aka Saga of a Star World
1985 (first release)
01 March 1992 (second release)
TOS
The Human-Cylon peace accords are a ruse by the genocidal Cylons, determined to exterminate all humanity. Only battlestar Galactica and a ragtag fleet survive, journeying across the galaxy in search of a long-lost sister civilization, Earth. Lured to the planet Carillon for fuel and relaxation, the Fleet barely survives a trap by the Ovions, an underground, insectoid species in league with the Cylons. This movie marks the first Battlestar Galactica material to ever be released for home viewing. Before it's first release on VHS in 1985, it was released on Laserdisc in 1980.
