A novel by Jeffrey A. Carver based on the teleplay written by Ronald D. Moore and Christopher Eric James based on a Teleplay by Glen A. Larson
For forty years, the Twelve Colonies of Man experienced peace, united since the war against the man-made Cylons. The Cylons, mechanical beings created to perform the manual labor civilization required, were gone forever…or so humanity thought.

Only a single warship survived the massive attack: Battlestar Galactica, the oldest ship in the fleet, ready to be decommissioned and turned into a museum.
