When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
The number One Cylon brothers Cavil organize a massive coordinate simultaneous attack to destroy the twelve colonies, but it fails to wipe out human life or break the human spirit. They now orchestrate deceptive actions, infiltrating surviving communities, notably aboard flagship Battlestar Galactica and Samuel Anders's human trainees class on planet colony Caprica. Both sides must confront existential as well as pragmatical challenges to battle for survival.Written by
The character Giana O'Neill (Simon's wife) was portrayed by actress Lymari Nadal. In the 2003 miniseries that re-introduced "Battlestar Galactica", Nadal played a character with the same first name who was escorted off of Caprica by Boomer. She had drawn the number 127 in the lottery that Helo and Boomer setup for passengers. See more »
The CGI, was pretty cool and stayed true to the original concept, The initial nuclear holocaust is done particularly well and portrays the scale much better than in the series.
Galactica's strength right throughout the run (IMO), came from the character arcs, the writing and of course the portrayal by the actors. This is where The Plan wins my vote, it fully realises and better portrays the true nature and motivations of the Cylon model characters. Dean Stockwell as Cavil is brilliant. I was a bit disappointed with his character in the series, I thought he was more sarcastic than actually evil, the story certainly needed a true villain, however in The Plan he doesn't disappoint.
Sure there's a lot of re-cycled scenes but who cares, if you're getting a new dimension to the story it's all good.
Big thanks to Eddie Olmos & Jane Espenson for giving us this additional dimension.
Also I love the way, in the directors commentary, that Eddie makes a real effort to try and thank every last film crew member, you can tell that he is a really nice, genuine guy and cares passionately about the Galactica brand.
