New York, NY - September 5, 2006 - The summer may be ending but fans of SCI FI Channel's white-hot original series 'Battlestar Galactica' have reason to celebrate. In a broadcasting first, SCI FI will launch its season online, with one of the most innovative promotions ever - a 5-week, 10-episode online-only prequel "season" called 'Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance.'

Life on New Caprica had held the promise of protection from the Cylons, breathable air and solid land under their feet. However, when the planet was discovered, humanity was forced to learn to live under Cylon occupation. As Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan) and Chief Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) organize an insurgency, the Cylons campaign for peaceful co-existence�while eliminating anyone showing signs of resistance. As life among the Cylons becomes more and more unbearable, two former members of Galactica's fleet - lifelong friends Jammer (Dominic Zaprogna) and Duck (Tucker Clellan) - must decide whether resistance or compliance is in the best interest of humanity. The storyline of the online prequel event will lead viewers seamlessly into SCI FI's season 3 on-air premiere in October.
