Commander Adama and Colonel Boomer—now second-in-command in place of Colonel Tigh— on the advice of a mysterious teenager named Doctor Zee who serves as Adama's advisor, sends Captain "Boxey" Troy, who is the adopted son of Adama's own son Apollo, and Lt. Dillon to North America, where they become entangled with TV journalist Jamie Hamilton.
The fate of several other characters - Adama's daughter Athena, Colonel Tigh, Starbuck's girlfriend Cassiopeia, and the evil Count Baltar - are not revealed, and all four characters are absent from the series.
Greene (Adama) and Jefferson (Boomer) were the only major cast members of the original series to return, with Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict both unable to return due to commitments to other projects, although as noted below, Benedict did appear in an episode using previously unscreened footage from the original program.
Colonel Crocker spent the winter of 1884 and 1885 at his old Iowa home and made speeches over that state to arouse public sentiment for the opening of the unassigned lands in the Indian Territory for settlement under homestead laws.
Colonel Crocker was a valuable accession to the cause for he was a voluble public speaker and had experience as an organizer of the people to promote progressive movements of all kinds.
Notwithstanding the fact that Colonel Crocker was rather visionary in some of his political views and loved nothing as well as expressing his views in public speeches and lectures, he was a thrifty man and could see the possibilities of raising something to eat and to sell on his claim as the reader may note.
