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 truth than anyone could have guessed.

Because this series was based on the 1970's show he created, Glen A. Larson
was credited as Consulting Producer on every episode of the new series, ensuring that he receives a significant residual income. However, he had no part in the production whatsoever. See more
Despite the fleet population being 50,000 people, the number on President Roslin's "White Board" is updated to only reflect changes in military/ govt personnel, but not births & deaths of the civilian population at large. Actually, this is not true and Roslin is seen adding the birth of a new born baby in an early episode. Additionally, the 10,000 people lost on New Caprica were mostly civilians. See more

Well, I see that you got it to eat. That's progress, I suppose. Can you get it to roll over... beg? See what it can make of these.

You know this thing used to sit in our mess and eat our food, and listen to our stories. Didn't you? You just sat there... listening to us, pretending to be our friend, didn't you?
