Battlestar Galactica was one of the most successful telefantasy revivals of the early 2000s, gaining the approval of high-profile critics and a host of devoted fans, and continuing to inspire discussion and debate long after its final episode aired. In this book, Alan Stevens and Fiona Moore use behind-the-scenes production material and in-depth analyses of screened episodes and draft scripts to trace the complete history of the reimagined series. They explore how it updated concepts introduced in the original 1978 series to present a television drama that interweaves political and religious themes into the traditional space-opera format in a way that is highly relevant to the 21st Century viewer.

Like the original series, reimagined Battlestar Galactica poses difficult questions about the legitimacy of war, the value of love, the perils of leadership and, ultimately, what it means to be human.

With a foreword by Matthew Bennett, who played Aaron Doral, Cylon Number Five, in the series.
