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.

Edward James Olmos,
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 they need and the fleet continues its journey, looking for Earth.

Cain sends the Pegasus through a bright starfield after Baltar's base ship. 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 does not show this goof. See more »
How long before our fighters can return to defend us?
I'm afraid the Pegasus will reach us first.
Then drop back. Let the other two base ships intercept the Pegasus.
I'm not sure the other base commanders will appreciate that.
It isn't a request, it's an order.
[Baltar's base ship drops back while the battlestar Pegasus approaches the other two base ships]
Two basestars coming up on range, sir. The third has fallen back behind them.
That will be Baltar's ship! Plot a course between those two ...

Let's think people , quit bad-mouthing the original , for it's time the original Battlestar series was a masterpiece , even still with all the stars , story lines and art . Lorne Greene was great as Adama and Richard Hatch was perfect as Apollo and Dirk Benedict was funny as Starbuck , but I dare say , not as pretty as Katee as Starbuck .
I loved the episode with the Pegasus and Greetings from Earth was good John Calicos was great as Baltar , War of the Gods , the best was Experiment in Terra , I thought that was a tribute in a way to Heaven Can Wait , then you had the women of Battlestar , not to compare them to let's say Tricia who is outstandingly beautiful as Number Six , but Jane Seymour's beauty could not be compared to . Let alone Loerrta Spang as Cassiopea was fantastic .She had beauty that a rainbow would be embarrassed by . I loved the original as much as the new .
Can you imagine if John Calicos had a number six ? :)
Thankyou for listening .
