Opening Narration: "The great ship...Galactica. Majestic and loving...strong and protecting. Our home for these many years we've endured the wilderness of space...and now we near the end of our journey. Scouts and electronic surveilance have confirmed that we've reached our haven...that planet which is home to our ancestor brothers. Too many of our sons and daughters did not survive to share the fulfilment of our dream. We can only take comfort and strength in that they did not die in vain. We have at last found...Earth." -- read by Lorne Greene

Short Narration: "The great ship...Galactica. Our home for these many years we've endured the wilderness of space...and now we near the end of our journey. We have at last found...Earth." -- read by Lorne Greene

Opening Narration from Spaceball: "The Galactica continues to lead the Cylons away from the planet Earth. But so far, our brother council member, Xavier, who has turned outlaw, continues to ellude us. Two of our most able warriors, Troy and Dillon, remain down on the planet Earth, seeking a place where we can send our young, to prevent their destruction in what we know will be an eminent, and final, Cylon battle. With each day it becomes increasingly difficult for our children to live as Earth's children. Being accustomed to a much denser gravity causes them to display super skills, that are jeopardizing their ability to blend in down on Earth without detection. Still, they must try. Surely they face eminent destruction out in space." --read by Lorne Greene
