However, when the planet was discovered, humanity was forced to learn to live under Cylon occupation. As Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan) and Chief Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) organize an insurgency, the Cylons campaign for peaceful co-existence�while eliminating anyone showing signs of resistance. As life among the Cylons becomes more and more unbearable, two former members of Galactica's fleet - lifelong friends Jammer (Dominic Zaprogna) and Duck (Tucker Clellan) - must decide whether resistance or compliance is in the best interest of humanity. The storyline of the online prequel event will lead viewers seamlessly into SCI FI's season 3 on-air premiere in October.
