Baxter Sarno is a Caprica-based comedian and late night talk show host of Backtalk with Baxter Sarno. Sarno's major audience consists primarily of teenagers and college students. He is seen as anti-corporate, and he is a staunch critic of the holoband technology and the moral decline he perceives coming from its use (CAP: "Reins of a Waterfall" and "False Labor").

Other than a scathing joke about his "first and third marriages" and a passing reference to a niece named Candice, details about his personal life are unknown (CAP: "Gravedancing" and "Apotheosis").

Noteworthy Involvement in Caprican Society

After Amanda Graystone's ill-conceived declaration that Zoe Graystone was one of the bombers of the Maglev commuter train, he makes comical critiques and opines on the Graystones and their brand, in particular the said holoband technology. This forces Daniel Graystone to make his first ever appearance on the show to shift the blame from the holoband to his daughter. Sarno is pleasantly surprised when Daniel (with his wife, Amanda) declares that Graystone Industries will offer open access to the holoband technology and virtual world licensing, in addition to noting that any proceeds from sales of said technology will be donated to a charity fund (CAP: "Gravedancing").

Sarno later hosts Daniel's chief rival, Tomas Vergis, on the show. After gratefully receiving a gift of Tauron cigars from his guest, Sarno's interview leads to the revelation that Vergis intends to become a citizen of Caprica (CAP: "Know Thy Enemy").

Several years after these events, Sarno conducts a special interview in the Graystone Estate with Daniel about the unprecedented popularity of Cylons in Caprican society (CAP: "Apotheosis").
