Following a devastating terrorist attack, which robbed both of them of loved ones, two families – the Graystones and the Adamas – play key roles in the birth of the Cylons, in Aubuchon and Moore’s sadly short-lived prequel to Battlestar Galactica (2003-2009), which deftly mixes science fiction and family drama against a backdrop of religious fundamentalism and organised crime.
