William Adama

Edward James Olmos

The Admiral of the fleet and commanding officer of the Battlestar Galactica is an experienced, pragmatic leader who does not stand on ceremony. Above all, he considers his crew to be his family. However, his relationship with his own son, Lee, is rocky, and Lee's recent resignation from the military has the potential to widen the rift between them even further. Adama's growing friendship with Laura Roslin and the return of his surrogate daughter Kara Thrace from apparent death also challenge him as he struggles to keep his fleet safe and on-course.
