Additional Information

Gemenon Traveler is a heavy cargo transport in the Fleet, notable for its presence of another humanoid Cylon, a copy of Leoben Conoy who escaped to this ship during the Fall of the Twelve Colonies (TRS: "Flesh and Bone", "The Plan").

Ten days after the attack on the Colonies, Conoy had managed to crack the military wireless transmissions. Seventeen days after the attacks, shortly after the announcement that Cylons look like humans, two marines were handing pictures of Aaron Doral and Conoy to passengers onboard. After overhearing the marines, Conoy passed two civilians who then ran into the Marines and said they just saw him. Conoy was forced into hiding.

Twenty-four days after the attacks, Conoy had conversed with Brother Cavil about his belief in Kara Thrace following the capture of a Cylon Raider eight days earlier. The conversation was cut short when Conoy was captured (TRS: "The Plan").

Twenty-five days after the attacks, Gemenon Traveler's captain contacted President Laura Roslin about Conoy. She then ordered Commander William Adama to send Lieutenant Kara Thrace to subsequently interrogate the Cylon, who Roslin had airlocked (TRS: "Flesh and Bone").

The ship's name was present on the voting tally boards on Galactica and Colonial One (TRS: "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II").


  • In "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II," the ship's name is spelled as Gemenon Traveller on the voting boards aboard Galactica and Colonial One.
  • The ship was first named in production for vessels that eventually became Kimba Huta (TRS: "The Farm") and Thera Sita (TRS: "The Passage"). But when "Flesh and Bone" was released, the Gemenon Traveler was redesigned with a greenish hull and the engines where grafted to the hull. It had not made another appearance throughout the entire series until "The Plan".
  • A modified version of this craft is featured in the Original Series' Dynamite Entertainment comic books, introduced in Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #6 as the pleasure liner Ariadna.
  • The interior where Thrace interrogates Conoy is a modification of the Armistice Station meeting area seen briefly in the Miniseries.
