Helena Cain – Battlestar Galactica

Last Words: “Frak You.”

How She Died:  Shot by Cylon Gina Inviere in her quarters

Why Her Last Words Were So Great: Admiral Cain was first introduced in the second season of Battlestar Galactica, and she is first given a heroes welcome.  She quickly becomes a villain on the show as her wartime military tactics are unbearable to Commander Adama and President Laura Roslin.  She forces Galactica to replenish her ships resources, and neglects the civilian ships needs.  She turns the other way to her crew’s torture and rape of female Cylon prisoners.

She and Adama continued to butt heads to the point where their battlestars almost engaged in full combat.  They negotiated a truce to go against Cylons but both had plans to assassinate each other, which they both reneged on at the last moment.

In the aftermath of the destruction of the Cylon Resurrection Ship, Gaius Baltar freed Gina Inviere, Cain’s former lover who she let her crew torture and rape her once she was revealed to be a Cylon.  Gina Inviere went straight to her quarters and held a gun to Cain.  Cain was defiant to the end and just uttered “Frak You” to the Cylon before she pulled the trigger.  A flawed person Cain was, but she didn’t care what you thought!
