How It Began . . .

Battlestar Galactica started over 20 years ago with these fateful words:

"There are those who believe... that life here... began out there. Far across the universe. With tribes of humans... who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians... or the Toltecs... or the Mayans... that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids... or the lost civilizations of Lemuria... or Atlantis... Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man... who even now fight to survive... somewhere beyond the heavens."

While we marvel at the new series, Battlestar has been around in so many different forms over the years, that it's been virtually impossible to forget.

The original Battlestar Galactica...

The series, Battlestar Galactica, began it's epic journey on September 17, 1978 travelling closer and closer to the mythical planet Earth via ABC television. We watched as they lost the war with the Cylons and were forced to flee from their homeworlds in search of the 13th tribe According to the ancient writings, the Twelve Colonies were settled by those who journeyed from a mother world, Kobol and a thirteenth tribe of humans moved across the stars to settle another world: Earth.

The present day Colonials set out thinking it only a thin hope, a myth to hold on to, not really sure if Earth was real or not. Contained in the writings in the Book of Kobol (the Colonials equivalent of The Bible, they followed the legendary commander of the last battlestar, Galactica, literally taking his word for it that Earth exists. The original Battlestar Commander believed that Earth exists. In this series, we find a much hardened commander William Adama (always thought Adama's first name was Commander). He isn't a believer, but feels that the fleet has to hold on to something, and the "Earth-13th tribe" myth is as good as anything.

Battlestar Galactica has come far....

The New Galactica Crew


Battlestar Galactica has come so far in the past 20 some odd years. When we watched the miniseries we were not ready for the changes the SciFi channel gave us. We didn't think we'd actuall even like the new show. We were right. We found out that we loved the new series and knew that with it's success, there would have to be a television series.

After nearly a year of waiting patiently, Battlestar Galactica 2005 premiered. Wow, what a great show. Whether you're a science fiction fan or not -- if you love tightly woven plots, excellent characterization, three-dimensional characters who you immediately get attached to, and a gritty, edge of seat television show that leaves you aching for the next episode, this is the show for you.

The original Battlestar Galactica was one of my favorite shows. I now count this incarnation as another one.

Episode 108 - Airdate: Feb. 25, 2005

A Cylon, who calls himself Leobon, is discovered on one of the ships in the fleet. Commander Adama sends Kara to interrogate him — or, rather, it. The Cylon tells Kara that he planted a nuclear device on one of the ships. Although she doesn't believe it, Kara passes on the warning.

As her colleagues search for the device, Kara engages Leobon in a battle of wills. Theological debates about souls and the humanity of Cylons lead to mind games, threats, and, ultimately, torture. Taking a personal interest in what Leobon has to say, President Roslin joins the interrogation.

On Galactica, Sharon asks Baltar to try out his new Cylon-detecting technology on her.

Meanwhile, on far-off Caprica, another Sharon conspires with her Cylon associates Doral and Number Six to convince Helo to remain on the planet and start a new life.
