For 40 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. But in those years, the Cylons developed new Cylons that looked and acted like humans, with one goal in mind: to destroy all humanity! When they suddenly attacked the Twelve Worlds, humanity's extinction seemed inevitable. 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. Commander William Adama, himself set to retire, had but one course: to marshal the meager forces available, a ragtag crew of misfits and green recruits, to prevent their enemy from wiping out the last vestiges of the human race. But the Cylons, stronger, smarter, and driven to destroy their creators, may just be too powerful for them and all of humanity to survive. Based on the teleplay written by Ronald D. Moore and Christopher Eric James; based on a teleplay by Glen A. Larson.
Outstanding - well worth purchase
I would highly recommend this audiobook. I have listened to almost all of the Star Wars audiobooks (as well as a variety of other science fiction pieces), and Battlestar Galactica is a superior work, both because it so closely tracks with the television series broadcast in terms of plot presentation, but also because the characters are developed sufficiently to generate a visceral connection (yes, by implication I am suggesting that another series contains extremely flat characters).
