Firstly, I was and remain ambivalent on the episode on which this is based. There are certain aspects that I like and then...ugh children. I hate children, especially reading about children and especially children living on their own and fighting and such. So, that remains an aspect which I was less than thrilled with in the book.

However, I think the plot made a tad more sense in the book. Things sort of happen abruptly in the episode without warning, there is much more of a plot progression her

The Young Warriors by Glen A. Larson and Robert Thurston is the fourth book in the Battlestar Galatica series.

Lt. Starbuck crash lands on a swampy planet and discovers a group of children trying to survive while dealing with a garrison of Cylons who want them dead or captured. The story takes place mostly on the planet Antila, a wild planet with telepathic unicorns, ok, that sounds corny but it is actually a decent story that could very well stand on it's own outside of the BSG universe. As with the previous three books this was a fun read that brought back lots of fond memories.

I read this in the 90s. And I loved the book just as much as I loved the old TV series. (Don't get me started on the new crap...)I read this back in the day, when Starback was still a man, full of charm, wit, spirit and mischief.
The story about Miri and the other children was on of my faves. I think it's time for a re-read.

Don't remember a damn thing about the plot. I think I stole it from the Mace-Kingsly school library, so now I have to keep it.
