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.
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.

The character Giana O'Neill (Simon's wife) was portrayed by actress Lymari Nadal. In the 2003 miniseries that re-introduced "Battlestar Galactica", Nadal played a character with the same first name who was escorted off of Caprica by Boomer. She had drawn the number 127 in the lottery that Helo and Boomer setup for passengers. See more »

I was a great fan of the series and bought the DVD's as soon as they were available.
This, however, was a real let down. It was almost more like a budget saving "clip show" than a movie. There was nothing new, no revelations, no finally uncovered PLAN. It was just a rehash of everything you knew before.
It was nice to see Edward James Olmos direct again and there were some new scenes (heavily mixed with clips).
I'm certain there are some great movies that could be made based on the series. Unfortunately this was not one of them.
