    I beleive it was a choice to just let him disappear. They had plans for him, but things went in a different direction, so he just disappeared during the first season. I beleive it's in Ron Moore's podcasts on some of those episodes and it's also referenced in his blogs on the sci-fi channel website.

    The only people that care about Boxy are fans of the original BSG. Those of us that have only watch this "modern" version don't care about Boxy.

    The modern Boxey isn't even that "adorable." He was reimagined as a bratty, sullen teenager. I guess they have surfer dudes in space too.

    I don't remember seeing any kid on the show. Maybe I should go back and watch it all again.

    I've read some stuff about the character on the old version, and...I'm definitely glad the axed him.

    He was in the miniseries when Boomer rescued Baltar, who took the seat of Helo aboard the Raptor. Boxey hung out with Boomer for a while. They showed him at the card table once. He was also in the pilots' briefing room another time with Boomer. Col. Tigh walked in and said something to him, like "Where's your mother?" Boxey said something along the lines of "Where's yours?" He looked like a slacker dude and didn't have many lines. I'm not sure if he showed up in the series at all.

    Maybe some fan site will create a "Where's Boxey?" feature, similar to those "Where's Waldo?" books.

    Surfer Dudes in Space...Maybe that's another series Sci-Fi should look into.

    Nah, those of us who watched the old show AND the new show are glad he (Boxy) is gone.

    And we are glad there are no Daggets!

    Oops! I didn't finish my post.

    I was responding to the person who said it was 'way before her time'.

    I was telling her that 'thanks for making me feel old'.

    Where are any kids anywhere, there just aren't any and there should be at least one popping up surely.

    The kid was so annoying.

    There are a lot of deleted scenes with him in them actually.

    And to "where are the kids?"
    Think about it... I'll give you a second.

    It's a battlestar people. A kid doesn't belong on a battlestar. And this isn't Star Trek:TNG. It isn't a family exploration vessel. It is a war ship. A kid has no place being aboard.

    Sure there are kids popping up... in the civilian fleet. The battlestar crews are there to fight and protect the fleet. The fleet's job is to procreate like crazy. We won't be seeing many kids in the show unless they start focusing on the civilians more.

    Well thankfully Boxey is written off. As an X-School bus driver. these days i noticed Children do not respect their elders Must be the Beavis and butthead mentallity of their upbringing. But most parents these days are both working and the kids are raised on TV. So when they see beavis and butthead and bart simpson and many more be talk backative to older folks they think its ok. I can tell you of many spirted youngsters i had to put in their place on the Bus. I didnt take no poop from them or their parents who in their ignorance was to blame for their offspring.
    But like the 'Doc' said On the battlestars you wont see kids cause they dont belong their but in the fleet they are around. If you recall the Blackmarket Episode Apollo's call girl had one. and there were others locked in the closet with her at the end.
    But I got to question the Thinking behind Roslins decree of banning abortion. If I were in their shoes, Living their lives in space would I want to bring New life into that existence? I would not care to. But they are human and the need for Physical contact will out weigh the Birthcontrol perspective. But could you imagine if she went as far as to outlaw birthcontrol? Somebody would get assinated.
