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.

Did You Know?
The subplot set on Cylon Occupied Caprica with Helo and Boomer, was not originally planned. After being left on Caprica in the mini series, Helo was never meant be seen again; the audience would be left to assume that he died. Only after seeing the audience's reaction to Helo, did the show producers decide to bring him back and introduce another Boomer. At first there was no looming reason for Boomer and the Cylon's interest in Helo, but eventually the Cylons' experiments in creating a Cylon/Human Hybrid was written as their goal; becoming an integral part of the Cylon "plan."
