The Communications Officer manages the main communications aboard a typical Colonial Forces ship. A communications officer's typical responsibilities include:
- Monitoring communications of a ship's incoming and out-going communications
- Monitoring fleet-wide communications from the command battlestar of a battlestar group or other fleet
- Ensuring all communications are properly logged
- Relaying communications to a battlestar's Vipers and Raptors during off-ship missions
- Managing other minor CIC operations in the absence of the Senior Officer of the Watch
Anastasia Dualla and Lieutenant Louis Hoshi are both communication officers. Petty Officer Sian fills in for Dualla during the episode "Sacrifice".
