The original Battlestar Galactica ran for a single season from September, 1978 until April, 1979. The show was created by Glen A. Larson and starred Lorne Greene as Commander Adama, Richard Hatch as Capt. Apollo and Dirk Benedict as Lt. Starbuck.
I can remember eagerly awaiting and watching the first episode of Battlestar Galactica and making sure to watch it each week. It was the closest thing we kids had to Star Wars on TV. Galactica 1980 continued the series story and I watched that too – only not as religiously. It didn’t have quite the same magic.
