Forum

A drawing of the City of the Gods in the Sacred Scrolls. The Forum is the large dome structure at the top.

The Forum was an ancient human structure located in the City of the Gods, on ancient Kobol.

After the exodus from Kobol and the establishment of the Twelve Colonies, a second Forum was built on Caprica, either in Delphi or Caprica City.

It is not clear if the Forum was religious in nature (perhaps a temple to the Lords of Kobol), governmental, or simply a civic gathering place. Laura Roslin describes it as a large dome-like structure with a colonnade of pillars surrounding it (Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part I).

Other structures on Kobol that might be mirrored on Caprica include the Opera House and the Temple.

Notes

  • On real-world Earth, a forum was the public space in the middle of a Roman city.
