When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.
Ronald D. Moore cites Peter Pan (1953) as a major influence on this show, specifically the phrase "All this has happened before, and will happen again." Moore found the notion both pessimistic and pragmatic, and worked it into the Cylon mythology.
Doctor Gaius Baltar:
So the fate... of the entire human race depends upon my wild guess.
Despite the fleet population being ~50,000 people, the number on President Roslin's "White Board" is updated to only reflect changes in military/ govt personnel, but not births & deaths of the civilian population at large.
At the end of the closing credits, there is a different, short cartoon skit of the two producers, Ronald Moore and David Eick, which usually ends with one causing the death of the other in some imaginative way.
