Storyline

After years of searching for Earth, the Galactica finds Earth. Adama would like to land but a child prodigy named Dr. Zee advises Adama against it because he believes that if they do that the Cylons will attack the Earth. So it's decided to send men to go to Earth and to make contact with people who won't treat them as a threat and whom they can ask to help introduce technology that could help the Earth stand up to a possible Cylon attack. Boxey who is now an adult and a warrior who goes by the name Troy, and another warrior Dillon are sent to North America to make contact with a scientist who believes in life beyond the Earth. But they are mistaken for people who want to harm the man so they are arrested. But when he sees something they left, he knows who and what they are. They leave word that they contact them through Jamie Hamilton, a reporter they met. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
