Tropes pertaining to or associated with Katee Sackhoff
- Adam Westing: Pokes fun at her BSG role in two appearances As Herself in The Big Bang Theory, where the characters are acknowledged fans. The kicker, she isn't actually there but just an imaginary construct by the Casanova Wannabe Howard.
- Enforced Method Acting: She confessed to being genuinely terrified during a particularly intense scene in Battlestar Galactica with Edward James Olmos; Olmos, a dedicated and powerful actor who often improvises on set, scared the hell out of her.
- Gender Flip: She was the subject of one of the more controversial Gender Flips when she took on the role of Starbuck in the Battlestar Galactica remake. Purists were outraged and even the original Starbuck actor went into a rage over the decision. Her performance, however, won over even the most ardent critics.
- The Lad-ette: A few of her roles are this, most notably Starbuck.
- One of Us: Aside from being a Geek Goddess in genre television, she's also a fan."I was addicted to the original "Star Trek" when I was growing up, because of my dad. We grew up in St. Helens, Oregon and we weren't allowed to watch a lot of TV. I don't think we even had more than three channels, so it was basically watch Dynasty (1981) with my mom, watch Star Trek (1966) with my dad, or watch the mating rituals of beavers on OPB [Oregon Public Broadcasting]. So my brother and I watched "Star Trek"."
- Star-Making Role: Her role as Starbuck garnered critical acclaim and opened many doors for her.
