Running low on fuel, the Battlestar Galactica receives the help of the supposedly lost Battlestar Pegasus which is taking the offensive with the Cylons.
"Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack" was given a limited theatrical release in 1979, making it a sequel of sorts to the theatrical version of the series pilot. No explanation, however, is given for the appearance of John Colicos as Baltar, who was killed off in the first film.
