'GALACTICA' ROARS TOWARD STUNNING FINALE

Executive Producers to Conclude the Series With Its Fourth Season

New York, NY � June 1, 2007 � Executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick have decided that season 4 of Battlestar Galactica, SCI FI Channel's Peabody Award-winning original series, will be its last. They will use the 22-episode season, currently in production, to draw the saga of humanity's struggle for survival to a close.

"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and finally, an end. Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms," stated Eick and Moore. "On a personal level, it's been a creative privilege and an honor for all of us who work on the show and we know we'll be lucky to ever see its like again. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there � we're going out with a bang."

"We respect the producers' decision to end the series and are proud to have been the home of this groundbreaking show. We have always known that Ron and David had a plan for 'Galactica' and trust that fans can look forward to a truly amazing final season," stated Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, SCI FI.

Production on the final 22 hours of season 4 is currently underway in Vancouver. An extended two-hour episode, "Razor," will premiere in November 2007, setting the stage for the rest of the season to commence in 2008.

Redefining the space opera with its gritty realism, Galactica's intensity, issues-driven topicality, and command performances have garnered it unprecedented critical acclaim. In addition to winning a prestigious Peabody Award, the series has been honored as one of the 10 Outstanding Television Programs of the Year by the American Film Institute (AFI) for two years running and the #2 sci-fi project � television or film � of the past 25 years by Entertainment Weekly. Battlestar is also responsible for introducing the expletive "frak" into the pop culture lexicon.

Battlestar Galactica is from NBC Universal Television Studio and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Its stellar cast is led by Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Grace Park.
