When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurfaces and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.

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.

Two families, the Graystones and the Adamas, live together on a peaceful planet known as Caprica, where a startling breakthrough in artificial intelligence brings about unforeseen consequences. A spin-off of the Sci Fi Channel series "Battlestar Galactica" set 50 years prior to the events of that show.

The colonial viper pilot costumes were designed to be "reminiscent" of the uniforms worn on the original Battlestar Galactica (1978). Specifically, the outfit includes a quilted, v-shaped tunic cover, and the helmet has a falcon insignia above the face (although this is small and dark, as opposed to the original large, gold bird on an Egyptian-style helmet).

In the scene where soldiers are putting together their rifles while blindfolded, the soldier that Shaw orders to fire on her originally takes his blindfold off completely. Following shots switch between the blindfold being pushed down around his neck and completely off. See more »
This is a great episode of galactica that sits outside the main plot to the fill some gaps for avid fans. However after seeing this in the DVD store its obviously being packaged as a standalone movie to which it doesn't stay true. Straight off the boat there are specific references to moments you'll barely remember as an avid fan. I tried to introduce my friend to galactica with this episode and we gave up after 2 minutes. Its used as a mechanism to introduce new characters for the next series and show their role in the pegasus plot tree. Even as an avid fun up for a good episode I would recommend some revision of the previous series beforehand.
