Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny, the last batttlestar, Galactica, leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest -- a shining planet known as "Earth".

In January 2006, Rittenhouse Archives will return to the Battlestar Galactica with Battlestar Galactica: Colonial Warriors Trading Cards. This 72-card series will focus on the men and women of the last known battlestar - the friendships, relationships and sacrifices the colonial warriors made in the continual struggle against the Cylons.

Each box will contain 40 packs and each pack will contain five cards. This all-new series will contain 1 hand-signed autograph card and 1 costume card per box!.
