Battlestar Galactica has riveted
audiences for four seasons with its gripping tale of the
last remnants of humankind’s struggle to find safe haven. An
inspired, visually stunning reimagining of the 1978 series

of today’s hot-button issues, including politics, terrorism,
treatment of prisoners and religion, even inspired the
United Nations to host a special panel to discuss the
questions it has raised. The show’s outstanding ensemble
cast is led by Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee
Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and
Grace Park. The series is from Universal Cable Productions

Cylons, a race of sentient robotic clones. The few survivors

Galactica: Season 4.5, Commander William Adama (Emmy
Award®-winner Edward James Olmos), the hawkish military
leader of the last surviving battleship, searches for a
habitable planet as the murderous Cylons follow
relentlessly. As mysterious premonitions help Laura Roslin
(Mary McDonnell) the President of the Twelve Colonies, guide
the ship to the fabled Thirteenth Colony, Earth, treacherous
double agents, Cylon spies and internal dissent plague the
Galactica. The ship’s crew and passengers battle for their
lives—and the survival of the human race—armed with only
cunning and determination against the military might of the
