Big Spud

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

Big Spud is the nickname or "wireless code name" used by the Colonials for a large asteroid in the same field that the mining ship Majahual found an asteroid with extensive ore deposits (TRS: "Scar").


  • This may be an homage to the use of an actual potato by the special effects team during the asteroid belt scene in the movie The Empire Strikes Back.
