Graham Beckel (Col. Jack Frisk)

Graham Beckel


Actor Name:  Graham Beckel

Character Name:  Colonel Jack Fisk

Episode Appearances:  Guest Star on the episodes "Pegasus", "Resurrection Ship (Parts1 & 2)", "Black Market".

Character Bio:  Colonel Jack Fisk is first introduced to us as the XO of the Pegasus under Admiral Cain. He first appears to be a jolly fellow with a fondness for liquor much like his counterpart on the Galactica. However, we see that Fisk is not as jaded or burned out as Tigh is. He was still a duty-bound soldier, loyal to his superiors and to his crew, within reason. This loyalty seems less out of camaraderie with people, but more out of respect for the uniform itself. Examples of this trend are seen when he disrupts an unwarranted assault on Helo and Tyrol (then prisoners in Cain's brig) but agrees with the stance of the soldiers that assaulted them. As a result, the assailants go free. He is loyal to Admiral Cain, but proceeds to disclose to Tigh (on two separate occasions) how Admiral Cain committed atrocities leading to the deaths of civilians for her own cause. He willfully participates in Cain's scheme to assassinate Adama, yet he is visibly relieved as he laughs aloud when the "Execute Condition Orange" command never comes.

Colonel Fisk continued to serve the Pegasus and the Colonial Fleet even after the death of Cain, up until he is found dead in his quarters, murdered by Phelan, ring leader of the Black Market scandal.
