A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
A scientist who has created a super helicopter has defected to Libya and taken the machine with him. A secretive government agency hires an ex-Vietnam War pilot to go to Libya, steal the chopper and bring it back.

The Battlestar Galactica encounters the Battlestar Pegasus, which they thought to be destroyed. The Pegasus is commanded by one of their most celebrated warriors, Commander Cain. Cain is a strategic genius, but is bent on destroying the Cylons while Adama is happy to acquire fuel and escape, thus keeping his fleet alive to find Earth. When Cain sabotages a mission to obtain fuel, the Galactica and Pegasus are forced to attack a Cylon Base World and three Baseships. While the Galactica stays on to attack the planet, the Pegasus leaves to engage the Baseships (against orders). After the battle, the Pegasus just keeps on going into deep space and is never heard from again. The Galactica gets the fuel they need and the fleet continues its journey, looking for Earth.Written by

One brief scene does not appear in the original TV series, showing a pair of Cylon centurions walking down a corridor which appears to be the same set used for the Draconia in "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century." See more »
Cain sends the Pegasus through a bright starfield after Baltar's base ship. According to the dialogue, the Pegasus is traveling alone at this point. However, the exterior shots in this sequence show the battlestar being followed by at least half a dozen other ships. (These shots are actually of the Galactica leading the fleet through the Nova of Madagon, from "Saga of a Star World"). In the "Living Legend" episodes from which Mission Galactica was derived, the sequence is different and does not show this goof. See more »
Sir, long-range scanners pick up an unbelievable number of enemy craft on their way.
Prepare coordinates to intercept.
You mean lead them off, hit and run.
I mean intercept. Go through them.

Constructed from three Battlestar Galactica series episodes, "The Living Legend: Parts1 & 2" and "Fire In Space", edited together to seem like one story. See more »
This film was edited from the episodes LIVING LEGEND parts 1 and 2 and FIRE IN SPACE. MISSION GALACTICA is ok as a film, but is nothing more than edited tv footage. The story revolves around the Galactica finding another Battlestar called the Pegasus and a fierce battle the two warships must fight over two planets in a system of planets controlled by the cylons. The film features LLOYD BRIDES as Cain the commander of the second battlestar who is essentially a celestial Patton. The film also focuses on the clash between the comand styles of Adama and cain. MISSION GALACTICA makes for fine family viewing. If the film were to get a MPAA rating it would be G.
