Lieutenant Athena - Battlestar Galactica

Athena from Battlestar Galactica played by Maren Jenson.

Athena is a fictional female Kobolian in the Battlestar Galactica television series who was played on screen by Maren Jenson. Athena holds the rank of Lieutenant within the Battlestar Galactica.

Lieutenant Athena was a character in the original television series but there was no direct new character in the re-imagined series. Later in the re-imagined series when the Lieutenant Sharon Valerii Cylon clone who helped Lieutenant Helo survive on Caprica comes on board the Galactica, the Cylon is given the name Athena so to differentiate the two.

Athena is the daughter of Commander Adama and the sister of Capt. Apollo. At the start of the series, she works on the bridge but later moves to working at a teacher. Lieutenant Starbuck is Athena's boyfriend but later on when Starbuck becomes romantically involved with Cassiopeia, Athena backs away.

you list her date of birth as 23/9/75 therefore she was 4 years old when she played Athena? Wow, an amazingly mature and hot 4 year old.

What I'd like to see the new Battlestar Galactica do with Apollo's sister Athena is get her a part on this millennium's version of the show!! How about you? Who would you all like to see play her? My choice would be Gabriella Hall!
