Created by Glen A. Larson
1978 • TV-PG • English • 60 min.
Producer Glen A. Larson took to the post-Star Wars airwaves with two sci-fi TV shows — his Buck Rogers reboot on NBC, and this ABC show about a ragtag group of humans on the run from the evil robot Cylons. While Buck is going for more of a Han Solo vibe (colorful and fun-loving), Galactica is a Luke Skywalker kind of show, earnest and (generally) serious. That said, Galactica does have its own Han Solo-type character in Starbuck, the hotshot spaceship fighter pilot who enjoys gambling and flirting with women.
Cast: Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict
