Tom Zarek was a political activist for more than 30 years before the Fall of the Twelve Colonies — a charismatic, eloquent and ideological political agitator who was incarcerated for destroying a government building on Sagittaron. His incarceration culminated in a trip on the Astral Queen, a FTL-capable prison ship; Zarek was under consideration for parole at the time of the Cylon attack.
