Profile of the characterAccording to Jamie Bamber, Lee Adama is a “complete character” with the manner of the ideal of the Renaissance, a “man of action, which is also a man of the verb and a man of thought”.
In the series of 1978, the name of the character was Apollo captain, name which evoked a positive hero while pointing out the various missions Apollo (in particular Apollo 11). In this new series where ancient mythology has a greatter importance, Apollo (Apollon) is not any more the name, but the nickname of the character. This nickname is used at the time of the missions of hunting, but also by the president Roslin whose opinion is that it sticks to the character well. This modification corresponds to the ambition of this new grinding of the series, on which Ron Moore insists, which is to introduce characters realistic, complex, and not of the stereotypes. The fans of the series in general seem to keep reference to Apollon only one allusion to his legendary beauty.

The couple Apollo-sun allows in English an untranslatable pun on the homophons sun and its , from which the third season draws part with the episode 18, Its Also Rises , which diverts the title of the novel of Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises (in French the Confrontation ). An amateur of the series notices that in this episode, Lee literally seeks to leave the shade of his/her father . This relation father-wire in any event is strongly connoted by the choice of the names, Adama, Adam, evoking a figure of universal father, Apollon being the eternally youthful son of Zeus.
But the intertextuality of the two names also insists on the ditch which separates two mental universes, the world vétérotestamentaire and patriarchal from where the patronym from the father (and the " is drawn; méchant" , in fact Helena Cain) being opposed to the Greek world from which the nickname of the son is borrowed (or those of Agathon, Athena and Hera, and even dyonisiaque Thrace). Whereas the president Roslin practices the Realpolitik, for the admiral Adama, who applies the Loi of retaliation towards cylons, the end often justifies the means (see the destruction of l
