    ABOUT BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE COMPLETE EPIC SERIES

    Battlestar Galactica, the definitive battle between the last surviving human
    colony and an evil robotic race, premiered on ABC in 1978 to an audience of
    65 million viewers. The show remained a top-15 series throughout its brief
    run, and was eventually cancelled due to the prohibitively expensive special
    effects. From legendary television series creator Glen A. Larson (Magnum
    P.I., The Six Million Dollar Man), this science fiction adventure starring
    Lorne Green, Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict quickly established itself as
    an epic and powerful television saga.

    Considered cutting-edge for its time, Battlestar Galactica took home Emmy
    Awards for Outstanding Costume Design for a Series and Outstanding
    Individual Achievement - Creative Technical Crafts.

    Battlestar Galactica, SCI FI Channel Miniseries Synopsis

    It is a time of peace. Earth is a myth. Technology, a fearsome menace. More
    than 40 years after the armistice that ended the Cylon War, the human race
    suffers a sneak attack by a new breed of robots, indistinguishable from
    humans and more deadly than ever. As billions die on the 12 Colonies of
    Kobol, the last hope of humanity lies with the Battlestar Galactica, a
    recently decommissioned warship that has been turned into a flying museum,
    and with the courage and wisdom of Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) and
    President Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell). Without a home, without hope and
    facing extinction, these last remnants of humanity must rely on each other
    for survival as they evade their robotic pursuers.
