    ...far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians... or the Toltecs... or the Mayans. Some believe there may yet be brothers of man who, even now, fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens.

    I'm rewatching this for the first time in probably decades. And, frankly, I like it a lot better than the new show. The writing is really good, and it's told in a serial format (more like Stargate SG-1 than Babylon 5, though - where there is a continuing story that ties together the episodes, but not so much that you're lost if you see them out of order).

    It's giving me new respect for the new show, too. Aside from screwing with the characters, you can tell they really put some effort into remaining faithful to the story, and they recreated major events from the original series in the new one.

    If you're a member on tv-vault.org, there are lots of seeds. :wavey:



    Oh yeah, the original music blows away the new series.

    And I can't find a video of the ending credits, where Commander Adama says "Fleeing the cylon tyranny, the last battlestar - Galactica - leads a ragtag fleet on a lonely quest: A shining planet known as Earth."

    :rofl: There's a rich, powerful woman who's blackmailing the normally stoic and composed Adama into courting her. Sound familiar?

    Star Trek:The Next Generation got the idea for Deanna Troi's mother from BSG! :rofl:



    Actually I'm sure that's an old storytelling device, but the parallel here is too strong to be just a coincidence.

    "Burn, Galactica! You're finished, Adama!"
    "SIR IF I MAY..."
    "Not now! I don't want to miss a moment of the last battlestar's destruction!"
    "I REALLY THINK YOU SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT THE OTHER BATTLESTAR"

    Finished the full season of Battlestar Galactica, and just started Galactica 1980. Interesting, lots of changes. They've reached earth, Starbuck and Apollo are gone, and the new star is Boxey all grown up. I guess it took them longer to find earth than they thought it would. :o

    I just realized that Captain Troy (Boxey - Apollo's stepson - all grown up) is the same actor who was Jack Crichton, John's father in Farscape. :bowdown:
