporting separatist blackshirts, as well as saving nine members of the crisis-response team from the Fleet's crisis-control ship Neptune[2].

Boomer is later instrumental in the subsequent battle against the Cylons near Binary 13[3], allowing Apollo to use the damaged Hephaestus to destroy the basestar in a kamikaze maneuver[4] (RH: Armageddon).

Notes

  • Boomer is berthed with the other pilots, primarily because he feels that, as an Academy instructor, this allows the cadets to know him and for him to understand these new recruits[5].
