Boxey is a fictional male in the Battlestar Galactica series. The character was portrayed on screen by Noah Hathaway. Boxey is the name of the child of Serina, the love interest of Capt. Apollo in the original television series. His character appears at the end of the mini-series but doesn't return for the full re-imagined television series.
After Serina is killed, Apollo becomes the custodian and father for the newly orphaned child. Boxey is usually seen with his pet Muffet, a walking robotic dog that was created as a replacement for his own pet which died on Caprica.
Boxey does have a habit of sneaking about and getting into situations where he should be. When Apollo and Lt. Starbuck are called upon to break into the Cylon base on the Ice planet, Boxey and Muffit sneak into the vehicle transporter.
The first original series of Battlestar Galactica only lasted one series. When the series came back, there were new characters and one of those was Capt. Troy. It is revealed that Capt. Troy is Boxey in later years.
