Edward James Olmos,
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
The number One Cylon brothers Cavil organize a massive coordinate simultaneous attack to destroy the twelve colonies, but it fails to wipe out human life or break the human spirit. They now orchestrate deceptive actions, infiltrating surviving communities, notably aboard flagship Battlestar Galactica and Samuel Anders's human trainees class on planet colony Caprica. Both sides must confront existential as well as pragmatical challenges to battle for survival.Written by
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 »
Oh, now, now, don't tense up, Mysterious. I'm just saying there's no point in judging anybody. No one changes who they really are.
If no one is corrected, then no one learns their lessons.
Well, I've lived in this world a long time, and I'm proud to say that I haven't learned any Godsdamn lessons!

While the acting and direction of the sparse new footage was excellent, the point of this exercise sadly escapes me. This story answered NO questions I had; the answers it did present were either obvious or trivial. It was too confusing to draw new viewers, and too redundant to charm all but the fiercest fans. A few of the explications actually spawned new questions I did not want to have (e.g., were some 1's and 4's actually redeemable; I don't really want to think so, given the series ending). And the final (best) scenes were ruined by excising a certain key character and over-dubbing her original order. Contractual exigencies, no doubt -- a thought which was unfortunately running through my head for most of the show, preventing any willing suspension of disbelief. NBC/Universal, take note: devotees of this series are more intelligent and discriminating than this; this is not the way to milk them.
