Battlestar Galactica: Come Sit By My Fire
by Andrew Troy Keller ([email protected])

There are those who believe that life here had began out far across the
universe with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the
Egyptians, the Toltecs or even the Mayans or may have also been the
architects of the Great Pyramids or the lost civilizations of Lemuria or

Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to
survive somewhere beyond the heavens, for these long-lost brothers of man
must continue fleeing from the Cylon Tyrany and allow their last Battlestar
known as Galactica to lead a rag-tag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest for a
shining planet known as Earth.

That would also mean that the Colonials would have to send a few of their
Vipers on a scouting mission to make sure that the path that lies before the
mighty Battlestar is clear of any Cylon fighters and their baseships, for
within one of those baseships is the treacherous Count Baltar, who had
allowed himself to join with the Cylons to help them destroy the surviving
humans of the colonies that the Cylons had destroyed.

However, there are some missions in which something would happen to make
those Viper pilots wish that they hadn't allowed themselves to volunteer for
the job in the first place.

Case in point: it has been 2500 centons since the Galactica and her attendant
fleet of 220 smaller spacecraft had entered a newfound sector of space that
has appeared to be untouched by any of the Cylon Raiders and with good
reason, for the Battlestar's commanding officer, Commander Adama has just
learned from his second-in-command, Colonel Tigh that the sector that they've
just entered was on none of the ship's star-charts.

After he had looked at the star-charts and discovered that Tigh was telling
the truth, Adama had looked at the main view-screen, stared at the image of
the newfound sector of space for a minute or two, took a deep breath and
said, "In that case, we must send a scouting party out there to make sure
that this is really not a Cylon trap."

And then, after he had nodded his head in agreement with Adama's possible
theroy, Tigh has ordered Adama's son and leader of the Galactica's fighter
squadron, Captain Apollo to gather a small group of pilots to join him on
the latest scouting mission.

Just then, after Lt. Starbuck, Lt. Boomer and Lt. Athena had joined Captain
Apollo and his father in the hanger bay, Adama had placed his gentle hand on
his son's shoulder and said, "Now, I know that this sector of space is
uncharted and that it just might be a Cylon trap.So, the only thing that I'm
now going to say to you is be careful out there and come back to us safely."

"Don't worry, Father. We'll be back soon," said an understanding Apollo, just
before he had given his father a loving hug, turned to his fellow pilots and
said, "Okay, you space dogs. Let's go do our job and get back here in one

And after Boomer and Apollo had gotten themselves into one Viper and Starbuck
and Athena had gotten themselves into the other one, the four space pilots
had lauched themselves out of the Galactica and headed towards the spot in
front of the ship.

"Say, Apollo. I'm really not so sure about this," said Bommer, while he was
keeping his eyes on the Viper's long-range scanners for any sign of Cylon
base-ships. "I mean, I've been looking at these scanners ever since we've
left the Galactica and so far, I haven't picked-up any Cylon signals."

"Believe me, Boomer. You're not the only one who feels this way," said
Starbuck, just before Apollo had taken a deep breath and said, "Look, Guys.
I know what you're saying, but if we don't do this, the entire fleet would
have no choice, but to stay right where they are and allow the Cylons to
catch-up to them -- and you know what that means."

And then, after Boomer and Starbuck had gotten what Apollo was trying to say
to them, the two teams of space pilots had continued with their scouting
mission, unaware that one of the many Cylon base-ships has also found its way
into the newfound space sector.

That particular Cylon base-ship was the one that has the human traitor Count
Baltar aboard it -- and after he had overheard the transmission between the
pilots from the Galactica, Baltar had allowed a sinister smile to appear on
his lips and said, "Ssssoooo, Adama! You've also discovered this sector as
well! Wonderful! Simply wonderful!"

"Indeed it is, Count Baltar," said Lucifer, Count Baltar's second-in-command,
after he had turned his head towards the evil human. "And if our calculations
are correct, we should be able to strike them down and make sure that the
Galactica stays stationary and gives us the time we need to attack."

