Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Season 1 - Episode 1

Talented but cocky pilot William Adama graduates from the Academy and signs up to join the crew of the newly built Galactica. Much to his disappointment, he is assigned not to a Viper fighter but to a Raptor transport ship named Weasel. He meets his surly co-pilot Coker Fasjovik, who is cynical and interested only in leaving the military, as his tour of duty ends in a month. Coker finds Adama's eagerness irritating. The two are briefed on their first mission together, a routine "milk run" sending cargo to the Scorpia Fleet Shipyards and returning with supplies for the Galactica. It is a four-day trip during which they are to avoid enemy contact of any kind.
