- For the planet of the same name, see: Zeus (planet).
Zeus (also known as Jupiter) is the first Lord of Kobol, from whom all other Lords apparently sprung. He is father to Apollo (TRS: "33", "The Hand of God") and, quite likely, to Athena as well (TRS: The Hand of God").
When they first meet, Tom Zarek plays on Lee Adama's call-sign, Apollo, by referring to Commander Adama as "Zeus" (TRS: "Bastille Day"). The allusion is repeated in "The Farm," after Zarek receives word that Adama survived Sharon "Boomer" Valerii's assassination attempt.
A Number Three receives a message from Zeus through the oracle Dodona Selloi that "all the Gods weep for you". The oracle then relays a message from the Cylon God to Three regarding the fate of Hera Agathon (TRS: "Exodus, Part I").
