�The Series Sci-Fi Fans Have Been Dreaming About� � TV Guide

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- August 31, 2005 -- The complete first season of Battlestar Galactica, Sci Fi Channel's intense, action-packed epic, arrives on DVD September 20, 2005, in Dolby 5.1 for the first time, just as the show's Season Two finale airs on September 23rd. The five-disc set is brimming with over 12 hours of content, including both the complete dramatic 13-episode season of the Hugo Award-winning show and the four-hour, TV mini-series that launched the 2003 series juggernaut. Battlestar Galactica is a gripping drama about survival. When the Cylon robots rose against their human creators, they launched a devastating nuclear attack that left less than 50,000 human survivors. Now these last remnants of humanity are on the run and searching for a new place to call home � a mythical planet called Earth. A payload of extras catapults viewers into Battlestar Galactica's fast-moving, perilous world, allowing fans to relive the exciting origins of this critically acclaimed drama.

Stellar bonus features include one of three collectible DVD-exclusive trading cards, never-before-seen deleted scenes from the show, a pilot commentary by director Michael Rymer and executive producers David Eick and Ronald D. Moore, a photo presentation of conceptual sketches from the series, eight compelling behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a special "Battlestar Galactica: The Lowdown" featurette. Battlestar Galactica: Season One is priced at $59.98 SRP.

AN EPIC STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL

Executive Producers Ronald D. Moore (Carnivale, Roswell) and David Eick (American Gothic, The Agency) have reinvented the 1970's cult classic series Battlestar Galactica as a daring 21st century adventure with mind-blowing special effects, groundbreaking visuals and complex characters that add up to what the Chicago Tribune called "a great premise, gritty atmospherics and terrific outer space action scenes." The out-of-this-world cast includes Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, "American Family") as Commander William "Husker" Adama and Mary McDonnell (Dances with Wolves, Independence Day) as President Laura Roslin, who together must lead the intrepid survivors to safety. Also featured in the show's dynamic cast are Katee Sackhoff (Halloween: Resurrection), Jamie Bamber (Band of Brothers), James Callis (Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason), Tricia Helfer (Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Charlie's Angels) and Grace Park (Romeo Must Die).

SYNOPSIS

In this bold re-imagining of a classic series, mankind teeters on the edge of extinction. Forty years after the Cylon Wars, humanity's deadliest enemy has re-emerged with a vengeance. In a sudden, devastating nuclear attack, the robot Cylons � some of whom have taken human form � wipe out millions of people. Only a ragtag fleet of Colonial forces is left to shepherd humanity's few survivors to safety. Commander William Adama (Olmos), a veteran of the Cylon Wars, finds himself the highest-ranking military official left alive. Education Minister Laura Roslin (McDonnell), 43rd in the line of succession, ascends to the presidency. And the Battlestar Galactica, a relic ship slated to become a museum installation, is reactivated to once again face humanity's greatest nemesis. With waning supplies, weapons and hope, Commander Adama and President Roslin realize that their problems are far greater than the immediate threat of Cylons. On their shoulders rests the very survival of humankind.
