Moore (Carnivale, Roswell, Mission Impossible: 2) and executive produced by Moore and David Eick (American Gothic, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), BATTLESTAR GALACTICA stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award Winner Edward James Olmos as "Commander Adama" and Katee Sackhoff (The Education of Max Bickford) as ace fighter pilot "Starbuck."
