The Battle of New Caprica is one of the most prominent space battles in the television show Battlestar Galactica, which ran from 2004 to 2009.
The battle was the result of nearly a season’s worth of buildup for the liberation of New Caprica. The Galactica burned into the atmosphere from a FTL jump to deploy their fighters and take on multiple base star. The Galactica are saved when the Pegasus arrives and destroys a basestar, only to be destroyed soon afterwards.
Te Battle of New Caprica has been praised as the finest battle in the entire show and one of the best onscreen space battles in sci-fi television history.
