In a distant galaxy, twelve planets bearing tribes of the race known as Man have been at war with an alien cyborg race, the Cylon empire, for a millenium. In the measurements used by the Twelve Colonies it is the Yahren 7341, and a treaty of peace is to be signed – a treaty that proves to be a ruse for the largest assault in the history of galactic warfare. With their defending warships destroyed and their homeworld annihilated, the Twelve Tribes gather to their one remaining warship, a battlestar named the Galactica, boarding every assorted star vehicle that will carry them, as their leader, Commander Adama, seeks out the one planet that will protect Man from the predation of the Cylon Empire – a planet called Earth. As their journey proceeds this Fugitive Fleet is closely pursued by forces of the Cylon Empire under the command of human traitor Baltar.

Season 1 Ep.1: The Saga of a Star World Part I
The Cylons arrange a meeting for the purpose of making a truce but little do the humans know that the Cylons wish to destroy them. By the time they work it out it is to late. Only the Battlestar Galactica survives and Commander Adama gathers up all survivors and leads them away from chaos
In a distant star system, the Twelve Colonies of Humanity were reaching the end of a thousand-year war with the Cylons, warrior robots created by a reptilian race which expired long ago, presumably destroyed by their own creations. Humanity was ultimately defeated in a sneak attack on their homeworlds by the Cylons, carried out with the help of a human traitor, Count Baltar (John Colicos). Protected by the last surviving warship, a “battlestar” called Galactica, the survivors fled in available ships. The Commander of the Galactica, Adama (Lorne Greene), led this “rag-tag fugitive fleet” of 220 ships in search of a new home. They began a quest to find the long-long thirteenth tribe of humanity that had settled on a legendary planet called Earth. However, the Cylons continued to relentlessly pursue them across the galaxy. The era in which this exodus took place is never clearly stated in the series itself. At the start of the series, it is mentioned as being “the seventh millennium of time”, though it is unknown when this is in relation to Earth’s history. The implication of the final aired episode, “The Hand of God”, was that the original series took place after the Apollo 11 moon landing in July 1969 (as the Galactica receives a television transmission from Earth showing the landing).
