In the Viper pilots bunk area of the Galactica, hot-card ace Starbuck fails to anticipate the skills of young Boxey, in this scene from The Lost Warrior. When the episode was originally shown on the UK's THAMES TV back in 1981, this scene was cut out - not to be shown complete until the early nineties, when it was on BBC 2, then with a run on SKY TV.

The after effects of Captain Apollo's death gain further momentum with his friends, as the fourth issue of Death of Apollo arrives later this month (31st) from DYNAMITE, with this terrific cover (one of seven) courtesy of Mike Mayhew.
Here's the story info:
In the wake of Apollo's tragic fate, Starbuck secretly recruits Boomer, Athena and a few chosen others for a desperate and unsanctioned mission, but his reckless determination may be leaving the fleet vulnerable to Cylon attack. And the gathering Cylon threat is stronger and more insidious than ever before. Starbuck won't let anything stop him... not Adama, not the Cylons and not even common sense. Shocking drama and continuity-shaking military SF action from the acclaimed writer of Guardians of the Galaxy!