"Yes, Lucifer! I agree!" said Baltar, after he had looked at Lucifer with the
look of devilish glee in his eyes. "Order our fighters to attack the Vipers
and have them make sure that they don't leave any survivors!"

"By your command," said Lucifer, just he had bowed in front of his master and
left the room, leaving the sinister Count Baltar to look up at the ceiling,
let out such a large smile and said, "Soon, Adama! Soon, it'll all be over
and this time, you shall never be able to escape ever again!"

Just then, after the Viper pilots were almost done with their scouting
mission, Starbuck's co-pilot, Athena had looked at the long-range scanners,
saw a few blips heading towards them and said, "Heads up, Guys! We've got
Cylon fighters heading right towards us!"

"Believe me, Athena! You're not the only one who sees those blips!" said
Boomer, just before the Cylon fighters had swooped down and started firing
their lazer-cannons at the Vipers. "I do believe that it's time for us to
zoom back to the Galactica!"

But then, after the two Vipers had turned around and started heading back
to the Galactica, one of the Cylon pilots had switched on his comm-link and
said, "Destroy those ships! They must not reach the Galactica! By Baltar's

And with that, one of the Cylon fighters had fired its lazer-cannons at the
one Viper with Athena and Starbuck inside it, causing one of its engines to
become damaged and forcing that one Viper to zoom its way towards a nearby

However, even though they've spotted their friends' damaged Viper heading
towards the planet, both Apollo and Boomer had no choice, but to leave their
friends behind and try to get themselves back to the Galactica.

Just then, after they were finally able to land their damaged Viper, both
Athena and Starbuck had gotten themselves out of the Viper and went to the
damaged area to see how bad it was.

"Aaaahhhh, shit!I don't fucking believe this!" said Starbuck, after he had
noticed just bad the damage really was. "Well, the only thing we have to do
now is hope that Apollo and Boomer had made it back to the Galactica and let
them know where we are."

"Speaking of which, Starbuck. Where are we?" asked a confused Athena, after
she had looked around the area that they've had no choice, but to crash-land
in. "I mean, this place looks way too beautiful to me."

But then, after he had realized what she was actually saying, Starbuck had
placed his gentle hands on Athena's shoulders and said, "Look, Athena. It's
okay. We're safe. You don't need to be paranoid about every little thing."

And after she had realized that what he had said was the truth, Athena had
turned towards her fellow space-pilot, took a deep breath and said, "I'm
sorry, Starbuck.It's just that ever since we've started our journey towards
Earth, I just couldn't help being a little jumpy."

Meanwhile, after the second Viper had finally gotten itself away from the
pursuing Cylons and made it back to the Galactica, both Adama and Tigh had
ran towards Apollo and Boomer and were relieved to discover that they were
both a-okay.

"What about Athena and Starbuck?" asked a curious Adama, after he had placed
his gentle hand on his son's shoulder. "What happened to them?"

"The Cylons had shot at their Viper and they were forced to crash-land on a
nearby planet," answered Boomer, after he had taken a deep breath. "As a
matter of fact, we don't know if they're still alive or not."

And then, after he had given what Boomer had said some serious thought
and realized that the entire fleet has gotten itself into quite a nasty
situation, Adama had taken a deep breath and said, "In that case, the
first thing we need to do is to go to the planet bring Athena and
Starbuck back to the ship.After that, we must the fleet out of this
sector before the Cylons begin their attack."

"Commander, I would like to volunteer to go on the mission," said Tigh, after
he had taken one step towards the trio. "After all, I might be a few yahans
older than Starbuck is, but I could still be able to lead a successful rescue

And after he had realized that it would be better for Tigh to lead the
mission, Adama had looked at his old friend and said, "Alright, Tigh. Give
yourself a few centons to prepare and do the rest of us a favor. Keep a
close look-out for the Cylons."

