Are we not allowed to cite the script for the Caprica pilot? He's in it, it's not just IMDB. -- Noneofyourbusiness 04:35, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

What is the purported origin of this script? Is there a particular reference copy that all comments and criticism could be directed to, and can its authenticity be verified? We have various articles that cite portions of the early miniseries script hosted on TwizTV, but my memory is that RDM released said document prior to filming in order to gauge fan response, in which case we would at least have an official source to pin it on (incidentally, that could do with some verification - surely there must be a news article from early 2003 discussing the script draft?) --April Arcus 09:37, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
The script can be seen here: It's very obviously legitimate. -- Noneofyourbusiness 15:00, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I don't see why we shouldn't add info from the script (in spoiler tags, of course). Ausir 15:26, 19 January 2009 (UTC)


It may have been slipped a little in dialogue and I missed it, but does Sam go by the Adams as his brother and that side of the family, or does he keep it as Adama? Given his attitude and all, I assume the latter, but I'd like to know for fact. --Mars 14:07, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Sexual orientation

Is he gay? It's not THAT important but it would make the Ha'la'tha a very unusual criminal organization if they would accept gays in. He mentions in Rebirth he went to the Tauron area of the city, when he was young, to "desperately flirt with a guy". Am I missing something? I listened again and the subtitles say the same thing. -- Opidus 17:42, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

To answer your question: yes, he is a homosexual and (later on) we find out that he's actually married (IIRC). However, sexuality is treated differently on the Colonies than on present day Earth. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 18:33, 30 January 2010 (UTC)


I added some info that I found about Sam's tattoos onto the page. However, I am unsure if the way I added this information is the best way to incorporate the info to the article. So I am leaving a note here in case someone has a better suggestion on how to incorporate the information into the page.

Here's the link to the article the info came from: 'Caprica' producer Jane Espenson explains Sam Adama's tattoos --JoyaOscura 03:27, 27 March 2010 (UTC)


The article should be "Samuel Adama", should it not? We have Lee as "Leland Adama", and he, in contrast, has only been called that once. -- Noneofyourbusiness 14:27, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Sounds reasonable to me, and with "Samuel" being used on screen more often than "Leland," it's even more appropriate here. -- BlueResistance 20:45, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Why Sam not wears a wedding ring? -- Lunart 13:44, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Taurons are a tattoo oriented culture, and as such use their tattoos as wedding bands. See this article for more info, or the notes section of the Samuel Adama article. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 17:48, 10 June 2011 (EDT)
