Snie'Goss is one of six Borellian Nomen chieftains who serve under Gar'Tokk aboard the prison barge Icarus in 7360[1].

Imprisoned for reasons unspecified along with the only remaining Nomen—totaling 13 persons[2]—Snie'Goss is released by Gar'Tokk, who himself had been released by Count Iblis[3]. In that time, Snie'Goss and his fellow Nomen slay the ship's crew and wardens; Snie'Goss and fellow Nomen secure Icarus' bridge and have "taken the hearts of the crew"[1].

After Lucifer begins his assault on the Fleet, Snie'Goss notifies Gar'Tokk of an interception attempt by two Colonial Vipers. Gar'Tokk instructs Snie'Goss to use Icarus' defensive lasers to destroy the Vipers[4]. As the battle wages on, the disembodied Iblis visits Gar'Tokk, ordering him to repay his debt by destroying the Forge ship Hephaestus[5]. Upon Snie'Goss informing his Sovereign Lord that the Cylons were attacking the human Fleet, Gar'Tokk reconsiders his aid to Iblis for he finds the Cylons to be the most disgusting and inferior of races[6]. Snie'Goss witnesses Iblis' declaration that Gar'Tokk has made a "very dangerous enemy" and that he shall regret it in due time[6].

With Lucifer's and Iblis' attempts thwarted, Gar'Tokk, Snie'Goss and his Nomen surrender Icarus to the Quorum of Twelve and recapture the other human prisoners they had freed. These acts spur discussions amongst the Quorum as to how to handle the Nomen in the future, perhaps even allowing them to leave the Fleet for their own homeworld[7] (RH: Armageddon).
