The second war against the Cylons is over and The Twelve Colonies have been destroyed. Now Commander Adama of the Battlestar Galatica and President Laura Roslin lead a ragtag fleet of refugees in a supposed search for the fabled lost thirteenth colony, Earth. However, the dangers they face are many which compound an already difficult situation. In addition to the Cylons hunting and attacking the fleet in space and their infiltrator units carrying out sabotage-even as their former unwitting pawn, Gaius Baltar, helps in the hunt for them while hiding both his own guilt and the strange presence that haunts his every thought, the fleet also faces internal political conflict in which the rabble-rousing figure, Tom Zarek, is merely the loudest dissenting voice, not to mention recurring shortages of food, water and even oxygen. In the midst of these trials, however, clues begin to appear to suggest that Adama's bluff about finding Earth might hold more truthful than anyone could have guessed. Written by

The Cylons simply could not kill of the BILLIONS of humans who lived in the Colonies with a simple nuclear war and then a follow up invasion.Even if the majority of the populations on all of the planets lived in or near cities that were struck, most of the people would have survived both the nuclear strikes, the subsequent radiation and the majority of Cylon raids that followed.
Failing the use of a genetically engineered pathogen in addition to the nukes and the their raids, the Cylons would still have to contend with as many as several hundred million human beings in addition to those escaping in the Galactica fleet. See more
