- For on depictions relating to this race across multiple separate continuities, see: Ovions (disambiguation).
Dynamite Entertainment comics
The Ovions originate from a place other than Carillon, and thus are something of nomads.
Baltar and their queen Lotay agree for the Ovions to work the rich tylium deposits of Carillon, for Baltar did not trust his own people to safeguard the secret of Carillon's wealth from either the Cylons or the Colonials.
For the Ovions, Baltar had them build a gambler's paradise on the planet, in which the den of sin allows none of its victims to lose—except their lives as a food source for the Ovions, for they were on the verge of collapse as a species (Battlestar Galactica Annual 2014).
- The Ovions are a typical ingredient in a majority of separate continuity works, particularly for their involvement in the general lore of the Original Series.
