Adama records a brief history of the fleet up to this point.
This is just a 3-page retrospective on the events of the single
season of BSG70 on television and the so-called "season two"
stories published in comic book format by Realm Press. The full
title of this retrospective in the Tourbook is
"Previously on Battlestar Galactica".

pilot, "Saga of a Star World" (studied on PopApostle as

The art and narration by Commander Adama on
page 3, panel 3 seems to give us a glimpse of events that would
have occurred in the concluding parts of the never-finished
"Search for Sanctuary"
story. A footnote in this panel tells us that the story would be
concluded in the upcoming Galactica: The New Millennium
anthology series, but that series, unfortunately, produced only
Adama's final line of dialog at the end of
his reminiscence is the same one heard spoken by him at the end
most of the TV episodes: "Fleeing the Cylon tyranny, the last
battlestar, Galactica, leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet
on a lonely quest for a shining planet known as Earth."
