A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
The leaders of the Twelve Colonies of Mankind are making plans to sign a peace treaty with their mortal enemies, the Cylon Empire. On the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons betray the pact and destroy most of the Colonies and their entire fleet. Under the command of Commander Adama, the battlestar Galactica leads the remaining Colonial ships into space and seeks out a lost thirteenth colony, which turns out to be Earth. Along the way, the Colonials encounter various races (both friendly and hostile), the legendary human warrior Commander Cain, and the planet Kobol, the motherworld of all the Colonies. All the while, the Cylons - under the command of human traitor Count Baltar - closely pursue this fugitive fleet across the universe.Written by
Except for the pilot "Saga of a Star World" and the subsequent epilogue, John Colicos wore a hairpiece for the rest of the series. No canonical explanation has been given for the green outfit he first wore in "Lost Planet Of The Gods: Parts 1 & 2". See more »
The battle tactic of the Cylons is usually to swoop down on the target in a row, one after the other. On the green radar screen, they are always shown closing in on a wide front, regardless of the formation actually employed. See more »

Two episodes were edited together to form the made-for-video movie Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack. In syndication, the series incorporates the episodes of "Galactica 1980" (1980). See more »
I always wanted to see original version of Battlestar Galactica, i was never impressed by new one, so i finally watched it and i loved it, yes maybe special effects are outdated but still this show has a soul, heart and message, you also really got connected with the characters, and they are all very interesting and cool. The outstanding performance comes from legendary Lorne Greene as Captain Adama, you really have a feeling he is a leader and commander of Galactica, brilliant casting, also Terry Carter as Colonel Tigh is great, also performance from Richard Hatch(Apollo), Dirk Benedict(Starbuck), Herb Jefferson, Jr. (Boomer), John Colicos (Count Baltar), are worth mentioning. Story is solid, i was only disappointed with the ending but they planned to do second season. Loved also the design of spaceships and Cylons, Cylons in original version looked better 100 times than CGI ones in new series, and their vocoder voices just amazing. Through the series in some scenes we see clear moral and ethic messages and influence of Mormon faith(creator of the series was Mormon). I really enjoyed this serial, and really don't care for the new ones, but because of bad reviews i am not planning to watch Galactica 1980. I am recommending this one to all lovers of 70's sci-fi, space opera and generally people interested in retro things. my Grade 9/10.
