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.
Katee Sackhoff would later star opposite Karen Gillan in Oculus (2013). Karen Gillan achieved fame as Amy Pond, companion to the Eleventh Doctor in the revived series of the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who (2005). In that series, The Doctor fought the evil robots The Daleks and the Cybermen. Karen Gillan would also go on to play the evil half-robotic Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and its sequel Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 (2017).
Lt. Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace:
I have my flaws, too.
Col. Saul Tigh: The difference is my flaws are personal. Yours are professional.
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. Actually, this is not true and Roslin is seen adding the birth of a new born baby in an early episode. Additionally, the 10,000 people lost on New Caprica were mostly civilians.
The second season added the line "47,875 survivors in search of a home called Earth" in the opening sequence starting with Episode #2.1 "Scattered" and decremented it in every subsequent episode based on how many characters were killed off in the previous episode (or occasionally, as when the Pegasus returned, increasing it when the population increases).
For the first season, the British and American versions had different opening credit themes, and in certain American-version episodes, the episode title was shown after the previous episode's recap while in the British version it was not.
