Additional Information

Sire Geller is a member of the Council of Twelve, leading the members in protesting the policies of Adama at the time Michael, Sarah, and their children from Terra are brought aboard. At the time, he was very vocal and influential member, albeit is embarrassed publicly in front of the entire Fleet for the loss of the Terrans' ship.

Geller isn't fond of Lieutenant Starbuck and Captain Apollo either , likely due to their loyalty to Adama (TOS: "Greetings from Earth").


  • Geller's absence from the next episode "Baltar's Escape" is unknown, though it's speculated he was either ejected from the Council or left due to embarrassment over the situation with the encounter from fleeing Terrans. The actual reason may have more to do with the scheduling of actor Murray Matheson, as the script for "Baltar's Escape" features Geller; instead, the newly created Sire Domra takes his place in the aired episode.
  • Murray Matheson was the voice of Specter in "The Young Lords", though is not credited as such in the episode.
