Captain George "Catman"[1] Birch is a Viper pilot on the battlestar Galactica.

After the defection of Captain Lee Adama, Commander William Adama promotes him to Captain and makes him CAG in Lee's stead. Although the elder Adama values him for his dedication and loyalty, Saul Tigh believes he is too inexperienced for the position.

Birch proves Tigh's fears to be well-founded when he endangers the life of Louanne Katraine during a target exercise in an asteroid field, and fails to keep the vessel Striker from colliding with a tanker during a fueling operation (TRS: "Home, Part I").

Later, his callsign appears on a pilot duty roster in the episode "Six of One" and "Someone to Watch Over Me".
