Picking up where Sci Fi Channel's 2003 miniseries left off, Battlestar Galactica - Season 1 begins with the remnants of humanity all 48,000 of them on the run in what’s left of their space fleet. The Cylons -- the robot race that destroyed the humans’ home planet, Caprica, at the miniseries’ conclusion -- have both the numbers and the superior technology. What the humans have is the titular, outdated flagship and a ragtag military led by the gruff career soldier Cmdr. Bill Adama Edward James Olmos and his frequently depressed, hard-drinking second-in-command, Col. Saul Tigh Michael Hogan. On the political side, the newly installed president of the Colonies, Laura Roslin Mary McDonnell, tries to assert her authority with the military while dealing with the needs of her constituents. Vice President Gaius Baltar the amazing James Callis is haunted by his collaboration with the enemy and driven half mad by the frequent appearance of Six Tricia Helfer, a Cylon agent only he can see. Fighter pilots Lee "Apollo" Adama Jamie Bamber and Kara "Starbuck" Thrace Katee Sackhoff wage the day-to-day battles against Cylon raids. A hit right from the start, and justifiably so, Battlestar Galactica rises above the sci-fi shoot-‘em-up clichés, thanks to producers David Eick and Ronald D. Moore, who have created a sci-fi universe in which they weave a rich dramatic tapestry. Consider the series' treatment of religion: The Cylons are monotheists, while humans are polytheists which is manifest in amusingly pluralized cusswords. In addition to their numeric and technological advantages, the Cylons also have the treachery edge, and some have adapted human form. This allows for creepy infiltrations of the Galactica, including one that becomes apparent in the amazing season finale, "Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II," in a truly jaw-dropping moment of violence. A classic cliff-hanger, the January 24, 2005, episode effectively whet appetites for Season 2, which premiered on July 15th with the series’ highest ratings ever.
