One of the most popular television series of the late '70s science fiction boom gets a new look for the new millennium in remake, created as a made-for-cable miniseries. Four decades after the Cylon Wars, the Cylon robots (some of whom have since assumed human form) have launched a vicious nuclear attack, leaving only a few Colonial forces to lead the survivors to safety. Led by starship commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) and politician and possible presidential successor Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell), the crew of the Battlestar Galactica searches the galaxy for the mythic 13th Colony of Kobol (otherwise known as Earth), their destination and only hope for survival. Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries also stars Jamie Bamber, James Callis, and Grace Park.

      After seeing an overview of season 1 I rushed out to buy this disc. Awesome. A great introduction to the series that I couldn't stop watching through the end. Highly, highly recommended.

      Best Female protagonist

      This Mini-Series developed surprisingly innovative and daring choices to remake an old series. The female protagonists are wonderful. An intelligent choice in a sea of repetitive TV seasons.

      If you remember the TV film or have the VHS, don't buy this DVD.
