    Ok,I have just finished watching 4th season-what should I watch now?
    There is few spin-offs and closely related series and I would like someone experienced to advise what should I watch first?
    Thank you.

    Okay, so the 'canon' media of the reboot BSG universe includes:

    • 2003 "Battlestar Galactica" miniseries
    • 2004-2009 "Battlestar Galactica" TV series
    • 2006 "The Resistance" webisodes
    • 2007 "Razor" TV movie + "Razor flashbacks" clips (the "Razor flashbacks" are available as a separately playable feature in the Bonus features on the Razor DVD/BD)
    • 2009 "The Face of the Enemy" webisodes
    • 2010 "The Plan" TV movie
    • 2010 "Caprica" TV series
    • 2012 "Blood & Chrome" webseries/TV movie (originally released as webisodes, later edited together and aired/sold as a TV movie)


    As you have already seen the main series, you're really not going to be spoiled by anything else you watch from the franchise, so don't worry too much about what order you decide to approach those materials.

    If it helps, the chronology runs:

    58 years before the Fall
    Caprica: Season 1

    42 years before the Fall, during the First Cylon War
    Blood & Chrome

    40 years before the Fall, during the First Cylon War
    Razor flashbacks

    The Fall and the First Exodus
    Battlestar Galactica (miniseries)
    BSG: Season 1
    BSG: Season 2 (Episode 1 "Scattered" to Episode 17 "The Captain's Hand")
    Razor
    BSG: Season 2 (Episode 18 "Downloaded" to Episode 20 "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part 2"

    The Occupation
    The Resistance
    BSG: Season 3 (Episode 1 "Occupation" to Episode 4 "Exodus, Part 2"

    Second Exodus
    BSG: Season 3 (Episode 5 "Collaborators" to 18 "The Son Also Rises")

    The Final Five and the search for Earth
    BSG: Season 3 (Episodes 19-20 "Crossroads")
    BSG: Season 4 (Episode 1 "He That Believeth in Me" to Episode 11 "Sometimes a Great Notion")

    Despair and Salvation
    The Face of the Enemy
    BSG: Season 4 (Episode 12 "A Disquiet Follows My Soul" to Episode 19-21 "Daybreak")


    Lastly, the TV movie "The Plan"...it spans the entire run of the BSG series, so you can watch it whenever. For my $0.02 though, it's really bad, so I recommend skipping it entirely. And I say that as a diehard fan of this universe. I also usually skip "Blood & Chrome" because it sucks too....but it doesn't suck quite so badly as "The Plan."

    Not the same I know, but if you game at all I recommend checking out the strategy game Battlestar Galactica Deadlock. You can get it for PC, PS4 or XBox One and it takes place during the first Cylon war when the colonies are at their lowest point and you have to build up your forces to drive back the Cylons.

    Hmm... I disagree but I guess this movie was a substitute for the shortened last season, so I can understand your reticence. It just sucks that literally every single spin-offs were taken off the air prematurely. BSG last season, then Caprica, then B&C which I had really high hopes for. I really wanted to see the First Cylon War in action.

    But to answer OP's question... once you watched all that... the only thing you can do is curl up in a ball and cry because nothing of the like of BSG will ever be seen again!

    I actually bought the game during Winter Steam sales, but never installed it. Did you try it yourself?
    Spoiler:
    I don’t want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can’t even express these things properly, because I have to—I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language, but I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I can know much more.

    I'm not sure I'd call 20 episodes (21 if you count the double-length "Daybreak, Part 2" as two) a "shortened" season

    I do really wish Seefee hadn't been so bloody cheap and just given them the two seasons they wanted after Season 3, though. Season 4 was....a lot. Would've been nice if they'd had two years to tell all that story, as RDM wanted, rather than him having to condense all that down into one.

    Yeah. Haven’t completed it but I got quite far. It’s a bit repetetive action wise. I recommend getting the DLC’s for it cos it makes things a lot more varied. Particularly Broken Alliance (I think that’s the name) because it deals with a lot of Colony politics and you end up fighting against other colonial ships (You also get another class of Battlestar too which is awesome). Once you get the tactics down on how to deal with the early game you can progress pretty quick but the later game will push you pretty hard and you can get some really epic battles that make you really feel like you’re fighting for your life.

    The combat also looks gorgeous and very cinematic. You have the option at the end of the battle of replaying it in real time and it plays back in full BSG style shaky cam glory.

    The ships you get are all fairly specialised and serve their own funtion and early on you’ll find you’re a bit limited to what you can do but in the later game when you have gun ships and missile boats and battlestars and so on you can really shake things up. And the nice thing is that you get access to new ships just when you start getting bored of the old tactics you were using so you get to shake things up a bit.

    It’s not a perfect game. The reptetiveness can be an issue but it definitely feels like a solid BSG game and you get a real sense of atmosphere. Particularly when the Cylons start bringing out the Basestars.

    Also what I’d recommend given the limited amount of BSG content available is to consider getting into The Expanse next.

    I am so glad that you mentioned "The Expanse"!
    To be honest it's rather obvious that BSG fans would find it very interesting.
    In my opinion it's the best scifi series ever.

    Thank you very much DigiFluid for your so detailed answer!
