Moore and David Eick serve as guides, providing insights and revelations about the critically acclaimed series.

Battlestar Galactica: The Phenomenon is a celebrity-studded celebration of the show’s impact on pop culture. Actor Seth Green, country music’s Brad Paisley and Talk Soup’s Joel McHale, among others, will wax poetic about the series.

Galactica's crew, rocked by Starbuck's sudden and mysterious return from the dead -- and her claims that she has been to Earth and can lead them there -- attempts to make sense of the inexplicable. Meanwhile, four member of the fleet are still reeling from the revelation that they are are Cylons and have been all along.
