Sickbay (TRS: "The Captain's Hand").

The attending doctor in Galactica's sickbay is Doctor Sherman Cottle, but there are lab coat-wearing specialists, nurses and paramedics, such as Layne Ishay, Howard Kim and Sashon, to assist him.

The sickbay features the equipment of a basic small hospital (beds, stretchers, IV's), but is relatively spartan otherwise. It is also equipped with a machine similar to a magnetic resonance imaging scanner.

According to Lee Adama, the sickbay is also designed as a disaster shelter in the event of a ship catastrophe (TRS: "Valley of Darkness").

In addition to Rising Star, Galactica becomes part of the Fleet's ad hoc health services center, covering the gamut from abortions, cancer treatment, and pre-natal care (TRS: "The Plan", "Bastille Day", "Final Cut", "Sacrifice", "The Captain's Hand", "Faith").

Its final action is as a triage center during the Battle of the Colony (TRS: "Daybreak, Part II").

Med Lab

Gaius Baltar with innumerable trays of blood samples from various persons in the Fleet, all for testing via the Cylon detector (TRS: "Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down").

Galactica features a medical lab outfitted with scientific equipment, including blood testing. Gaius Baltar is later provisioned this lab for work on the Cylon detector. The lab directly connects to the morgue, where Baltar uses samples from the copy of Leoben Conoy found aboard Ragnar Anchorage (TRS: "Litmus", "Six Degrees of Separation", "Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down").

The lab itself is located in the starboard forward section of the ship (TRS: "Six Degrees of Separation").


William Adama opens a morgue drawer containing the husk of Leoben Conoy (TRS: "Flesh and Bone").

Galactica's morgue is accessible through the med lab (TRS: "Flesh and Bone", "The Farm", "Sacrifice").

Following the discovery of humanoid Cylons, the husk for the Ragnar Anchorage copy of Leoben Conoy is stowed here (TRS: "Flesh and Bone"), later joined by the husk of Sharon "Boomer" Valerii following her death by Callandra Henderson (TRS: "Resistance", "Sacrifice").
