Graphic novel adaptation of the "Saga of a Star World" theatrical movie. Later broken up to become issues 1-3 of the Marvel Comics "Battlestar Galactica" title. Per writer Roger McKenzie in a Comics Reader interview, this was an adaptation of an early version of the pilot script, with Serina still listed as Lyra, and no rescue scene for Cassiopeia.

Differences from the Televised Pilot

Baltar is executed by the Cylons.
Lyra (Serina) is told that she is dying from radiation sickness.
Cassiopeia does not survive the Ovion mines.
In the final scene, Lyra says good-bye to Apollo.
