THE CYLONS HAVE REBELLED
Four years of war and a steep price in human lives have not been enough to unlock a deadly stalemate. The Colonials have countered all the Cylon’s offensives so far, but no decisive victory was achieved.

The secret, cunning plan she has conceived could turn the tide of the war forever…
