Battlestar Galactica's Unnamed Characters
This page lists all original series Battlestar Galactica characters who were never named either on screen or by any of the show's creatives.
The scope of this article is limited to characters who have either an on-screen credit or had an important interaction with a major character. For instance, the woman on the Gemini telling Iblis of how having two tallon plants would be a miracle enough would be notable, while the man falling off the roof during the Cylon attack on Caprica wouldn't.
An unnamed man served as a deckhand on the Battlestar Galactica at the time of the Battle of Cimtar and the Fall of the Twelve Colonies of Man. When Starbuck's Viper was damaged and came in for a crashlanding, he pulled Athena away from being hurt by the oncoming fighter.
- This deckhand was portrayed by Bruce Wright in "Saga of a Star World", who would later portrayed a Council Security guard lieutenant in "Lost Planet of the Gods, Part I" and "Baltar's Escape and Corporal Lomas in "The Man With Nine Lives".
An unnamed man served as a Colonial Warrior on the Battlestar Galactica at the time of the Fall of the Twelve Colonies of Man. When the Fleet reached Carillon, he was on the surface in the chancery at the same time as an unnamed woman and her friend Answaw were visiting. Stepping into an elevator to head to their accommodations, it seemingly malfunctioned and sent them to the lowest level where he and the others were captured by the Ovions where they could be fed to their young.

When the Fleet reached Carillon, he was on the surface in the chancery at the same time as Cassiopeia. Both would step into an elevator to head to their accommodations, where he flirted with the socialator who was feeling dejected after an argument with Starbuck, it seemingly malfunctioned and sent them to the lowest level where he and Cassiopeia were captured by the Ovions where they could be fed to their young. Apollo and Starbuck would later rescue Cassiopeia but was too late to save the Warrior.
- This Warrior, credited as Second Warrior, was portrayed by Geoffrey Binney in "Saga of a Star World".
An unnamed man served as a Colonial Warrior on the Battlestar Galactica at the time of the Fall of the Twelve Colonies of Man. During the battle near Cimtar, he flew wing with Starbuck. He would survive and return to Galactica, where he served as a patrol for the Carillon mission upon reaching the planet to resupply.
Sometime after the Battle of Gamoray, he flew with Bojay's Silver Spar Squadron alongside Jolly when they encountered the Ships of Light and were subsequently taken by the beings. He would later be returned to Galactica after Count Iblis was banished.

Boomer, a guest commentator, comments to Zed that he does not want to second question his calls in the game, despite the unnecessary roughness he exhibits against Starbuck during the game. However, this Officiator later makes a call on Ortega's foul against Starbuck for "unnecessary blocking" during the game, and allows Starbuck a free shot against the other team's hoop. Later he ejects both Ortega and Starbuck from the game, which leads to a confrontation between the two Warriors near the turboshowers (TOS: "Murder on the Rising Star").
- The officiator was portrayed by Ted Noose.
After the discovery of Carillon as a possible safe haven, he accompanied Uri to the chancery and was enjoying a meal and drink while his counterpart spoke of the possibly of settling on the planet within earshot of Apollo and Serina. The man was later at the Council session when Adama was informed of Uri's proposition of surrendering to the Cylons and destroy their arms. When the commander left the session in disgust, he spoke with Anton about placing this decision to the people of the Fleet. The statesman would later be with the rest of the Council during the planned ceremony in the chancery when it was discovered by the Warriors of the Ovion/Cylon plans for humanity ("Saga of a Star World").
- The statesman, identified by this title in the end credits, was portrayed by Norman Stuart in "Saga of a Star World" and "War of the Gods, Part I" and "Part II". In the novelization, the scene on Carillon with Uri identified him as Councillor Lobe of Piscera, though it is unclear if this was canon.
When Count Iblis was discovered and brought back to the fleet, the Sire was initially skeptical of the mysterious being, as was Commander Adama and expressed surprise when the visitor was already aware of the Council's decisions despite only just being made. When Baltar surrendered to the Colonials, the statesman passed the judgement on the traitor to be imprisoned aboard the Prison Barge for a life sentence. He then lead the push for Count Iblis to be named to the Council Presidency, though agreed to adjourn the meeting at Adama's request for a time. Ultimately, Iblis' true identity was revealed and he left the fleet ("War of the Gods, Part I", "War of the Gods, Part II").
- The statesman was portrayed by John Williams in "War of the Gods" two-partner. In the novelization, his lines are attributed to an individual named Sire Montrose, though it is unclear if this was canon.
