Captain Apollo Death Revealed in ‘BSG’ Continuity


Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new miniseries that will chronicle the death of Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica series continuity, launching in December.

The series will be written by Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova, The Legion), with art by Dietrich Smith (Army of Darkness, Battlestar Galactica), and covers by Smith, Livio Ramondelli, Mike Mayhew, and a subscription variant by Ardian Syaf.

Captain Apollo was the central character of the original 1978 Battlestar Galacticaseries, but after it ended in 1979, Apollo did not return for the sequel series Galactica 1980, which was set several years in the future.  It was implied in the dialog that the hero starfighter pilot had died in the intervening years, but his fate was never overtly detailed.  This series will now fill in those gaps.
