Capt. Roger "Reamer" Barstow has not received any gifts yet
I was born an only child on Scorpia long after the first Cylon war ended. My parents were among the major stock holders of the Viper production facility in the city of Amura. My father was an avid pilot and taught me to fly at young age.
I was away from home at a boarding school on Caprica while my parents were on a cruise of the Talimar Islands in the Palentia Ocean on Scorpia. The ship they were sailing on was lost in a fast moving typhoon while the officer on watch was engaged in a drunken party on the bridge. The entire crew and passengers perished in the storm.
I lied about my age and joined the Colonial Air Force at the rank of ensign and fullfilled my childhod dream of becoming a Viper pilot. I was young compared to the other recently recruited pilots. I worked extra hard to prove that age has nothing to do with being an expert piolt. I was one of the first Viper jocks in my squadron to earn the coveted award of “Top Gun.” I joined the crew of the Battlestar Raven and served under Captain Leonidas in the Spartan Squadron.
Recently I was given my first command as the Squadron Leader of the new “Flying Tigers” Air Wing!!!!!!!
My Real Life Biography:
I have always been a science fiction fan. When I was young I watched Star Trek, Lost in Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and any TV show that had a hint of SyFy in it.
I have been a fan of Battlestar Galactica since the very beginning and I never missed an episode. In fact, I couldn't wait for the following weeks show. I was shocked when the show was cancelled. I always thought its makers made a big mistake taking Battlestar Galactica off the air.
Then Star Wars came on the scene. I was a member of the Star Wars Fan Club. I went to the theater to see every Star Wars film and I wished it would become a TV series, but as you know it never did.
Star Wars came and went and I followed anything new on the science fiction scene. Then life was getting busy with work and other hobbies (Cars, Guns, Reloading Ammo, and Target shooting). Then like most of us I got married and life was good! ! ! ! !
