Andromus is the commander of an advanced "A-B" Cylon fighter with a unique Cylon physical form: The appearance of a human, although he is still more android than a biological construct.

Andromus' fighter crash-lands in New York. He takes Centuri (the only other survivor of the crash; a second Cylon android perishes) on a mission to transmit a distress signal back to the Cylons.

He and Centuri attend a party, where they met Wolfman Jack. Centuri is disabled by radiation from a microwave oven. Andromus uses his red beam to destroy the microwave and set fire in the apartment, allowing them to kidnap Wolfman Jack by employing his power of persuasion.

They head for Wolfman Jack's radio station, where they plan to send their distress signal. The Cylon's plans are thwarted by Troy and Dillon.

A disoriented Centuri carries Andromus off the top of the radio station's building to their demise (The Night the Cylons Landed).

Notes

  • Andromus is the first instance of the concept of a humanoid Cylon in the Battlestar Galactica universe. The concept would be re-visited to dramatic effect 23 years later in the Re-imagined Series, although those Cylons wouldn't be androids, but biological creations.
  • Andromus was scripted to appear in the episode "The Super Scouts, Part I" during the attack on the freighter Delphi, which showed the brief debut of the "A-B Raider".[1] However, the scripted scenes never made their way into the episode: either they were never shot or were removed during the editing process.
