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!
