BSG:The Next Chapter Season2 Episode11 . Previously on Battlestar Galactica: . Strummer: "Frak! I'm hit!"
Shraga: "Sir, it's Strummer, he's been hit, no signal from his emergency beacon..."
Mav: "Galactica, Maverick, approaching the landing bay, let's get the frak out of here!"
LT Kevin Moodster, call sign Strummer.
His Viper, severely damaged in the midst of battle, now careens into the gravity well of the planet Canceron. The Athenian Raider had been stealthy, approaching from his blind spot. In spite of his talent as a pilot, his lack of combat experience made him an easy target. Unfortunately the emergency transponder in his fighter was destroyed, generating no distress signals to the Galactica.
Assuming his Viper lost, and the rescued Levopolis safely aboard Galactica, the order to jump the ship was given.
Luckily for Strummer, the damage was limited to the engines, leaving the cockpit and its various safety systems intact.
More than simply a parachute, Viper ejection seats had been upgraded to include a component more akin to a hang glider. Advances in paper thin yet ultra strong alloys which respond to electrical currents made such a feature possible and reliable.
Strummer: "From the looks of it, I should have brought my snowboard!"
Strummer: "This is going to hurt!"
Strummer: "Galactica, Strummer, do you copy? Made it to the surface, over..."
Strummer: "Galactica, Strummer, please respond!"
Strummer: "Frak! Okay, first things first: Get to higher ground!"
Strummer: "This ought to be higher enough..."
Strummer: "Galactica, Strummer, do you copy?!"
Strummer: "Anyone?! Bueller?"
Strummer: "Frak!! Looks like I'm going to need to find a place to stay."
Strummer: "Hey, what might THAT be? Probably not a B and B with warm tasty popovers, but I suppose it'll do."
Strummer: "More like some kinda military outpost."
Strummer: "All sorts a junk lying around..."
Strummer: "Pretty quiet..."
Strummer: "Find a door, find food."
Strummer: "Maybe even a radio. That would be nice."
Strummer: "It's like something out of a creepy scifi movie."
Strummer: "What the?"
Strummer: "What happened here?"
Strummer: "What were they doing?"
Strummer: "Some kind of experiment?"
Strummer: "It's like they were building body parts..."
Strummer: "Is that...?"
Strummer: "An arm?"
Strummer (out of breath): "Okay, get a grip, Dude!"
Strummer: "Gotta get away from this place."
Scout Ship departs the Triton for the surface.
Major Leda Ouriana, call sign Cougar: "Smell that mountain air!"
Cougar: "Alright boys, nice day for a hike!"
Cougar: "Let's find our lost pilot."
Marines: Yes, Sir!"
Cougar: "Hopefully he hasn't gotten himself into any trouble..."
Strummer: "Thank God! Cougar! I crashed, and I found this place, torture, experiments, it was..."
Cougar: "Whoa, slow down, it's okay, we've found you!"
Strummer: "What are you doing here anyway? I thought...?"
Cougar: "We received a distress signal from the Galactica."
Cougar: "From what we can tell, the Athenians were somehow able to get around their defenses ..."
Cougar: "They got a nuke into the flight pod, and..."
Strummer: "But? What are you saying?"
Cougar: "There was nothing we could do, by the time we jumped in..."
