Sheba - Battlestar Galactica

Sheba from Battlestar Galactica played by Anne Lockhart.

Sheba is a fictional female Kobolian in the Battlestar Galactica television series who was played on screen by Anne Lockhart. Sheba holds the rank of Lieutenant within the Battlestar Galactica.

Lieutenant Sheba was introduced in the second half of the original series when there are a few changes to ensure the survival of the series. Lieutenant Sheba becomes a major character to the series to an extent that she's as major a part of the series as Starbuck and Apollo.

Sheba is the lead female Colonial Viper fighter pilot in the series. There were others but they their characters disappeared or written out. Sheba is introduced when the Battlestar Galactica discovers the Battlestar constellation">Pegasus. The Pegasus is the only other battlestar known to have survived the attack on the colonies by the Cylons.

Sheba became more prominent in the second half of the series with Lieutenant Boomer's character appearing less frequent.

Admiral Cain's Daughter

Sheba is the daughter of Admiral Cain in the original series. Lieutenant Sheba doesn't approve of the relationship between her father and Cassiopeia in part due to the age gap. She first appears in the first part of The Living Legend two parter episode.

Sheba is like the rest of the Pegasus crew because when her father is stood down by Commander Adama, she is willing to take part in a mutiny in order to see him back in command. The mutiny doesn't take off because of a Cylon attack and Adama reinstates Admiral Cain.

Although it didn't get anywhere given the relatively short length of the series, had it gone on further, we might have seen Lieutenant Sheba and Capt. Apollo get closer. Sheba is as courageous and skilled as her male counterparts.

Re-imagined Series

Lieutenant Sheba didn't appear in the re-imagined series from 2003. Her father became Admiral Helena Cain, still in command of the Battlestar Pegasus. Cain was a female who had no time for survivors, she just wanted to fight rather than protect.

Helena was unmarried and was in a relationship with a Number Six clone that had found her way onboard the Pegasus. The Number Six clone was identified and brutalised by the crew of the Pegasus.
