Great Mother of Artemis

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

"Great Mother of Artemis!" is an oath uttered by a shocked Saul Tigh when he is told of Admiral Cain's stripping of Pegasus's civilian fleet (TRS: "Resurrection Ship, Part I").


  • It is likely that this oath is similar to the Catholic exclamation "Holy Mary, Mother of God!"
  • In Greek mythology, Leto is the mother of the twins Artemis and Apollo. Leto was one of Zeus' many affairs outside of his marriage to Hera.
