For forty years, the Twelve Colonies of Man experienced peace, united since the war against the man-made Cylons. The Cylons, mechanical beings created to perform the manual labor civilization required, were gone forever...or so humanity thought.
But in those years, the Cylons developed new Cylons that looked and acted like humans--with one goal in mind: to destroy all humanity! When they suddenly attacked the Twelve Worlds, humanity's extinction seemed inevitable.
Only a single warship survived the massive attack: Battlestar Galactica, the oldest ship in the fleet, ready to be decommissioned and turned into a museum. Commander William Adama, himself set to retire, had but one course: to marshal the meager forces available, a ragtag crew of misfits and green recruits, to prevent their enemy from wiping out the last vestiges of the human race. But the Cylons, stronger, smarter, and driven to destroy their creators, may just be too powerful for them and all of humanity to survive.

A new novel based on the SCI FI Channel's biggest hit original series ever!
In 1978, Battlestar Galatica was born, inspired by the success of Star Trek and Star Wars. Now, re-imagined by the brilliant Star Trek writer/director Ronald A. Moore, Battlestar Galactica lives again, a hard-hitting, suspenseful sci-fi series unlike anything ever seen on television before. In late 2003, an original Sci-Fi Channel miniseries heralded its arrival. Starring Edward James Olmost and Mary McDonnell, it electrified viewers and critics alike, and has been hailed as a landmark in television drama.
Now, published for the first time, here is the novel based on that exciting miniseries.
"Even if you're not normally a fan of the genre, you may find that this Battlestar is smart enough and entertaining enough to win you over."
"The new and darker Galactica is an intensely suspenseful journey of survival. Well worth staying home on Fridays to watch."
--Matt Roush, TV Guide
