Aurora (ship)

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Aurora is a civilian ship in the Fleet, likely named after the Colonial Goddess of the Dawn.

Emily Kowalski offers Laura Roslin a scarf made by Leslie Starus, a resident on that ship (TRS: "Faith").


  • First mentioned on the voting tally board on Galactica and Colonial One in "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II," its origins go back to an early script of "Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down" when a radio interview that Baltar was listening to had a caller from Aurora.
  • In both Roman and Colonial mythology, Aurora is the goddess of the dawn. In Roman mythology itself, Aurora is the counterpart of the Greek Eos.
