Out of the blue, the Cylons betray the pact and destroy the Colonies and their entire fleet, except the Battlestar Galactica. Commander Adama summons the few survivors from all the Colonies to follow him on a journey to find the mythical planet Earth. However, they are short of water, supplies and fuel and they head to the planet Carillon to replenish the fleet and get the supplies. Adama’s son, the warrior Captain Apollo, and his partners Lieutenants Starbuck and Boomer destroy the mines left by the Cylons and they reach the planet. They are welcomed by the inhabitants and find the paradise. Meanwhile, the self-serving human leader Sire Uri wants to destroy their arms and live in the Cylon Empire despite the contempt of Adama. Sire Uri decides to give medals to Apollo, Starbuck and Boomer for their bravery on Carillon and invites the warriors to come to the party. However, Adama believes that it is a trap for the Galactica. What can he do?

This is one of my favorite sci-fi shows, but I certainly recognize its flaws.
* the concept
—> I liked the historical context of the 12 tribes of Kobol, the Pearl Harbor-like attack, the “ragtag fugitive fleet” seeking Earth. This really framed the series well.
—> The look of the Ceylon base ships and the bat-wing Ceylon fighters was terrific. I also liked the look of the battlestars and Colonial vipers. The command center of the battlestar seemed believable.
* the casting:
—> Lorne Greene as Adama brings a commanding screen presence
—> Richard Hatch as Apollo is well-cast and believable as a leader/captain of a fighter wing
—> Dirk Benedict as Starbuck the amiable sarcastic sidekick
—> John Colicos as Baltar oozed evil with perfection
—> other minor cast members like Herbert Jefferson Jr as Boomer and Terry Carter as Colonel Tigh were very well cast too
—> I thought the three most visible female characters were all good, though not standout. Maren Jensen, Laurette Spang, and Anne Lockhart just also happened to be beautiful too.
—> visiting cast members like:
——-> Lloyd Bridges as Commander Cain was truly memorable
——-> Patrick McNee as Count Iblis was also highly memorable
——-> Ray Milland and Fred Astaire were good guest stars too
* the costumes
—> I liked the Colonial Warrior uniforms – they still have a style to them today. I liked the Warrior helmets with their Egyptian-like motif.
—> The Ceylon warriors with their shiny armor, had a great look to them too. The red strobe they used for vision was a great menacing concept.
* some episodes with great plot lines
—> the return of Commander Cain and the Pegasus stands out
—> I thought the visit to the “home” planet of Kobol, with its Egyptian motifs, was terrific. This is part of the pilot’s introductory three episodes.
—> I also liked the encounter with the Ship of Lights and Count Iblis – this was especially well done.
* the music – I still like the theme song to Battlestar Galactica
* the behavior of the Ceylons was entertaining. “By your command” spoken in a tinny voice was a favorite.
* some cheesy special effects (by today’s standards)
—> …and reuse of the same special effects
—> why was Count Iblis’ crash site off-color in one moment, and clear blue the next?
* quite a lot of cheesy cringe-inducing dialogue
* the little kid Boxie and his robot dog
* some of the episodes had really horrible plot lines, especially later in the series
—> the Lost Warrior where the kids attack the Ceylon outpost
—> why did Baltar return to the human fleet again?
* the original show was cancelled after one season
* Galactica 1980, the follow-on show in which the battlestar finds earth, was pretty horrible
All in all, I am willing to forgive Battlestar Galactica’s flaws and remember with fondness its strengths.
better story than Star Wars but worse effects
Battlestar Galactica did have a heavy impact on my childhood. I remember all of my friends trying to rebuild Battlestars and Vipers in various designs out of our LEGO space edition tiles. And how much fun it was to blast the other’s ships into pieces! LEGO must have earned millions through us. Never ever has there been another spacecraft as illustrious in design as the Galactica (forget Star Trek’s clumsy saucers). Unfortunately, the special effects appeared a little simple, because they were persistently reused. And YES, another commentator was right: Maren Jenson is THE reason to watch the show! Of course, there are one or two things about the story which are quite dubious. For one, the praised military leadership being better than a civilian one is a little hard-core cold-war belief. And in the series, those partially overemphasized religious elements sometimes got a little annoying in the otherwise splendid science-fantasy plot. But after all, those elements formed a heterogeneous mix promoting tolerance and gave the show its uniqueness. Definitely worth watching!
