Battlestar Galactica, an original SCI FI Channel miniseries, electrified viewers and critics alike and was hailed as a landmark in sci-fi television. Here, for the first time, is the novel based on that exciting drama.
For forty years, the Twelve Colonies of Man were at peace, united since the war against the robotic Cylons. These mechanical beings, created by mankind 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...and then they attacked the Twelve Worlds.
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 his meager forces, and somehow keep the Cylons from wiping out the last vestiges of the human race. But their inhuman Cylon enemies―stronger, smarter, and driven to destroy―may 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
Jeffrey A. Carver was a Nebula Award finalist for his novel Eternity's End. He also authored Battlestar Galactica, a novelization of the critically acclaimed television miniseries. His novels combine thought-provoking characters with engaging storytelling, and range from the adventures of the Star Rigger universe (Star Rigger's Way, Dragons in the Stars, and others) to the ongoing, character-driven hard SF of The Chaos Chronicles--which begins with Neptune Crossing and continues with Strange Attractors, The Infinite Sea, and Sunborn.
A native of Huron, Ohio, Carver lives with his family in the Boston area. He has taught writing in a variety of settings, from educational television to conferences for young writers to MIT, as well as his ongoing Ultimate Science Fiction Workshop with Craig Shaw Gardner.
