Storyline

The first Cylon war has been raging for 10 years and a young Ensign William Adama joins the fleet. He's disappointed not to be assigned to a fighter but to a freighter. His co-pilot, Lt. Coker Fasjovic, isn't too keen on having a rookie flying his aircraft as he has only a short time before he again becomes a civilian. Their cargo is a civilian scientist, Dr. Becca Kelly, but they no sooner leave than she has new orders for them and a new destination. She is less than forthcoming about just what her secret mission is but Adama is keen, particularly as it involves going into Cylon controlled space. Nothing is as it seems however.

Quotes

[first lines]
William Adama: Dear Dad, in your last letter, you questioned whether it's my responsibility to join this fight. The truth is we all became responsible the day we created the Cylons. We're the ones let let these robots become our servants, our trusted helpers and even our friends. We let them into our lives, only to see them repay our trust with a violent revolt against us. I know there's a lot of debate about why they hate us. But in the end, does it really matter? Kill the enemy or be killed. ...

Disappointment and spiritless
2 May 2015 | by Dennis LaursenSee all my reviews

I would start to say, that if you intent to watch this movie as a standalone, you will probably not get that much out of it. This movie is related to the remake of Battlestar Galactica from 2004, and are best watched after the main show. However, you will, IMO, not get that much out of the movie anyway.

If you, like me, thought that BSG: B&C will be a movie that tells more about the reasons and motives behind the first Cylon war, and will keep the original BSG atmosphere and spirit, you will be greatly disappointed. The movie don't have any from the original crew (actors, writers, directors and such) in the movie, and it seems more like a bad spin off/fan-fiction to BSG, than a worthy prologue. And the movie don't tell anything about the first Cylon war, and the only use this as a setting for a (dull) plot.

The plot in the movie is a young William Adama who are going on a "milk-run", which in short time turns out to be a secret mission. But the plot is bad and full of holes, the characters motivation to do what they do are unresolved, and the movie feels long, in spite of that it last less than 1½ hours.
