Cole "Stinger" Taylor is a character from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series.
Stinger is a humorless officer who believes that Galactica officers are inferior, like many other Pegasus crew members. He also believes that Lee "Apollo" Adama was given the position of CAG because of his father, Admiral Adama.
In the episode "Pegasus", Apollo is transferred to the Pegasus, and Stinger assigns him to pilot a Raptor for the reconnaissance mission of the Cylon fleet. His plan involves taking pictures within a magneto-tail of a moon to hide the DRADIS signature of the Raptor. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace is taken off the mission when she says that Stinger's plan "sucks" and recommends using the Blackbird to get closer to the fleet. She then disobeys his order and goes does the mission herself. Later, when Admiral Cain sees the pictures from the Blackbird, she promotes Starbuck to Captain and makes her the new Pegasus CAG. Cain said that she wants a CAG with "guts".
