It’s been 40 years since the 12 colonies of mankind have heard from their progeny, the Cylons — robotic creatures who rose up and declared war on their masters, then disappeared. In a sudden, devastating strike, the Cylons return and lay waste to the colonies, aided by human-looking Cylon variants and an unwitting fifth columnist. The attack forces Commander William Adama to call into action his museum-piece warship, the Battlestar Galactica, and soon its company of hotshot fighter pilots is blasting away at the invaders. But their best efforts can’t prevent the colonies’ obliteration. Fleeing the Cylon genocide, the Galactica leads a rag-tag fleet of survivors on a lonely quest to find humanity’s fabled 13th colony — a planet known as Earth.
Humanity has created Cylon, so that they help them in the development and management of the twelve colonies. Soon, humanity will be saved from its offspring with the help of the star cruiser Galaxy. It all started with the fact that the Cylons demanded that their civil rights be recognized. As a result, the war began. As a result of the confrontation, the Cylons left to look for a new home and no one knew anything about them for forty years.
But, they returned again and the war continued. The “Galactica” under the command of William Adama is destined to lead the space fleet so that humanity begins to search for a new home – a fantastic Earth.
