An illustration of the City of the Gods
Ruins of the Opera House

The City of the Gods was the central city on the planet Kobol in ancient times, said to be the birthplace of mankind and the place where the "gods and man lived in paradise" before the exodus of the thirteen tribes.

The remains of the city are seen by Boomer and Crashdown when they come across Kobol during a Raptor reconnaissance mission (Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part I).

During a review of the images of the city, Laura Roslin has a vision of the city when it was still inhabited, seeing the Forum and the Opera House (Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part I).

These events lead her to the conclusion that the scriptures and the legends are true, and that - as foretold by Leoben Conoy - Kobol will be a stepping stone to Earth (Flesh and Bone).

Realizing that the Arrow of Apollo and the Tomb of Athena may be the key to discovering Earth, Roslin persuades Kara Thrace to take a captured Cylon Raider back to Caprica to retrieve the Arrow, rather than preparing the fighter for an attack on a Cylon basestar orbiting Kobol (Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part I).
