For the canonical character from which this character is based, see: Troy (1980).

Troy "Boxey" Adama is the adopted son of former Flight Captain Apollo and the biological son of Serina; his grandfather, Commander Adama, outlived both his parents. During his childhood years, he was known as Boxey, which inevitably became his callsign.

By 1980 C.E., he became a Warrior and flew patrols that he believed were worthless as during his life as a Warrior, neither he nor his wingman, Dillon, encounter Cylons. To cope with the boredom and conditions in the Fleet, Troy seeks refuge in ambrosia and often drinks while on patrol, much to Dillon's chagrin. Troy and Dillon appear to have an odd relationship, as Dillon is responsible and "by-the-book" in his approach as a Warrior.

During a patrol in 1980, Troy and Dillon recover the Voyager spacecraft launched by NASA several Earth years prior. After Doctor Gaius Zee deciphers the golden disc on Voyager, they find the location of Earth and discover its inhabitants to be primitive and unable to repel a Cylon invasion, should one occur. Troy and Dillon are dispatched as scouts prior to Commander Adama's ill-advised appearance over the White House in Washington, D.C. (Galactica 1980 1).

After Galactica's debris fall over Washington, D.C., Troy and Dillion land to determine if Adama survived the attack. As Adama and Dillion extract Adama's body from the debris, they encounter soldiers from the United States Army. During the altercation, Dillon is mortally wounded and Troy returns fire, incapacitating a solider until the soldiers are forced to retreat due to the radiation. Before Dillion dies, he tells Troy to forgive their Earth brothers, for they are only human (Galactica 1980 2).

Fleeing from the site, Troy later encounters Doctor Felix Mortinson, who speaks Caprican albeit roughly, and with Mortinson's help bring Adama to meet with President Jimmy Carter. After initial resistance from Carter, Adama is able to secure the American's assistance against the Cylon forces and orders the Colonial Fleet to stand down from their invasion of Earth (Galactica 1980 3).

As the Cylons begin their own attack—lead by Baltar and Lucifer—Adama devises a plan to use nuclear warheads against the Cylon basestars, as they are susceptible to this technology. Troy objects when Adama takes Troy's Viper, however Adama doesn't give him any choice in the matter. With the initial Cylon invasion thwarted, Adama dead in a suicide run on Baltar's basestar, Doctor Zee killed, and a majority of the Colonial Fleet destroyed in the battle, Troy assumes the mantle of the leader of the Colonials. Establishing a rapport with a reporter, Ms. Hamilton (alternate), Troy begins to learn English and helps the Thirteenth Tribe create a new battlestar, Adama (Galactica 1980 4).
