<p class=MsoNormal>With its fourth season due to air in January 2008, the award-winning <em>Battlestar Galactica</em> continues to be exceptionally popular for non-network television, combining the familiar features of science fiction with direct commentary on life in mainstream America. <em>Cylons in America</em> is the first collection of critical studies of <em>Battlestar Galactica</em> (its 2003 miniseries, and the ongoing 2004 television series), examining its place within popular culture and its engagement with contemporary American society.</p><br/><p class=MsoNormal><em>Battlestar Galactica</em> depicts the remnants of the human race fleeing across space from a robotic enemy called the Cylons. The fleet is protected by a single warship, the Battlestar, and is searching for a "lost colony" that settled on the legendary planet "Earth." Originally a television series in the 1970s, the current series maintains the mythic sense established with the earlier quest narrative, but adds elements of hard science and aggressive engagement with post-9/11 American politics. Cylons In America casts a critical eye on the revived series and is sure to appeal to fans of the show, as well as to scholars and researchers of contemporary television.</p>>