Meanwhile, back on the planet, night has already fallen and it has caused
Starbuck to build a fire a few feet away from the damaged Viper just to keep
both him and Athena warm.

But then, after he had looked over at where Athena was standing and saw her
looking at the stars, Starbuck had walked over to her, placed his gentle
hands on her shoulders and said, "Look, Athena. Instead of just standing here
and freezing to death, why don't you come sit by my fire and get yourself

And then, after she had realized that it might be better for her to be warm,
the two Viper pilots had sat themselves in front of the fire and allowed it
to warm them both up, only to have them look at each other's eyes for a
minute or two and moved their closer to each other.

However, just as they were about to give each other a kiss on the lips,
Athena had moved her head away from Starbuck's and said, "Look, Starbuck. I
appreciate your inviting me to share your fire with you, but I really don't
think that we should be...!"

But then, just as she was about to say another word, Starbuck had placed the
tips of his fingers on Athena's lips and said, "No. You don't need to say
anything. You don't even need to be afraid.All you need to do is relax... and
enjoy it."

And with that, both Athena and Starbuck had kissed each other ever so
passionately on the lips, just before they've removed all of their clothes
and laid their nude bodies on the ground.

"Aaaahhhh, yes! That's it! Do it, Starbuck!" said Athena, after Starbuck had
started licking all over her body -- all the way down to her hot, wet pussy
and carressing her firm breasts. "Touch me! Touch me there!Suck my wet pussy
dry! Aaaahhhh!"

And then, at that exact moment, Athena had suddenly realized that she was
experiencing something that she hadn't experienced with anyone of her follow
Viper pilots before, for she was experiencing pure and untamed erotica -- and
enjoying every minute of it.

Just then, after Starbuck had placed his stiff cock inside Athena's asshole
and used each of his hands to carress both her breasts and pussy, she had
placed her gentle hands on his bare arms and yelled, "AAAAHHHH, YES! THAT'S

And then, after they've started moving harder and faster and their lovemaking
has reached its final battle against the entire fleet of Cylon base-ships,
the two marooned lovers had cum and collapsed due to exhaustion.

After they were both finally able to catch their breath, Athena had placed
her head on Starbuck's chest, let out a sigh and said, "Starbuck, would we
really be able to return to the Galactica and see all of our friends and
loved ones again?"

"As long as there's hope, Athena," answered a smiling Starbuck, after he
had placed his gentle hand on her head. "Because as long as there's hope,
anything could be possible."

And then, after both Athena and Starbuck had snuggled-up to each other and
fallen asleep within their naked arms, the evil Count Baltar was sitting on
his seat aboard the one Cylon base-ship looking as mad as hell and yelling,

"I'm afraid so, Count Baltar," answered the ever-loyal Lucifer. "As a matter
of fact, one of our spies aboard the Galatica has informed me that Commander
Adama has ordered Colonel Tigh to go on a rescue mission to a nearby planet,
where he has said that the other two Viper pilots might possibly be still

And then, after he had heard that little bit of news, Baltar had allowed a
sinister smile to appear on his devilish lips and said, "That spy has done
well, Lucifer! With those Viper pilots and their rescuers as our hostages,
the Galactica would have no other choice, but to surrender themselves for
their safe return! Deploy a group of warriors to the planet and have them
bring the prisoners back here alive!"

"By your command," said Lucifer, just before he had bowed his head and left
the room to go perform his task.

Just then, after the shuttle with the rescue party inside it had landed next
to the damaged Viper, Tigh, Apollo and Boomer had stepped out of the shuttle,
looked at the Viper and surrounding area and discovered that their lost
comrades had survived the crash-landing, causing Tigh to look at his two
junior officers and said, "Alright, you two. Let's split up and try to find
them. Apollo, you take the northern path. Boomer, you take the southern path.
I'll take the eastern path. Remember, we all meet back here at 200 centons
with or without Athena and Starbuck. Let's get going."

