(2004 TV Series)
Episode: Final Cut (2005)
After releasing a video which shows the Gideon massacre, a journalist from the fleet called D'anna Biers is given full access to Battlestar Galactica by Commander Adama and President Laura Roslin, in order to show the human, true face of the Galactica crew. But are these D'anna's real intentions?
D'Anna Biers, a nosy journalist from the Fleet News Service, is preparing an item on the Gideon incident, complaining that no marines or officers were charged for shooting the civilians. Suddenly she's asked by commander Adama and president Roslin to follow daily life on Galactica. She's given full access and is not required to create a positive story. D'Anna agrees with the offer. While some of the crew like Lee Adama dislike what she's doing, Dr. Baltar tries desperately to draw her attention. Biers is more interested in the Gideon story, especially after Tigh is getting a death threat. Meanwhile the air group is still having a shortage of pilots, forcing them to be on duty for 15 hours continuously. Louanne Katraine, one of the pilots, seems to be unable to cope with the stress.
In the aftermath of Colonel Tigh's violent raid on the Goliath after he declared martial law, the media has continued to clamor for a more in-depth examination of the raid that resulted in civilian deaths. As a result, President Roslin and Commander Adama invite journalist D'Anna Biers to go aboard the Galactica, giving her free access and carte blanche to report on what she finds as she sees fit. Biers clearly has a chip on her shoulder and a pronounced anti-military bias. An attempt at interviewing Colonel Tigh goes awry, with him stomping out of the interview room. When Biers delivers the final product, everyone is pleased because she has obviously come around, praising the military for putting their life on the line every day. Biers has a deep, dark secret however.

(1978 TV Series)
The leaders of the Twelve Colonies of Mankind are making plans to sign a peace treaty with their mortal enemies, the Cylon Empire. On the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons betray the pact and destroy most of the Colonies and their entire fleet. Under the command of Commander Adama, the battlestar Galactica leads the remaining Colonial ships into space and seeks out a lost thirteenth colony, which turns out to be Earth. Along the way, the Colonials encounter various races (both friendly and hostile), the legendary human warrior Commander Cain, and the planet Kobol, the motherworld of all the Colonies. All the while, the Cylons - under the command of human traitor Count Baltar - closely pursue this fugitive fleet across the universe.
In a distant galaxy, twelve planets bearing tribes of the race known as Mankind have been at war with a robotic alien race, the Cylon Empire, for a millennium. In the measurements used by the Twelve Colonies, it is the Yahren 7341, and a peace treaty is to be signed - a treaty that proves to be a ruse for the largest assault in the history of galactic warfare. With their defending warships destroyed and their homeworlds annihilated, the Twelve Tribes gather to their remaining warship, the battlestar Galactica, boarding every assorted star vehicle that will carry them, as their leader, Commander Adama, seeks out the one planet that will protect Mankind from the predation of the Cylons - a planet called Earth. As their journey proceeds, this fugitive fleet is closely pursued the Cylon forces under the command of human traitor Count Baltar.
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.
Episode: Episode #1.2 (2003)
After forty years of armistice, the Cylons attacks the Twelve Colonies of Kobol. Their strategy: a virus implanted into the mankind defense system. The former Battlestar Galactica, which is being adapted as a museum, is not connected with the defense system and becomes the unique warship capable of fighting against the Cylons in the hopes of leading the survivors to planet 'Earth'.
The Galactica has gone to an armory to re-equip the ship and encounter one of the new types of Cylons, human-like and very powerful. They have been joined by Laura Roslin, the former Secretary of Education who has been sworn in as President of the 12 Colonies. She too has much on her mind besides the attack having learned that day that she has cancer. She tells Commander Adama and his senior officers that the war has been lost and their job now is one of survival. Gaius Baltar meanwhile can communicate with Number 6, the human-like Cylon, who is in his mind. She tells him that she cannot be killed as her consciousness will simply be transferred to another body, identical to the one she has now. She also tells him that there are twelve others like her, human in almost all respects. She also tells him that there are sleeper agents on the Galactica who may not even know they are Cylons. With paranoia and fear setting in, Adama tells the crew that they will set off for the fable 13th Colony - Earth. There is a high price to pay for getting away however.
Episode: Episode #1.1 (2003)
In a distant part of the galaxy lie The Twelve Colonies of Man, a civilization that has been at peace for some forty years with an empire of machines, the Cylons, who were created generations before as worker drones for mankind, but became independent, rose in rebellion, and launched war on their masters. Now, the Cylons have evolved into more human form, into machine-created biological beings, who seek to exterminate true biological humans. To this end they use a human scientist, Gaius, to help one of their infiltrators, known as #6, penetrate the Colonies' master defense mainframes; Gaius is reluctant but smitten by #6, a Cylon woman of seemingly insatiable sexual desire, and the result of their affair is a nuclear sneak-attack that obliterates the Colonies and the star navy deployed for their protection. One ship, however, survives, an obsolete battlestar known as the Galactica; scheduled for decommissioning, the Galactica instead must lead 50,000 surviving humans on a quest for a new home world, where they must bear children to rebuild their race. First, however, the Galactica must lead surviving ships of the Colonies to a weapons deployment base within a spatial storm, a rendezvous that leaves them trapped when two Cylon base stars track them down and open fire.
There is some sadness and many farewells on the day that the Battlestar Galactica is to be decommissioned and turned into a museum. Commander William Adama has the respect of his men and like the ship itself, he too may be coming into the last years of his storied career. They are all taken by surprise however when they are attacked by the Cylons. The first Cylon War ended 40 years ago and there has been no contact between them and the people of the 12 Colonies since. The Cylons are well prepared however, managing to disable most of the 12 Colonies computers before the attack. Adama orders his ship into action but the aging Galactica is partly decommissioned and does not have the supplies and ammunition to put up much of a fight. Adama's son, Capt. Lee Adama is also on board the battleship but they do not get along well since the death of Lee's brother. Meanwhile, industrialist Gaius Baltar learns from his lover that she is in fact a new form of Cylon, human-like in virtually every respect.
The story of how the Twelve Colonies of Mankind are destroyed after 1,000 years of war with the evil Cylon Empire. Through deceit, the Cylons are able to destroy the Colonies' entire fleet, except for the Battlestar Galactica, captained by Commander Adama. Adama gathers up the few remaining humans left on all the twelve worlds and embarks on a journey to find the mythical planet Earth, the supposed thirteenth colony, lost millennia ago when humans first left the motherworld Kobol. With food and fuel running out, the fleet heads for a mineral planet, Carillon, hoping to get what they need. The Ovions, who populate the planet, are being controlled by the Cylons, who set a trap for the Galactica. Under a clever ruse, Adama convinces the Cylons that his pilots are on the surface at a banquet, while the real pilots are at full combat readiness. The fleet gets their food and fuel, and escapes, destroying Carillon and a Cylon Baseship hiding behind the planet.
After 1,000 years of war, the humans from the Twelve Colonies are near to celebrate an armistice with the evil Cylon Empire. Out of the blue, the Cylons betray the pact and destroy the Colonies and their entire fleet, except the Battlestar Galactica. Commander Adama summons the few survivors from all the Colonies to follow him on a journey to find the mythical planet Earth. However, they are short of water, supplies and fuel and they head to the planet Carillon to replenish the fleet and get the supplies. Adama's son, the warrior Captain Apollo, and his partners Lieutenants Starbuck and Boomer destroy the mines left by the Cylons and they reach the planet. They are welcomed by the inhabitants and find the paradise. Meanwhile, the self-serving human leader Sire Uri wants to destroy their arms and live in the Cylon Empire despite the contempt of Adama. Sire Uri decides to give medals to Apollo, Starbuck and Boomer for their bravery on Carillon and invites the warriors to come to the party. However, Adama believes that it is a trap for the Galactica. What can he do?
The number One Cylon brothers Cavil organize a massive coordinate simultaneous attack to destroy the twelve colonies, but it fails to wipe out human life or break the human spirit. They now orchestrate deceptive actions, infiltrating surviving communities, notably aboard flagship Battlestar Galactica and Samuel Anders's human trainees class on planet colony Caprica. Both sides must confront existential as well as pragmatical challenges to battle for survival.

