Battlestar Galactica's Unnamed Characters

This page lists all characters in the Re-imagined Series' who are people of the Twelve Colonies first seen outside of the Fleet that remain unnamed.


Caprica Doctor

Roslin's doctor delivers bad tidings before being nuked.

Before leaving for Galactica, Laura Roslin is given her terminal cancer prognosis by a doctor who apparently practices in Caprica City. He is presumed dead after a 50 megaton range detonation is inflicted during the Cylon attack (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

The role credited as "Caprica Doctor" was played by Tim Henry.

Caprican refugees

Main article: Caprican refugees

Among a larger group of refugees finding Karl Agathon's and Sharon Valerii's Raptor somewhere in the countryside near Caprica City, are a man who tries to bribe his way aboard, a forgetful older woman who almost misses that she won a ticket to leave, and a desperate man who futilely clings to the ship's hull as it takes off and is shot by Agathon. It is likely that the refugees who stay on Caprica (except Agathon, who carries anti-radiation medication), eventually succumb to radiation poisoning[1] (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

Bribing man

Bribing man

The bribing man[2] is a man with a lot of money at his disposal who tries to escape the bombing of Caprica.

He offers 50,000 cubits to Agathon as a bribe to get him and his wife on board. Agathon refuses his offer as well as that of another man (off-screen) who counters with 60,000 cubits. The man's lottery number is not picked, and he and his wife are left behind on Caprica.

The "bribing man" is portrayed by actor Zahf Paroo.

Lady with glasses

"I forgot my glasses. I must have left them somewhere."

An unnamed elderly lady with glasses[3] asks fellow refugee Gaius Baltar to help read her lottery number as she cannot find her glasses, not realizing that her glasses are resting safely on top of her head.

The woman has the final selected number, "47".[4] Baltar hesitates to answer the old woman, as if he was considering switching his number for hers, when Agathon calls for him to approach.

Fearing that Agathon knows something about his involvement in the Cylon attack, Baltar claims not to have done anything wrong, points out that the old woman has the lucky number, and escorts her to the front of the crowd and to the Raptor. Agathon chooses to give his seat up for Baltar, believing his scientific mind would be more helpful to mankind's survival (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

The "lady with glasses" is portrayed by actress Brenda McDonald.

Desperate man

Desperate man

An extremely agitated and desperate man[5] questions Valerii's right to choose the last three people who can board the ship to escape the planet. Valerii solves the problem by initiating a lottery.

Unfortunately, the man's number is not picked. Increasingly desperate, the man jumps atop the Raptor's pontoon as it lifts off, trying to get inside. Agathon is forced to shoot the man after unheeded warnings, mortally wounding him (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

The desperate man was played by Mike Mitchell. Mitchell, whose role here was uncredited, was Stunt Coordinator for the Miniseries, Season 1 and two episodes of Season 2 of the Re-imagined Series.

Woman with Boxey

A woman with Boxey comes across Raptor 312 along with a group of survivors, and tearfully sends Boxey off when the children are permitted to board the Raptor. Gaius Baltar is behind her in the crowd, raising his hand to be chosen.

After the lottery, she clings to the bribing man, neither having been chosen (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

The woman, credited as Woman #1, was played by Erin Karpluk.

Chantara's baby

Chantara's baby before he's slain by Caprica-Six.

Chantara's baby, a male appearing to be under 1 year of age, is slain by Caprica-Six after she breaks the child's neck. Caprica's reasons for doing so have never been revealed, although she tells the baby that he'll have no reason to cry for much longer, having likely already decided to kill him. As she walks away, she appears torn over having done that deed. Given Caprica's personality, she may have done it to spare him from having to go through the coming cataclysm (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

Chantara's baby is uncredited.

Chantara's husband

Chantara's husband waves his wife over to his location.

Chantara's husband is seen shopping the Riverwalk Market a day prior to the fall of the Colonies. He distracts Chantara by waving his wife over to his position, allowing Six the opportunity to break his son's neck and walk away (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

Chantara's husband was portrayed by Michael Soltis.

Junior Reporter

A junior reporter for 7 News reports on the Fall of the Twelve Colonies the morning of from somewhere near the Riverwalk. As Gaius Baltar watches this report from his living room, the reporter is struck by a shock wave before his transmission is severed.

The role was portrayed by Fred Keating.

Unnamed Lover

Caprica-Six ejects a lover in the bed of Gaius Baltar on the morning of zero hour. When the unnamed woman asks, "Gaius, who is this woman?", Baltar equivocates in his typical manner when he is caught in a lie. The woman gathers her clothes and leaves, and likely perishes in the Cylon attack minutes later.

The role, which is credited as "Blonde Woman" despite the fact that she's not blonde, was portrayed by Moneca Delain.


Armistice Officer

Main article: Armistice Officer

The Armistice Station Officer was assigned to the Armistice Station, where he would represent the Twelve Colonies to attempt their continuation of diplomatic relations between the exiled Cylons and humans.

The Armistice Officer was portrayed by actor Ryan Robbins, who later portrays Charlie Connor in several episodes of the third and fourth seasons.

Terrified Man

A Gemenese man captured by the Cylons for experimentation.

A terrified man hailing from Gemenon is encountered by William Adama after he is forced down on an unnamed ice planet during Operation Raptor Talon in the first Cylon War. According to this man, he and 49 others were captured by the Cylons after they captured their transport, Diana. Adama tries to free him and another woman, but fails to do so and is forced to abandon them when the structure starts falling apart due to ground quakes.

He is presumed dead after the Guardian basestar lifts off from the surface, since the structure began collapsing upon the basestar's launch from the planet ("Razor", "Razor Flashbacks").

The "Terrified Man" was portrayed by Ben Cotton, who later went on to play a completely different character, Coker Fasjovik, in Blood and Chrome.
