Hamish "Skulls" McCall is a Raptor pilot and ECO assigned to Galactica.

He serves as Racetrack's co-pilot during the rescue mission for the Caprica resistance. When their Raptor misses their jump, they discover a habitable planet which is later dubbed New Caprica. After returning to the Fleet, McCall and Edmondson are commended for the accidental discovery (Lay Down Your Burdens, Part I).

Over a year later, during the planet's occupation by the Cylons, Skulls is Racetrack's ECO during their missions to detect communications from the resistance movement on New Caprica, in which they are eventually successful (Occupation).

On a routine patrol around the Fleet, his Raptor suffers from an engine and RCS malfunction, due to impurities in its tylium fuel. Unable to regain control and on a collision course with Colonial One, he and Racetrack are forced to eject from the Raptor. The craft collides with Colonial One, causing moderate hull damage and several injuries, but no fatalities (Dirty Hands).

As the Fleet approaches the Ionian nebula, Racetrack and Skulls are tasked to stay one jump point behind the Fleet to keep watch for possible Cylon pursuers. The two pass their time with playing Triad and Racetrack teases him about masturbating in his bunk. When a Cylon fleet shows up they barely manage to spin up the FTL drive and escape before being destroyed by a missile (Crossroads, Part I).

McCall is one of the pilots who helps pull the body of Alan Hughes out of the Raptor after a bomb placed by Aaron Kelly explodes under his seat (The Son Also Rises).
