Disclaimer: I don’t own this stuff, Moore/Eick and RDA/Gecko/MGM do. I’m not making any money here, and I promise that I’ll give them back in a little bit; exactly as I found them, complete with all the little pieces.
Notes: I can't be the only one that this occurred to...
Apollo’s DRADIS chirped.
“Galactica, Apollo... I’m in Viper 3. I have a bogey on my ten, I’m gonna go and check it out.“ He rolled his viper in the general direction of the contact. Without warning, the contact disappeared.
“Where’d he go? Where the FRAK did you go?” Apollo looked around frantically, trying to get a visual of the bogey. Something buzzed his canopy.
“Whoa! What the FRAK?!”

The radio crackled in his ear. A drawling male voice filled his ears. “Naw... That was all me. Lieutenant Colonel Cameron Mitchell, at your service.” One of the alien ships came up on Lee’s other side and the pilot waved. “I hear you’ve got some problems with some sorta freaky robot armada.”
Lee was a bit non-plussed. “Any assistance you can provide would be great.”
“Odyssey, Shaft. Let’s roll.”
