Galactica: The New Millennium #1 (Realm Press)
Script: Jim Kuhoric
Art: Santiago (with title card by Robert Scott)
Sheba, the daughter of the legendary
Commander Cain of the battlestar Pegasus, is shot down
over a dangerous world.
Some time before the destruction of the
Fifth Fleet, Commander Cain's daughter, Sheba, illicitly assigns
herself to her first excursion into Viper combat. She is shot
down by the enemy, but manages to walk away from a crash landing on a nearby
planet. Finding even her laser pistol useless, she is forced to
flee when ape-like predators attack her.
After a series of narrow escapes, she is
left in blood-splattered shock, having killed the final few
predators with a makeshift stone dagger in a cave, where she is
found by a Pegasus search party led by her father.
Sheba has begun a career in which she will
prove herself to be every bit her father's daughter.
Notes from the BSG Chronology
This story takes place some time before the loss of the Fifth
Fleet headed by Commander Cain of the Pegasus and,
therefore, before the destruction of the Colonies.
This story was chapter one of what was intended to be a series
of stories called Tales of the Pegasus that would have
appeared in future issues of
Galactica: The New Millennium if there had been
any. Unfortunately, Realm Press closed up shop shortly after
this issue was published.

Why is Sheba's laser pistol not working
after the crash landing? It does not have obvious damage. Did
she forget to charge it? Was it a weapon stowed in the Viper for
emergencies and had not been recently maintenanced?
Page 9 implies that Sheba's Viper excursion
was her first in combat.
