Original diagnostic tool used by the character of Cally, Nicki Clyne actress in the re-imagined science fiction series Battlestar Galactica. This update of the late-1970s programme takes a decidedly darker tone as what’s left of humankind struggles for survival against the robot Cylons, who have killed millions. The Galactica, led by William Adama, protects a patched-together fleet of civilians – led by de facto president Laura Roslin – in search of a mythical planet called Earth.
This piece of equipment was used in the hangar bay to help diagnose the Viper’s. Cally can be seen using this item in the show and was also heavily featured on one of the main promotional photographs for the television series. This item is altered from a real life piece of equipment and features a rectangular box painted yellow with a white meter on the top, black handle, and various black knobs and dials on the side. This piece features a section of metal cord covered in wire mesh protruding from the side, where a small yellow handheld tool is present. The small tool is made of plastic with silver detailing and has an attached alligator clip where it would have been used to diagnose the Viper’s on screen. Included is an autographed photo of Cally and the diagnostic tool. This piece shows some slight wear form use in the film but remains in excellent, production used condition.
These items come with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
