Lieutenant Sheba, portrayed by Anne Lockhart, is a fictional character and regular cast member of the 1978-1979 ABC television series Battlestar Galactica.

Daughter of the legendary Commander Cain, Sheba first appeared as the leader of the Silver Spar Viper squadron from the Battlestar Pegasus in the two part episode "The Living Legend." Left behind on the Galactica when her father took the Pegasus off to battle, and subsequently disappeared, Sheba was assigned responsibility for a Viper squadron on the Galactica; however, she continued to wear her Pegasus flight insignia for some time.

Originally intended as a foil for the character of Captain Apollo, Sheba became a friend to Cassiopeia, spurned the advances of Lieutenant Starbuck, and grew close to Apollo and his family.

She was brought under the spell of Count Iblis in "War Of The Gods," but ultimately resisted. Iblis told Sheba that she would see her father again.

Ultimately, Sheba fell in love with Apollo, and revealed this to him in the final episode of the series, "The Hand Of God."

She became a member of the Council of Twelve in Richard Hatch's relaunch novel series, which continued the story of the Colonial fleet after the end of the TV series.

The Maximum Press Battlestar Galactica comic book series of the 1990s has her eventually marrying Apollo, after which they have a son named Cain for her father.

Although the storyline of the Pegasus was revisited in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series, the character of Sheba does not have a true analog in the new program.
