Fields of Elysium
From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guidepolytheistic religion of humans of the Twelve Colonies.
The Colonial belief holds that travel to Elysium is through a river and that, on its shores, their loved ones await their arrival.
In a vivid depiction experienced by Laura Roslin, she believes to see Emily Kowalski meet up with her family at the shores of Elysium when accompanying her on the ferry. Roslin also sees her own mother awaiting her, but Roslin backs away, saying that she's not ready to join her mother in the afterlife (TRS: "Faith").
