The Twelve Colonies have been engaged in a lengthy war with a cybernetic race known as the Cylons , whose goal is the extermination of the human race. The Cylons offer peace to the humans, which proves to be a ruse. With the aid of a human named Baltar , the Cylons carry out a massive attack on the Twelve Colonies and on the Colonial Fleet of starships that protect them. These attacks devastate the Colonial Fleet, lay waste to the Colonies, and virtually destroy their populations.

Commander Adama brought Chief Galen Tyrol onto Galactica at a time when no other commanding officer would because of a single mistake in the past that cost lives [26].

More detail is given about the mining accident that destroyed Troy : Boomer recalls that a mining accident cracked the dome which was protecting the , inhabitants from the planet's toxic atmosphere; Boomer only survived because she was en route to Caprica at the time for her admissions interview at Colonial Academy [27]. This contradicts Boomer's statements in the Miniseries that Troy was destroyed when she was a little girl, and actually contradicts the beginning of the same paragraph on this page when Boomer says her parents died when she was little.

However, in " Downloaded " she says that her mother gave her present before she left for the Academy. Of course, Boomer was never a real person and her family was never real. The entire procedure of retracting the flight pods takes ten minutes and forty-three seconds. It is said that the planet Ragnar is in the same solar system as the Twelve Colonies [29]. New dialogue is added of Baltar confirming to Roslin that a planet-wide "nuclear winter" is setting in on Caprica and the other Colonies , rendering them uninhabitable [30].

When Boomer finds a ship named " Tauranian ", on-air it was only said that it would help the "thirsty" other ships in the Fleet, but here it is elaborated that it is a tylium refinery ship, and would sate the other ships' "thirst" for fuel, etc. Laura Roslin says that the population of the Twelve Colonies at the time of the Cylon Attack was 23 billion. An early draft of the Miniseries script had a line which was cut from the final version, which said the population was 12 billion.

The abandonment of the Botanical Cruiser and the non-FTL ships is shown from Cami 's perspective not that she dies; she just notices the other ships leaving.

Her doll's name is "Jeannie" [33]. Leoben Conoy claims to Adama that he is a " Gemenon theist " [34].

Dualla is described as having "olive-toned" skin [35] , though usually in print this description is used for a "Mediterranean" complexion. Carver said that he actually struggled mightily to convey the ethnicity of certain characters without resorting to Earth-specific terms which do not apply because the Twelve Colonies are not in contact with or descended from Earth.

For example, at various times, Boomer is referred to as "Asian", or "Oriental", references meaningless in the Colonies. Sometimes he resorts to descriptive writing such as saying that she has epicanthal folds around her eyes. A new scene is added of Commander Adama struggling to walk back from his fight with Leoben Conoy to the other Galactica crewmen at the entrance to Ragnar station, and being found just as he collapses [36].

Better than The Wire?

A new scene is added where Billy Keikeya gives Roslin advice. Roslin recalls that she let the government personnel office pick Keikeya and thus hadn't met with him in person before he was hired, and that Keikeya won a "Siltzer Prize for writing a paper on Diplomacy and Leadership Models" [37].

Baltar recalls that he was actually given hair and skin samples from various people and briefly tested them. As spectrographic analysis yielded no results, he simply chose to lie about them. In the Miniseries it is somewhat implied that he didn't even perform such preliminary tests [38]. Brief new dialogue is added between Adama and Tigh, agreeing that Roslin is the lawful president and they should follow her orders [39].

Doral says that he is from "Moasis": on the Miniseries DVD, the subtitles for " Oasis " were incorrectly transcribed as "Moasis" it's really just that "from" ends with an "m" and slurs into "oasis" [40].

The Red Line is defined as the distance beyond which jump calculations are too uncertain, too risky for a single FTL jump [41]. This definition is also given in the original draft of the Miniseries and actually later confirmed as correct.

The Prolmar Sector is said to be roughly 30 light-years away from Ragnar [41]. Gaeta announces that 43 Vipers have returned aboard, not including the two that Apollo and Starbuck return in [42].
