Kataris

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide
A surviving copy of A Poet's Dream by Kataris.

Kataris was a well-known Caprican poet. Lieutenant Palladino owns a bound edition of A Poet's Dream, a collection of Kataris' poems, and threatens Colonel Tigh with lines from one:

From the darkness you must fall
Failed and weak, to darkness all.

Kara Thrace recognizes the quotation, recalls from which piece it comes, and knows the poem's quality relative to the poet's other works. D'Anna Biers identifies Palladino's copy of one of Kataris' books on sight in a recording she is editing (TRS: "Final Cut").

Notes

  • The name "Kataris" is a likely reference to the Roman poet Catullus.
