The remnants of the ragtag fleet and the battle-scarred Galactica have escaped the clutches of the Cylons and warped
into an unknown quadrant of the galaxy. It is a pocket of null-space in which their stardrives will not work. To make
matters worse, the recent conflicts have left many wounded and medical supplies are critically low . . . as are the fleet's
food resources and fuel supplies.
While scouts venture forth in search of a habitable planet, the civilian population of the fleet rebels. Fights over the dwindling supplies
break out among civilian factions, and the military is called upon to restore order, which only serves to heighten the tensions. And,
once again, accusing fingers are pointed squarely at the man whose responsibility it is to assure the safety and well-being of all:
Apollo. Even members of the Galactica's bridge crew turn against him.
Adding to the growing tensions is the fact that Troy and Dalton, Trays and Boomer-the planetary search parties- are missing. But the
real stunner is the revelation that Casseopia is pregnant, and that she has acknowledged Apollo as the father!
Apollo and Athena are relieved of their commands and thrown into the brig. Civilians take over and chaos reigns- just in time for the
Cylons to arrive. And soon after the Cylons, the even more deadly, alien Chitain show up. Apollo must somehow regain command of
the fleet, organize a fight against the Cylons and Chitain, find a way to resupply the fleet and devise an escape route from the pocket
of null-space in which they are stuck, before it implodes and destroys everything and everyone caught in it.
Have the Galacticans truly found their 'paradise' among the stars?
Apollo thinks so, as they journey to a mysterious planet called
Gemon, located through spatial coordinates vividly imprinted in
Apollo's mind. Will the fleet stay and make this inviting, verdant
planet their final home?
It looks that way, until the traitor Baltar
begins having nightmares about a new race of Cylons, more evil
and deadlier than ever before a Cylon race with superior
technology, warships and weaponry.
"Battlestar Galactica: Destiny "
Desperate to leave a planetary system before its sun collapses, the ragtag fleet of Galacticans discovers that only two-thirds of the
fleet's population can be carried to their next destination. The remainder are doomed to be incinerated when the sun blows off its
outer layers and decimates all life in the solar system. Those to remain behind are chosen by lottery: Starbuck is one of them.
