Sam Adama - Caprica
Luckily, the Battlestar Galactica/Caprica universe is not one where people are prosecuted for their sexuality. Sam Adama is the uncle of William Adama, the future Admiral of the entire fleet. In Caprica, he takes a big role in the conflict between the Adamas and the Graystones, in an interesting chapter of the universe history that leads to the birth of the Cylons. Definitely an awesome character.
