MAGLEV Bombing

The MAGLEV bombing was a terrorist attack perpetrated on MAGLEV Train 23 in Caprica City on Maius 7, 42YR.


Over five-hundred people were killed and one-hundred were injured when Soldiers of the One sympathizer Ben Stark detonated a bomb in the crowded train. Among the deceased are his girlfriend, Zoe Graystone, who is the daughter of Cylon creator Daniel Graystone, and Joseph Adama's wife Shannon and daughter Tamara. ("Pilot")

It is not known if Stark acted alone or under orders from someone higher up in the monotheistic cult. Clarice Willow tells Lacy Rand that Ben did something premature. Ben's best friend, Keon Gatwick, built the parts used for the bomb, but he did not know Ben was going to use them to blow up the train. Barnabas Greeley, the leader of a more violent STO cell in Caprica City, has knowledge of these events and may have given the order. ("Pilot") ("Know Thy Enemy")


Abasi Lowe states in the sports commentary at the Buccaneers versus Stallions pyramid game, "Daniel Graystone, owner of the Bucs, and his wife, Dr. Amanda Graystone, waving from their box, acknowledging the crowd. Their daughter, of course, one of the tragic victims of the MAGLEV bombing that happened in the city exactly one month ago tomorrow." ("Rebirth")

The date on the memorial event invitation sent to Joseph Adama's household is Junius 7. Therefore, the bombing occurred on Maius 7. ("Rebirth")
