This is the fifth in an on-going series of entries covering all the major themes in the Battlestar Galactica score. This melody, almost always accompanied with snare drums, was originally scored as a bansuri solo, set against Apollo briefing the viper pilots in the first episode of Season One.

It quickly developed into a theme for all military zonatica of the colonial fleet, becoming especially associated with the friendship between Bill Adama and Saul Tigh.
