In a far off Galaxy
the 12 Colonies of Man have come together to end a 1000 year war
with the machine race known as the Cylons. The peace mission is
a trap concocted by the Cylon's Imperious Leader and a power hungry
human by the name of Baltar. An armada of Cylon ships catch the
Human's unprepared fleet of Battlestars off guard. Only the Battlestar
Galactica, under the command of Commander Adama, is able to launch
it's fighters in time to defend the fleet.
As the battle between
the Colonial fleet and the Cylons rage, Adama's son Apollo informs
his father that there were no Cylon Base-Ships to be seen. Fearing
the worst, Adama sets course for their Home worlds, which the
Cylons Base-Ships now orbit.
When the Galacitca
arrives within the solar system of the 12 Colonies, Adama and
his crew find all of their planets laid to waste. News only grows
worse, when the Galactica discovers that it alone survived the
Cylon ambush. Knowing full well that the Glactica alone could
not protect mankind from the incoming fleet of Cylon ships, Commander
Adama sends word for every man, woman, and child to set to space
in whatever ship could carry them. In all, 220 ships containing
the last remnants of the once proud 12 Colonies of Man set course
to deep space. Lead by the last Battlestar Galactica, Commander
Adama announces to his people that they would go in search of
a long lost 13th colony of man, on a small blue world known as
Having had little
time to escape the Cylon's advancing fleet, the Colonial fleet
sets sail without proper equipment, food, or fuel supplies and
are completely unprepared for the long journey ahead of them.
Thus the Galacitca sets course for an abandoned ore mining planet
Once on Carillon,
the crew of the Galactica discover a vast unknown pleasure resort,
populated by humans who had no clue as to what had happened to
the colonies. The aliens who run the resort, the Ovions, offer
safe harbor to the weary Colonial fleet. Aboard the Galactica
Sirus Yuri, and arrogant politician, demands that humanity surrender
to the Cylons. Adama tries to explain to his fellow members of
Humanities ruling council that to do so would be inviting their
own destruction; they do not listen.
On Carillon, Apollo,
Starbuck and Boomer wait to be awarded the Colony's highest honor,
and a banquet Sirus Yuri intends to use as a platform to rally
the desperate population to turn against Adama. Soon Apollo and
Starbuck discover the dark secret of Carrilon, when they accidentally
discover that the Ovions are working with the Cylons and using
humans as food.
Barely escaping, the
heroes of the Galactica learn that the Cylons are attacking the
Galactica. Fortunately Adama anticipated the Cylon's attack and
had all the ship's Vipers standing by on the surface of Carrilon.
Once in space the Viper's make short work of the Cylon forces
and Starbuck and Apollo succeed in destroying the pursuing Cylon
Base-Ship along with the Imperious Leader.
Learning of their
defeat and the Human's escape, the new Imperious leader offers
the imprisoned Baltar a command in the Cylon's navy, in turn for
Baltar's assistance in destroying the Galactica and all humanity.
Baltar agrees to the devil's bargain and leads the Cylons in pursuit
of the Battlestar Galactica and it's rag-tag fleet.

Two Viper pilots return
to the Galactica, after a long-range patrol mission. While on
patrol, the Boomer and his wing-man landed on a nearby planet
to scout around, before returning to the Galactica. Upon their
return, the Viper pilots skip decontamination procedures, as they
are eager to attend Captain Apollo's engagement party to Serina.
Unknown the Boomer and Co., they contracted a deadly and contagious
virus while on patrol and unwittingly pass it along to the rest
of the ship's pilots.
Apollo and Starbuck,
who fortunately had been on patrol as well and were late getting
back to the party, escape contamination. With the bulk of the
Galactica's Viper pilots incapacitated, Adama orders the female
shuttle pilots to be trained for combat.
Forced to attack a
Cylon base in order to get a cure to the disease that afflicts
the Battlestar's Viper pilots, Apollo and Starbuck are forced
to take the inexperienced female pilots into combat. Blue squadron
succeeds in defeating the Cylons and head back to the Galactica.
Aboard the Cylon Base-Ship
Hades, under the command of Baltar, the Cylons force the Galactica
through a worm-hole Starbuck and Apollo had discovered while on
patrol. Once through the worm-hole, the Galactica finds itself
in orbit around the mythical planet of Kobol, ancestral homeland
to all mankind.
On Kobol Apollo and
Serina are wed, as Adama searches for information about the location
of the lost 13th Tribe and Earth. Baltar too goes to Kobol and
his Cylon forces ambush the Colonials. During the battle the secret
to Earth's location is destroyed and Baltar is trapped in a pyramid.
Unable to save the traitor, Adama leaves Baltar to his fate. After
the battle is over, a damaged Cylon fires and kills Apollo's wife