But then, after the three Colonial warriors had gone on their seperate paths
and began the search, a Cylon Raider had landed itself just a few feet away
from both the Viper and the shuttle.

"We shall now search for the humans and return them alive to our base-ship!"
said one of the Cylons, after all three of them had gotten themselves out of
their fighter. "By Baltar's command!"

Meanwhile, while the Cylons had started looking for the humans, Apollo had
discovered something on the ground in front of him.

That something was Starbuck's flight jacket and after it had became a sure
enough indication to Apollo that he was getting close to finding them, he had
picked up the jakcet and called, "ATHENA! STARBUCK! IT'S ME -- APOLLO! WE'RE

But then, after he had taken a few steps, something had leaped out of the
shadows, pushed Apollo down to the ground, picked up a rock and was about to
smash his skull in with it.

But just as the stranger was about to do that, he had taken a really good
look at his victim, tossed the rock away and said, "I'm sorry about that,
Apollo. We've thought that it was another Cylon trick."

And then, after he had realized that it Starbuck who had attacked him by
mistake and allowed Starbuck to help him back on his feet, a confused Apollo
had looked his two good friends and asked, "What made the both of you think
that it was another Cylon trick?"

"Well, Apollo. It was while we were looking for some food that we've spotted
a Cylon fighter heading towards the spot that we've crash-landed in,"
answered Star buck, after he had taken a deep breath. "After we've seen that,
we've figured that we should stay out of sight until they're gone."

And then, after he had heard what Starbuck had said and realized that they've
landed themselves right into an ambush, a wide-eyed Apollo had switched on
his com-link and said, "Boomer! Colonel Tigh! We've got a problem!"

"I know, Apollo. I know.", said Boomer, whose voice was coming over the
com-link. "I've heard some shots coming from the eastern path and ran to see
what was going on.Sure enough, I've discovered that a small group of Cylons
had taken Colonel Tigh prisoner. What should we do?"

But just as Apollo was about to answer that particular question, a smiling
Starbuck had placed his gentle hand on his good buddy's shoulder and said,
"You know, Apollo. I do believe that it's finally time for some payback.
Don't you agree?"

Just then, while the other two Cylons were keeping a watchful eye on their
prisoner with their weapons aimed at him, the Cylon leader had looked at Tigh
and said, "We demand to know where your colleagues are, Human!"

"I've already told you, you tin-plated piece of shit! I'm only hear on a
survey mission!" answered Tigh, who was actually buying the other Viper
pilots some time to come and rescue him. "And I'm also not from the

"You are indeed brave, Human!" said the Cylon leader, who was unaware that
the other Viper pilots were hiding the bushes and getting ready to spring
their little surprise on him and the other Cylons. "But you are also a liar!
Tell us where your colleagues are or we'll destroy you!"

But then, just as the Cylons were about to fire their lazer-blasters at Tigh,
Apollo, Bommer and Starbuck had sprung out of their hiding place and fired
their blasters at the Cylons, causing all of them to drop down to the ground
and allowing all of the humans to race back to the shuttle and zoom
themselves away from the planet and back to Galactica, just before the entire
fleet had started moving themselves out of that one sector of space.

Meanwhile, after the Galactica had led all of the other ships out of that
space sector and away from Baltar's Cylon base-ship, both Athena and Starbuck
were being examined by Doctor Salik in the Battlestar's sick-bay and found to
be in excellent health.

But after they've left the sick-bay and just before they've returned to their
normal duties, Athena had placed her gentle hand on Starbuck's chest, took a
deep breath and said, "Look, Starbuck. I really don't think we should let the
rest of the ship know about what had happened between us. Let's just keep the
whole thing to ourselves. Okay?"

And after he had let out a small smile, an understanding Starbuck had placed
his gentle hands on Athena's arms and answered, "To tell you the truth, I
don't see why not," just before they've given each other one more passionate
kiss on the lips.
