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.

The phrase "By Your Command" has only been said twice by the Cylons: at the end of the mini-series, uttered by the "skinjob" Cylons and in Battlestar Galactica: Razor
(2007), by Cylons from the original Cylon war. The latter appear in the same design as the Cylons of the original television series. See more
The colony called Sagittarion in the miniseries is called Sagittaron throughout the series. See more

[about Commander Adama
Maybe if he's more comfortable he'll be a little easier to deal with.

No, it's not smart. It's politics.
The second season added the line "47,875 survivors in search of a home called Earth" in the opening sequence starting with Episode #2.1 "Scattered" and decremented it in every subsequent episode based on how many characters were killed off in the previous episode (or occasionally, as when the Pegasus returned, increasing it when the population increases).

For the first season, the British and American versions had different opening credit themes, and in certain American-version episodes, the episode title was shown after the previous episode's recap while in the British version it was not. See more
