Galacica 1980 Trivia

Lorne Greene (Adama) and Herbert Jefferson Jr. (Boomer) are the only regular cast members from the original Battlestar Galactica (1978) to appear in this sequel series. As a last ditch effort to raise ratings, the producers brought back Dirk Benedict as Starbuck for one episode.

At the end of several episodes a message appeared on the screen that said: “The United States Air Force stopped investigating UFOs in 1969. After 22 years they found no evidence of extra-terrestrially visits and no threat to national security.”

Capt. Troy was the same character as Boxey (Apollo’s adopted son) from the original Battlestar Galactica (1978), twenty years later.

Humanoid Cylons were first seen on Galactica 1980 not the (2003) reimaging of the Battlestar Galactica series produced Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.

Galacticans have no fingerprints – as revealed by the arrest of Troy and Dillon.

Before her job at United Broadcasting – Jamie Hamilton worked in Reno.

Commander Xavier time travelled back to 1944 Nazi Germany’s town of Peenemunde to assist in the V2 development. He arrived there shortly before D-day, possibly in late-May 1944.

The Nazi General Jodl was portrayed examining the V2 test in 1944. The ‘real’ General Jodl later signed the Nazi surrender to the Allies, thus ending the European part of WWII.

Troy, Dillon and Jamie Hamilton rescued a group of Jews in Germany – en-route to concentration camps – during the initial hours of the D-Day landings.

During the attack on the Gemeni freighter (aka the schooling ship) one of the Cylon attack craft is actually the newer-advanced ship design used in the later episode, “Night the Cylons Landed”. The scene featuring the attack sequence is used twice from one angle and then reversed in another angle. It last about 4 seconds each time.

According to the doctor treating the sick Galactica scouts, the kids had different blood cells to Earth humans.

At the end of several episodes a message appeared on the screen that said: “The United States Air Force stopped investigating UFOs in 1969. After 22 years they found no evidence of extra-terrestrially visits and no threat to national security.”

Before flying to the Galactica – Jamie Hamilton thought Troy and Dillon were terrorists, drug runners, and while in space – she thought they were super-NASA or super-CIA people.

Galactica 1980 Overview

Set 30 years after Battlestar Galactica (1978) and guided by the mysterious teenage genius prodigy Dr. Zee, the refugees from the Twelve Colonies finale reach Earth. Commander Adama, now wearing a beard, remains in command of both the Galatica and the fleet, with Col. Boomer as his second in command. Upon realizing Earth of 1980 cannot face the Cylons, and hearing Doctor Zee’s warning that the Cylons have followed them, Adama turns the fleet away, sending his grandson Troy (now the grown up Boxey) and his wingman Dillon to explore Earth and aid in speeding up its technological development. They are helped by a reporter named Jamie Hamilton, and thanks to Doctor Zee some new technology such as personal cloaking shields, flying motorcycles and even a time machine.

But there is a a traitor among the fleet named Xavier who steals a ship and travels into Earth’s past in an effort to speed up Earth’s technological development by introducing technology into the past. His first target is to help the Nazi rocket program, but is stopped by Troy, Dillon and Jamie but escapes their custody and returns to 1980 Earth.

Troy and Dillon are then assigned to protect a select group of Galactican children who will be sent to Earth to learn and live among Earths unknowing population so one day they can be ambassadors between the Twelve Colonies refugees and Earth.

The Cylons find Earth but are also dealing with the evolution of the Cylon race and the first humanoid Cylons!
