Storyline

The Battlestar Galactica encounters the Battlestar Pegasus, which they thought to be destroyed. The Pegasus is commanded by one of their most celebrated warriors, Commander Cain. Cain is a strategic genius, but is bent on destroying the Cylons while Adama is happy to acquire fuel and escape, thus keeping his fleet alive to find Earth. When Cain sabotages a mission to obtain fuel, the Galactica and Pegasus are forced to attack a Cylon Base World and three Baseships. While the Galactica stays on to attack the planet, the Pegasus leaves to engage the Baseships (against orders). After the battle, the Pegasus just keeps on going into deep space and is never heard from again. The Galactica gets the fuel it needs and the fleet continues its journey, looking for Earth.

Goofs

Cain sends the Pegasus through a bright starfield after Baltar's Baseship. According to the dialogue, the Pegasus is traveling alone at this point. However, the exterior shots in this sequence show the Battlestar being followed by at least half a dozen other ships. (These shots are actually of the Galactica leading the fleet through the Nova of Madagon, from "Saga of a Star World"). In the "Living Legend" episodes from which Mission Galactica was derived, the sequence is different and doesn't show this goof. See more »

Quotes

Count Baltar: What is the latest intelligence?
Lucifer: It is the consensus of the commanders of the two supporting baseships that we should ask for help from the planet Gamoray at once.
Count Baltar: Somehow I find the idea of some base commander on Gamoray taking credit for destroying the Galactica slightly annoying.
Lucifer: We did not do quite so well in battle this day.
Count Baltar: We were taken by surprise! Thanks to your so-called intelligence report! How many squadrons based on Gamoray?
Lucifer: Four complete squadrons - the equivalent of a baseship.
Count Baltar: ...

Extended Versions of the original two shows
13 August 2007 | by (Greenville, GA) – See all my reviews

Although others have commented that this video is just an edited version of the two shows: "Fire in Space" and "Living Legend", if you watch the original shows you'll find that dialogue from this video edition was edited out. I found this video version much better because scenes and lines were added to it. I would say if you want to see the show in its original version, see the video versions on VHS. They have more to offer the fan than the original episodes being offered on DVD now. Another good video is Conquest for the Earth, which had more scenes from Galactica 1980 than did the actual broadcasts themselves. Overall, I rate this as a 10 because it gives you more to enjoy than what the networks wanted to show in the time slot they gave the producers.
