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.Written by

Mission Galactica is comprised of three episodes of the TV series, edited together into a 2-hour film for theatrical release. The episodes are "The Living Legend" (parts 1 & 2), and "Fire In Space". See more »
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 »
[referring to Commander Adama]
Well, how is he? How is that old Modocker?
Well, considering a load he's carried since the destruction of our nation.
Yes, yes, I should imagine. And the rest of the fleet?
Only the Galactica survives, sir. Along with some 220 odd ships carrying what's left of our people.
My God, and I thought we had it bad. Only 220 ships left from all the Colonies?

Constructed from three Battlestar Galactica series episodes, "The Living Legend: Parts1 & 2" and "Fire In Space", edited together to seem like one story. See more »
Although others have commented that this video is just an edited version of the two shows: "Fire in Space" and "Living Legend", if you watch the original shows you'll find that dialogue from this video edition was edited out. I found this video version much better because scenes and lines were added to it. I would say if you want to see the show in its original version, see the video versions on VHS. They have more to offer the fan than the original episodes being offered on DVD now. Another good video is Conquest for the Earth, which had more scenes from Galactica 1980 than did the actual broadcasts themselves. Overall, I rate this as a 10 because it gives you more to enjoy than what the networks wanted to show in the time slot they gave the producers.
