The Long Patrol

Battlestar Galactica (original)At long last, Galactica leaves known human territory en route to Earth. With the stakes and the danger increasing as the ship ventures into uncharted space, one of the Vipers is modified, affording it super speed at the cost of all of its weapons. Starbuck is assigned to take the point in a long-range reconnaisance flight, accompanied only by a computer called CORA. As luck – or Starbuck’s total lack thereof – would have it, he fails to avoid trouble, falling victim to a prison escapee and losing his ship. While Commander Adama and Galactica’s other pilots try to figure out who has taken control of Starbuck’s high-speed fighter, Starbuck finds himself stuck in a forgotten human prison, where he finds a vital clue to Earth’s location.
