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

Dr. Stoffa is a member of the Fleet.

Dr. Cottle, aboard Galactica, asks Daniel Novacek, boarding a Raptor, to have Dr. Stoffa contact Cottle after Novacek arrived as his destination (TRS: "Hero").


  • Before the episode "Hero", no information was available on the availability of another physician aside from Doctor Cottle. While never explicitly stated, many people assumed from Cottle's off-ship duties (TRS: "Scattered"), that he is the only physician in the Fleet. Stoffa could be a physician from Pegasus, but based on the context of Cottle's dialogue and the nature of Novacek's ordeal, Stoffa may be a clinical psychologist and not a medical doctor.
