|Chronological and political information|
"Wedge" was the callsign of a Viper pilot who served on the Battlestar Galactica. After the Galactica and the civilian fleet had fled the Twelve Colonies of Kobol following the assault on the planets by the Cylons, they were relentlessly pursued by Basestars for five days. The pursuing Cylon forces appeared every thirty-three minutes, forcing the fleet to constantly jump to avoid destruction, which also resulted in severe sleep deprivation amongst the crew of the Galactica as pilots were called upon to defend the fleet until the last civilian ship had jumped to safety. After the two hundredth and thirty-eighth jump, the Cylon forces did not appear, ostensibly because the Olympic Carrier had been left behind in the escape. With no pursuit forthcoming, Captain Lee "Apollo" Adama ordered a CAP of himself, Lieutenant Kara "Starbuck" Thrace, and Lieutenant Sharon "Boomer" Valerii's Raptor to begin patrolling the fleet, followed in three hours by Wedge, alongside Winger and T-Bone.

Behind the scenesEdit
- Presumably the character may have been inspired by Wedge Antilles of the original Star Wars trilogy.
