The Battlestar Galactica and the Viper fighters are similar in design to the old show, but were revamped for the new show. The Cylon Basetar, Cylon Raider, and Cylon Centurion each had a completely new design for the new show. Also, there are only four ships that appear in the remake but not in the original: “Colonial One” (the transport used by Laura Roslin), the Olympic Carrier, Cloud 9, and Zephyr (the ringed passenger liner).

Battlestar Galactica Overview

Set in a distant solar system 40 years after the end of what’s known as the Cylon War. This war began when humanity, who live in a group of habitable planets called the Twelve Colonies, created machines to make life easier for them: the Cylons. Programmed to be sentient, they were employed to do things from labour to fighting wars. However, the Cylons eventually grew to hate their masters, revolting, thus beginning the Cylon War. The conflict ended when the Cylons agreed to leave the Colonies to make a home on another planet.

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.
