For those of you who haven't seen it, here's a synopsis to introduce you to the series, which is definitely worth watching:
After some 40 years of peace, the Twelve Colonies of Kobol are suddenly attacked by their own creations, the Cylons, who nearly wipe out humanity. All that remains is a ragtag fleet bearing approximately 50,000 precious lives with only a single battlestar to defend them from extinction. They are led by President Laura Roslin, a school teacher turned politico who sheds the mantle of Secretary of Education for the higher office in spite of having terminal breast cancer. Her counterpart is the aging Battlestar Galactica's commander, William Adama, a brilliant and strong-willed military officer who was on the verge of retirement before the attack. Together, they must work to keep the fleet united and protected while they search for Earth – all with the Cylons in relentless pursuit.
