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.

The 10 webisodes, entitled "The Face of the Enemy," tell a story that takes place between seasons 4.0 and 4.5 of Battlestar and follow Lt. Gaeta when he is sent off in a Raptor with a ... See full summary »
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 »
I've decided that the city of Gamoray would my seat of power. From it, I will decide how and where I will extend my dominion throughout the star system.
Begging you pardon, Baltar, but don't you think we should first go though the formality of conquering the humans before ordering our victory celebration?
That had the note of sarcasm, Lucifer. Watch yourself. You're not the only IL-series Cylon who dreams of standing beside the greatest conqueror in all the universe.
Forgive my impudence.

This film was edited from the episodes LIVING LEGEND parts 1 and 2 and FIRE IN SPACE. MISSION GALACTICA is ok as a film, but is nothing more than edited tv footage. The story revolves around the Galactica finding another Battlestar called the Pegasus and a fierce battle the two warships must fight over two planets in a system of planets controlled by the cylons. The film features LLOYD BRIDES as Cain the commander of the second battlestar who is essentially a celestial Patton. The film also focuses on the clash between the comand styles of Adama and cain. MISSION GALACTICA makes for fine family viewing. If the film were to get a MPAA rating it would be G.
