Plot Summary

The leaders of the Twelve Colonies of Mankind are making plans to sign a peace treaty with their mortal enemies, the Cylon Empire. On the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons betray the pact and destroy most of the Colonies and their entire fleet. Under the command of Commander Adama, the battlestar Galactica leads the remaining Colonial ships into space and seeks out a lost thirteenth colony, which turns out to be Earth. Along the way, the Colonials encounter various races (both friendly and hostile), the legendary human warrior Commander Cain, and the planet Kobol, the motherworld of all the Colonies. All the while, the Cylons - under the command of human traitor Count Baltar - closely pursue this fugitive fleet across the universe. Written by Anonymous

Trivia Muffit Two, Boxey's "daggit" (a dog-like animal) "drone", or robot, was realized by having a trained chimpanzee inside the daggit-drone costume (which was obvious by the way that it moved). Three chimps were used during the series. See more »
Goofs The humans' terms for time measurement appear to be simple replacements, as explained on the Trivia page - "micron" = second; "centon" = minute; and "centar," "secton," "sectar" and "yahren" corresponded respectively to hour, week, month and year - the term "centon" is the most used, often in a context that cannot possibly mean a minute: "He should have been in bed centons ago," "A route that will take us centons out of our way," etc. See more »

Quotes Opening Credit Announcer: There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe... with tribes of humans... who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians... or the Toltecs... or the Mayans. Some believe there may yet be brothers of man... who even now fight to survive - somewhere beyond the heavens!
