Following the destruction of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol by the Cylons, a rag-tag fugitive fleet of the last remnants of mankind flees the pursuing Cylons while simultaneously searching for their true home: Earth.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.

When the initial Cylon attack against the Twelve Colonies fails to achieve complete extermination of human life as planned, twin Number Ones (Cavils) embedded on Galactica and Caprica must improvise to destroy the human survivors.

It's been 40 years since the 12 colonies of mankind have heard from their progeny, the Cylons -- robotic creatures who rose up and declared war on their masters, then disappeared. In a sudden, devastating strike, the Cylons return and lay waste to the colonies, aided by human-looking Cylon variants and an unwitting fifth columnist. The attack forces Commander William Adama to call into action his museum-piece warship, the Battlestar Galactica, and soon its company of hotshot fighter pilots is blasting away at the invaders. But their best efforts can't prevent the colonies' obliteration. Fleeing the Cylon genocide, the Galactica leads a rag-tag fleet of survivors on a lonely quest to find humanity's fabled 13th colony -- a planet known as Earth.Written by
Ryan Robbins, who plays the officer on Armistice Station (identified as Colonel Wakefield in the novelization), is seen with age-enhancing makeup in his sole onscreen scene. This was because the original version of the opening teaser would have featured his character visiting Armistice Station several times over 40 years, each time appearing progressively older. However, all scenes but the final one were cut after filming. See more »

I love everything about Battlestar Galactica. I used to watch the original as a kid but this is so much better due to quantum leaps in special effects since then. You feel as if you are right there on the flight deck or in the cockpit or in the command centre. Its easy to believe that Galactica exists somewhere 'out there'. I love the characters, they are so gutsy and real, the plot is excellently portrayed and leaves you gasping for more. I want to be a cross between Starbuck, Six and Laura and who wouldn't want to be mates (and more) with Apollo, Helo and Baltar. Such brilliant and realistic escapism is not always easy to find. The producers, writers and stars should be congratulated but I guess their reward is working on such an excellent project and knowing that they get to touch the lives of so many people.Even though we don't all get to fly vipers out amongst the stars we can pretend we do when we turn on BSG.
