Dr Charlotte Gallivan was a Lieutenant aboard the Battlestar Galactica during the final days of the First Cylon War. It was her responsibility to look after the Psychological welfare of the crew and this duty meant that she was allocated her own room that doubled as her office. During the final days of the war she was assigned the unique task of interrogating a Cylon prisoner.
After the war she returned to Libran to lecture in Psychiatry at the University of Libran. As a result of her experiences with the Cylons she later wrote a book entitled 'The Enemy' which was a psychological study of the Cylon race. In it she described how the Cylons had evolved into a legitimate artificial and sentient race that had been enslaved by humanity and likened their revolt to the one that took place on Tauron. The book was extremely controversial and Dr Gallivan herself faced reprisals, some violent, for the rest of her life.
Neveah Ratliff gave a copy of the book to Artimus Bowman when she met him onboard the Battlestar Cerberus. He held onto the book and kept in his collection aboard the Battlestar Hermes until after ‘The Fall’
