Hot on the heels of of Battlestar Galactica: Season Zero comes yet another BSG story that gives us bigger insight into the events leading up to the attack on Caprica.

Issue #1 of the new Battlestar Galactica: Origins comic book series explores the origins of Gaius Baltar and his life and loves that lead up to the second Cylon War. Fans of both Sci-Fi’s re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television series and Dynamite’s New Battlestar Galactica comic books series know Gaius Baltar as the brilliant computer scientist who unintentionally brought about the near-annihilation of the human species. Of course, where Gaius Baltar is found, that sexy cylon known as Six is sure to be close at hand, haunting and influencing his fear of discovery.

Considering Sci-Fi is ending Battlestar Galactica this year, Dynamite Entertainment could really rack up the bucks if they followed up next year with Battlestar Galactica: Season 5.

Take the jump for the two covers of the four issue series.

Writer: Kevin Fahey


Battlestar Galactica: Origins arrives in November for $3.50.
