The fleet's most talented, passionate and rebellious Viper pilot (callsign "Starbuck") has been burdened with post-traumatic confusion and anger from a lifetime of abuse, first at her mother's hands and later as a prisoner of the Cylon known as Leoben. Recently, her rocky but affectionate marriage to Sam Anders barely weathered her affair with Lee Adama. Then she became plagued by visions of a mandala — a strange swirling shape that had haunted her thoughts throughout her life. To the horror of all who cared about her, Kara plunged her Viper into a swirling planetary storm, where her Viper exploded. Months later, when the fleet stood on the brink of a calamitous battle with the Cylons, Kara made a seemingly miraculous return to life to announce that she has traveled to Earth — and that she can guide the fleet there.
