Battlestar Galactica: The Original Series:
The Twelve Colonies are looking for one thing: peace. They have been at war for centuries with their enemies, the Cylons. Now it seems like they are on the dawn of a new era as a peace treaty is about to be signed. Sadly, it is not to be as on the night before the signing ceremony an aggressive act is undertaken by the Cylons against the Twelve Colonies. The attack comes as a complete surprise and is so devastating that it destroys the Colonies’ home planets along with most of their military forces. A single ship, the Battlestar flagship Galactica, survives and sets about trying to help the remaining Colonists. After the initial shock a plan is devised to set out for the far off planet of Earth.