Apollo's Viper is
damaged by Cylon fighters, and Apollo becomes marooted on a Wild-West
like planet. Apollo befriends a young boy by the name of Puppis
and his widowed mother Bella. The family take Apollo in and hide
him from the corrupt authorities.
During his stay on
Bella's farm, Apollo learns that her husband was killed by someone
by the name of Red-Eye, a shootist under the control of the villainous
LeCerta. LeCerta is nothing more than a thug, using his money
and power to control the local homesteads, demanding everyone
pay tribute to him or face the wrath of Red-Eye.
While visiting town,
Apollo sees that Red-Eye is actually a damaged Cylon Centurion
who thinks LeCerta is the Imperious Leader. Apollo considers taking
on the Cylon, but Bella stops him. Bella explains that her husband
was actually a Colonial Warrior like Apollo, who also tried to
kill Red-Eye... and lost.
When news comes that
a family member of Bella's was killed by Red-Eye, and that LeCerta
intends to kill him, Apollo decides to face the Cylon in a duel.
Meeting the Red-Eye in the town square, Apollo proves to be the
faster draw and blasts the Cylon. LeCerta, knowing he can't maintain
power without Red-Eye, runs for the hills.
Greatful for Apollo's
help, Bella shows Apollo where her husband's Viper crashed. Apollo
is able to scrounge some fuel and returns to the Galactica.

since abandoned by the Colonials. Not knowing what to expect,
Starbuck is assigned to take a Viper and patrol far ahead of the
fleet. To aid him, Starbuck is given a modified Viper capable
of light speed, with an on board semi-sentient computer named
C.O.R.A. Unfortunately, to give the Viper the speed it will need
to fulfill it's mission, the fighter's laser-torpedo generators
were removed and replaced with new engines. Unarmed, Starbuck
goes off on his mission.
Not long into his
long-range patrol, Starbuck runs into a fire fight and quickly
learns why no good deed goes unpunished. After helping an escaped
convict by the name of Robber allude the authorities, Starbuck
is almost immediately knocked out. When Starbuck wakes up, he
sees that Robber has stolen his Viper. Thinking he can commandeer
Rober's ship to go after him, Starbuck is captured by the local
authorities who blame Starbuck for everything.
Aboard the Galactica,
the crew see that Starbuck has not only broken radio silence but
has strayed off course. Not knowing what is going on, or why Starbuck
is using an unknown code, Adama is left to assume that Starbuck
is no longer in control of the Viper and order Apollo and Boomer
to blow the renegade Viper out of the sky.

12 colonies, who use the ancestors of the prison inmates as slave
labor. The colony has only one function, the production of alcoholic
beverages. No one has a clue that the war against the Cylons was

has lead a revolt. Just as everyone is piecing together what happened,
Cylon forces attack and destroy all the bootleg Ambrosia and Starbuck's

While on patrol, Apollo
and Starbuck encounter the long lost Battlestar Pegasus, under
the command of the legendary military leader Cain! Once the two
Battlestars join forces, Cain insists that the Galactica and Pegasus
together, can attack a Cylon base on the planet Gamoray. Though
the fleet is in desperately need to replenish their exhausted
fuel and supplies, Adama is sure that the Cylons will take advantage
of the occupied Battlestars and attack the fleet.
Thus Adama orders
an attack on a Cylon fuel tanker, as to avoid the death trap of
Gamoray. Cain has other plans however, and destroys the two tankers...
forcing Adama to go with Cain's plan. In response to Cain's actions,
Adama relieves him of duty. Before the Galactica can put Cain's
plan into action, the Cylons attack. Cain apologizes to Adama,
admitting he war wrong; that the Cylons would have destroyed the
fleet if the Battlestars had left them to attack Gamoray.
Baltar, thinking that
he can destroy the Colonial fleet and demonstrate how invaluable
he is to the visiting Imperious Leader, personally leads the attack
on the Galactica. Cain, back in command of the Pegasus, sets course
away from the fleet so he can out-flank the attacking Cylons.
Just as Baltar believes he is about to achieve final victory,

defenses. During the battle Bojay is injured and latter, Sheba
is also wounded while battling the Cylons in space.
Sheba and all the
wounded are shipped to the Galactica, as Commander Cain takes
the Pegasus into battle. His mission is to create a diversion
and join up with the Galactica latter. Cain has different plans
however, as he takes the Pegasus into a head on conflict with
three Cylon Base-Ships. Starbuck and Apollo turn to help the Pegasus,
using their laser-torpedoes to take out the guns on two of the
Base-Ships. Then Pegasus fires her missiles and, in a brilliant
explosion, destroys the two Base-Ships. Whether or not the Pegasus
had survived, no one knew. Back on the Galactica Sheba is welcomed
aboard and Adama makes her a part of his family. In his heart
of hearts, Adama is sure that they had not seen the last of the