|11.||Tripping the Rift
(2004 TV Series)
Tripping the Rift is a CGI science fiction comedy television series. The universe is modeled largely after the Star Trek universe, with references to 'warp drive' and 'transporter' beam technology, occasional time travel, the Federation and the Vulcans. The series also includes elements borrowed from other sources such as Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Battlestar Galactica. The general setting is that known space is politically divided between two superpowers: the Confederation (led by Humans, and a parody of the Federation from Star Trek) and the Dark Clown Empire (a parody of the Galactic Empire from Star Wars). The Dark Clown Empire is a totalitarian, tyrannical police state, led by the evil Darph Bobo. In contrast, the Confederation is technically a democratic and free society, but in practice, is dominated by mega-corporations and bloated bureaucracies. Ultimately, both superpowers end up exploiting and restricting their inhabitants, albeit in different ways. For example, the value placed on life is so commercialized in the Confederation that clearly sentient robots and androids are reduced to essentially slave-status. The Dark Clown Empire practices actual slavery, and while the Confederation does not, most of its inhabitants (including the Human ones) are openly described as living in wage slavery. The only place that anyone can truly be free is in the border region between the two superpowers, which is directly controlled by neither. This borderland is known as "the Rift", hence those outlaws on the fringes of society who cling to their freedom by moving back and forth around the Confederation/Dark Clown Empire border to evade detection are said to be "Tripping the Rift". The series follows one such group of outlaws led by Chode aboard the Spaceship Bob, taking odd-jobs and usually pursuing various get-rich-quick schemes.
Riese, a seemingly random wanderer, is being hunted by a terrifying religious cult, The Sect. Traveling from nation to nation for years, she is accompanied only by a wolf, Fenrir.

Her past is shrouded in mystery, as even Riese can't recall the events of the tragic night when her entire family was slaughtered and she was forced to flee into the wilderness. On her journey, she'll piece together her past, and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of the world in the balance - and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield. "Riese", a unique and original steam-punk -inspired production includes Christine Chatelain ( SyFy's Sanctuary , Supernatural, The Collector, The L-Word ).
