Creator :Ronald D. Moore.
The second war against the Cylons is over and The Twelve Colonies have been destroyed. Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) of the Battlestar Galatica and President Laura Roslin ( Mary Mcdonnell) lead a ragtag fleet of refugees in a supposed search for the fabled lost thirteenth colony, Earth. They are facing dangers and complications, the cylons are hunting and attack the feet . One of them is an infiltrator.
This show broke out some stereo type. the Commander is Hispanic that was never seen before in any Sci-Fi, Then you have female being a starbuck pilot and a female plays the President. So far so good. The commander takes the ship in space were they are trying to find the 13 colony Earth. Great Sci-Fi series it does not get any better that. A nice cast was put together plus they have the budget for the special effect . The writers got creative in telling the story. It is battle between man and machines. It is fearless on issues like religions, War, gender equity, what is is to be human or robot. Later during the series you see that the cylons are getting smarter, they are evolving. Great 5 seasons.
