The Battlestar Galactica roleplaying video game was released in November 2003, just before the Miniseries.

In the game, the player takes the part of Ensign William "Husker" Adama, and flies his Viper on missions against the Cylons, lead by Imperious Leader Lord Erebus, during the opening days of the Cylon War. The only other character from the shows to make an appearance is a young Garris Cain; however, using cheat codes, the original characters of Starbuck and Apollo can appear as your wingmen (and are even voiced by Original Series actors Dirk Benedict and Richard Hatch, respectively).

Both the Galactica and Atlantia make an appearance; it is the former which the orphaned Adama lives on, having fallen in love with Iphigenia, the daughter of its commander, Bryn Magus.

Notes

  • The 2003 video game draws elements from items found in what was to become the "Re-imagined" Series as well as elements familiar to the Original Series. Because of this and new elements, the Video Game creates a continuity that is generally separate from the either series. The game was designed to complement both the Original Series and the "Re-imagined" series; an earlier incarnation of the game developed but never produced in 2001 was based on the Singer / DeSanto continuation project.
  • In the game, William Adama is romantically involved with a woman named Iphigenia. In the Original Series, his wife is named Ila.
  • In the game, Adama has a full name, "William Adama." The Original Series character had no such name, but the same name (and callsign) are used for the character in the Re-imagined Series.
  • Using a special cheat, the Original Series characters of Starbuck and Apollo are available as wingmen to the player character, Adama. This wholly contradicts the characterizations of both Original Series and Re-imagined Series, where Starbuck and Apollo are subordinates to Adama. Further, Adama is Apollo's father in the Original Series, so for young Adama to fly with his son of the same age (game cheat notwithstanding) is a temporal contradiction. An additional bonus mission for the game was scripted but never implemented in the final build; this mission would have featured the Original Series characters of Starbuck and Apollo traveling back into the past to prevent the death of the young Adama. Details of that mission, including the script, are available here.
