Beginning October 2006, the show returns to its Friday night slot with a complete 20-epsode order. One of television's most critically-acclaimed dramas, 'Battlestar Galactica' has captured the minds of a new generation of fans, distinguishing itself with the intensity and present day relevance of its stories and the command performances of its ensemble cast and creative team.

Emmy Award winner Edward James Olmos ("Stand and Deliver," "Blade Runner") stars as Commander Adama, the hawkish military leader of the last surviving battleship. Mary McDonnell (NBC's "ER," "Dances with Wolves") is Laura Roslin, the President, who has her own convictions about how the human race is to survive. Katee Sackhoff ("The Education of Max Bickford") portrays Adama's best pilot, Starbuck. She and Apollo (Jamie Bamber, "Band of Brothers"), face their own set of challenges.

Season 3 promises even more of the drama, intrigue and action that viewers have come to expect from the series. Picking up where last season's cliffhanger finale left off, the Galactica crew discovers a habitable planet, but things become even further complicated when the Cylons, led by Caprica Six (Tricia Helfer) and Sharon (Grace Park), find the planet and offer humanity a stunning proposal of peace. This season, Lucy Lawless joins the cast for a 10-episode arc, reprising her role as D'Anna Biers, a Cylon.
