If you've seen the reboot of Battlestar Galactica, you know a lot of the backstory was revealed over time, and some not until the very last scene. Now that we can see it all in hindsight, it may still be a little confusing. That's why this timeline by Billy Ray Stephens Jr. is so useful. It breaks down the history of mankind, the angels, and the Cylons, from the very dawn of humans leading all the way up until the end of the series...and beyond.

(Note: This does contain spoilers if you haven't seen the show)


As is often the case with these, there are some mistakes pointed out, thanks to Reddit. A few notes:
  • It doesn't mention the exodus of the 13th tribe from Kobol two thousand years before the humans left. 
  • It implies that humans aided in the construction of the Temple of Hopes, when we know it was constructed by the 13th Tribe on their way to Earth.
  • The Colonies were established 2,000 years before the Fall, not three. Also, the Cylon War armistice was reached forty years before the Fall, not twenty
  • It's Caprica-6, not 8.
  • Also, it was Tigh and 6 who had a pregnancy/miscarriage, not 8.

Yes, it was convoluted, but at least get it right, folks.

I still have a thing for the original, I didn't watch this faithfully.

Probably should do your homework before you make an infographic.

I'm sure this thing is awesome, but it's also a pain to read. I know I listed this as my cancel-early series, but I loved how it ended. Especially the Hendrix. You can't go wrong with the Hendrix. (Especially when it's really Bob Dylan.)

They are showing the updated version over here in the UK. I fondly remember the original and I'm not sure about this version. The original version was of course, this : "Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny, the last Battlestar, 'Galacticanada', leads a ragtag, fugitive fleet, on a lonely quest—for a shining planet known as Earth." After all, Commander Adama aka Lorne Greene was Canadian. Just like Captain Kirk is Canadian. Canada pretty well sorted out the universe, eh. Sorry, I'm rambling! :) Gary
