Capt. Apollo Quotes in Battlestar Galactica (1978)
Capt. Apollo Quotes:
Capt. Apollo: No way those guys can outfight us without a 10-to-1 margin.
Lieutenant Zac: Apollo, better look at your scanner.
[a solid wall of Cylon raiders is chasing them]
Capt. Apollo: No, but 1,000-to-1, that's not fair.
Lieutenant Zac: What does it mean?
Capt. Apollo: It means there isn't going to be any peace! There may not be much of anything if we don't warn the fleet!
Capt. Apollo: The Nova of Madagon is not a nova at all, but a starfield so bright, our cockpits will be sealed to prevent blindness. We'll navigate by scanners and clear everything out of our path with turbo lasers. Are you feeling alright, Starbuck? You're fidgeting around like a daggit on a sunspot.
Lt. Starbuck: Well, it's my bio-pulse-line, sir. You see, it's a bad time for me to be cooped up in a cockpit.
Lt. Boomer: Starbuck's being polite... since he got a steam burn.
Capt. Apollo: I don't think I want to ask you how you got it, because I need you on this mission. I didn't choose you to help lead us through without a great deal of anguish. But if it'll do any good, let me assure you that should we fail... no one will survive. The rest of our friends must sit in anticipation of our skill.
Lt. Starbuck: Or lack thereof...
Lt. Boomer: What if we miss a mine?
Capt. Apollo: One of us will be the first to know. Let's go.
Woman on Duty: Section 12, launch bay alpha, stand by to launch fighter probe.
Capt. Apollo: Acknowledged. Input recorded and functioning.
Woman on Duty: Vector coordinates coded and transferred, acknowledge?
Capt. Apollo: Acknowledged. Ready to launch.
Woman on Duty: Core systems, transferring control to probe craft, launch when ready.
Boxey: Can I fly in your ship, sir?
Capt. Apollo: Fighter planes are no place for little boys.
Serina: They're going to have to be if our people are going to survive. We must fight back.
Cmdr. Adama: Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.
