Battlestar Galactica was created in 1978 by Glen A. Larson. It started out
as a movie then progressed one full season on telivision.
The basis for the series was that of a Human race living upon Twelve
Colonies seeded by the ancient Lords of Kobol. These Humans have fought a
bloody thousand yahren war with the evil Cylons, a tyrannical race of
cyberntic reptiles. Finally, through Count Baltar, the Cylons put forth a
peace offering to the Council of the Twelve. Eager usher in a new era of
peace, the Council sent out a ceremonial vanguard consisting of all twelve
Battlestars (massive vessels capable of launching large amounts of firepower
and fighter craft) to welcome the Cylons. But Baltar had betrayed his own
people, aiding the Cylons into baiting the twelve Battlestars into an
ambush, that would quickly be followed by the destruction of all Twelve
Colonies. Only the canniness of Commander Adama aboard the Battlestar
Galactica kept his vessel from being destroyed in the Battle. He fled back
to the Colonies hoping to prevent the destruction, but he was too late, the
Colonies were no more. He sent out a call to any and all survivors of what
became known as the Great Betrayal to rally at Caprica in any ships they
could find to set off on a journey to forever escape the Cylon tyranny and
find a place to reseed the Human race. Adama's vision was of a planet seeded
by the mythcal Lost Thirteenth Tribe of Kobol, "...in a galaxy much
like our own, on a planet caled...Earth."
After the end of the one season run of Battlestar Galactica, the show's
creators launched a second season spinoff called Galactica 1980.
The basis for this brief series was that many years after setting off on its
quest, the Battlestar Galactica finally reaches Earth, in the Earth year
1980. Galactica 1980 lacked many of the original characters of Battlestar
Galactica, and was no where near as popular to the fans as was the original
A sudden unexpected growth in Battlestar Galactica fandom over the past few
years caused an interest in reviving Battlestar Galactica in either movie or
series form. There are two revival attempts currently in the works. The
first is spearheaded by BSG creator Glen Larson, and consists of a movie
featuring a new cast of characters and the long presumed destroyed
Battlestar Pegasus. Fans are not as excited about this revival attempt as
they are for the one being led by former series star Richard "Apollo" Hatch.
Hatch is planning a new BSG movie and possibly a series to follow, that will
have a mix of the popular old characters and some fresh new faces as well.
Richard Hatch has constructed a very EXCELLENT trailer of what he wants BSG to look like in the future to help sway Universal to get his way. He usually shows it at the various cons he appears at to a very satisfied audience. However, Glen larson still claims to have rights to BSG. He and the powers that be at Universal will be sitting down together on May 25, 2000 to try to hammer out an agreement amicably. If they succeed, BSG comes back in one form or another. If they fail, BSG is tied up with the lawyers for a few years. JOIN ME IN HOPING THEY SUCCEED AND RICHARD'S VISION OF BSG COMES TO LIGHT!!!

12 Worlds is a Battlestar Galactica RPG group. This group has several chapters of members who come together to roleplay their chosen characters, who lived twenty yahren before the Great Betrayal. Here is some basic info on the theme of 12 Worlds...
If you're looking at this web page, then you probably already know about Battlestar Galactica. If not, then all I can suggest is that you bug someone who has some of the episodes on tape to borrow some and watch them. They're very high quality sci-fi. Once you're familiar with Battlestar Galactica, then it should be fairly easy to understand the premise of 12 Worlds. What led up to the destruction of the Colonies? What we've done is turn back the clock 20 yahrens prior to the destruction of the 12 Colonies of Man to examine the sequence of events that led up to the Great Betrayal. However, it has occured to me that as we get to the Great Betrayal, we may have rewritten history to the point that the Betrayal does not happen. Who knows what will actually happen?

Battlestar MUSH is an on-line Role-Playing game that is set in the Battlestar Galactica universe. The timeline of the MUSH takes place approximately 2 yahren after the destruction of the Twelve Colonies. Players on Battlestar MUSH have the opportunity to have their characters choose one of many careers among the Fleet ranging from Warrior and Council Security to Mafia and entertainer on the Rising Star. Players can receive EP (or Evolution Points) to increase their skills or vital statistics by sending in what are called RP-Logs (basically an individual žepisodeÓ that takes place when several characters interact at the same time) to be judged for exceptional Role-Play. I play two characters on Battlestar MUSH. The first is named Fallon who is a Warrior and the XO of Blue Squadron aboard the Galactica. The second is what is known as a Feature Character, (a character that appeared in the original series who is Role-Played by a player who has demonstrated exceptional Role-Play skills and also went through an application and interview process to play that particular character) named Chameleon, who turned out to be Lt. StarbuckŪs father in the Battlestar Galactica episode "The Man With Nine Lives." As Chameleon is currently portrayed, he lives aboard the Questral and serves the Fleet by completing odd, distasteful or other (il)legal jobs as a Private Investigator.
The Battlestar Galactica is the military center and flagship for the Colonial Fleet. It is here that citizens can train to become Warriors.
