Character Bio

Samuel Anders photo
Samuel T. "Longshot" Anders is a rook Viper pilot aboard Galactica and husband to Captain Kara Thrace.

Before the Fall of the Twelve Colonies, Anders was captain of the Caprica Buccaneers. On Cylon-occupied Caprica, he becomes leader of the human resistance until they are rescued by his future wife. He later becomes aware of his true nature as one of the Cylon "Final Five" (Crossroads, Part II).

After suffering a near fatal-gunshot wound to the base of his skull during a mutiny on Galactica, he regains memories of his life as a Cylon on Earth. In the short time he has before undergoing essential surgery, he tries to tell fellow Cylons Galen Tyrol, Tory Foster and Saul Tigh their history as the Final Five, but after the surgery he is left comatose. The Rebel Cylons try to jumpstart his brain by installing a Hybrid tank on Galactica and linking him to a datastream, and though initially unresponsive he begins to act very much like a Hybrid and is able to interact with Galactica because of the Cylon repairs and upgrades throughout the ship. He dies when, as part of the Colonial plan to abandon their advanced technology and begin anew, he pilots Galactica and her fleet into the sun of the second Earth.

During his life on Earth, he also composed a song identical to the modern "All Along the Watchtower" by Bob Dylan. Dreilide Thrace and Hera Agathon independently echo this song, pointing towards their link (along with Dylan) to the same "ethereal source".
