Sci Fi Previews Galactica, Stargate January Premieres

As any Battlestar Galactica fan will tell you, we’re in a dry spell at the moment – it’s that long “midseason” break that the Sci Fi Channel specializes in where you get the first chunk of a show’s season of episodes, then have to wait months for the second set from the year. Stargate fans are enduring the same wait at the moment apparently, though whether said wait is worth it in that case is another matter entirely.
Anyhow, the Sci Fi Channel has just sent us a press release with loglines and synopses for the midseason premieres of Galactica and both Stargates, all of which are set to debut on Friday January 6. So here they are:

Battlestar Galactica – “Resurrection Ship, Part 1”

Logline: A military power struggle threatens to escalate into all-out war as the Battlestars Galactica and Pegasus attempt to join forces to destroy a critical Cylon target: a “Resurrection” ship.
Synopsis: Lt. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) prevents a potentially deadly face-off between the Battlestars Galactica and Pegasus when she arrives at the last minute bearing stunning recon photos of the Cylon “Resurrection” ship. Unable to resist this tempting target, Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos) and Admiral Helena Cain (Michelle Forbes) establish an uneasy truce as they agree to prioritize the destruction of the “Resurrection” ship, tabling their conflicts, for now. But Adama remains distrustful, as he learns that Cain's survive-at-all-costs attitude saw Pegasus abandon its civilian fleet months ago. Disturbed by this news, President Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) believes that as soon as the Resurrection ship is destroyed, Cain will jettison Galactica's civilian fleet. As the power struggle continues with Cain, Adama must make an impossible decision, on the eve of a battle that could change the face of the Cylon war.

Looks outstanding! An I won't be able to see it, as that I'm studying abroad in London... Reviews and summaries of episodes are welcome!
