Simon O'Neill is a fictional male Cylon in the Battlestar Galactica television series who was portrayed on screen by Rick Worthy. He is a minor Cylon character who we first meet when his character is introduced as a medical doctor. Simon's model are interested in the human anatomy.
Simon's character is first introduced in The Farm where the Cylons have captured Lt. Kara Thrace ( Starbuck ) and are holding her in a hospital. Simon tends to care for Kara but Kara's view of him changes and his Cylon model is killed in her attempts to escape.
In the spin-off film, The Plan, we see more of this model. Simon is in a committed relationship with a woman and is torn between his duties as a Cylon and a husband. When Brother John Cavil orders him to blow up his space craft, Simon bodges the plan. Instead of blowing up the space craft, all Simon does is blow a hole in the craft which sends him out into space. The Simon clone freezes and dies permanently having killed himself nowhere near a Resurrection ship to capture his sole.
