Allan Nowart is a Marine on Galactica. He is Omar Fischer's replacement as Sergeant of the Guard.

Following the Second Exodus from New Caprica, Nowart spectates from the ringside during the boxing match between Galen Tyrol and William Adama, and the final bout between Kara Thrace and Lee Adama (TRS: "Unfinished Business").

With fellow Marine Henry Cheadle, Nowart provides security in Dogsville, where they witness Karl Agathon's arrest of Michael Robert (TRS: "The Woman King"). Nowart and Cheadle are subsequently tasked with protecting Gaius Baltar's lawyer, Romo Lampkin. Though Cheadle is killed by Aaron Kelly's bomb, Nowart manages to successfully protect Lampkin until the trial (TRS: "The Son Also Rises").

When Kara Thrace unexpectedly returns from the dead, Nowart and fellow NCO Sergeant Brandy Harder are assigned to escort her through Galactica. Both are incapacitated when Thrace takes Laura Roslin hostage (TRS: "He That Believeth In Me").

Nowart does take part in Felix Gaeta's mutiny, but is less than fully committed to it, and permits Adama and Saul Tigh to escape his custody. Adama and Tigh take him hostage, but later permit him to escape, although he narrowly avoids being shot in the back by Kara Thrace (TRS: "The Oath").

Nowart continues to serve after the mutiny, and answers Adama's call for volunteers to rescue Hera Agathon (TRS: "Daybreak, Part I").

As part of Lee Adama's Alpha Team, Nowart boards the Colony (he is the Marine who informs Lee that the Colony interior is pressurized) to rescue young Agathon. Despite heavy resistance, he returns to Galactica alive. It is unknown whether or not he survives after rejoining fireteams to repel the Cylon boarders (TRS: "Daybreak, Part II").


  • Nowart's first name, Allan, is confirmed by cast listing pages from two scripts, "The Woman King" and "The Son Also Rises."
  • Prior to the events of the last half of Season 4, Edward James Olmos stated at the 2008 Dragon*Con that Nowart will have a major role in the last episodes of the series.[1]
  • Corrigan appeared in Season 2 as a crew member who rushes Louanne Katraine to sickbay in "Final Cut" and as a Pegasus pilot during a briefing in "The Captain's Hand." These aforementioned appearances neither confirm nor deny correlation with the character Nowart. Aside from this notation, Battlestar Wiki does not integrate these appearances into the proper biography of this character.
