The Synopsis for Battlestar Galactica (1978) 720p

The story of how the Twelve Colonies of Mankind are destroyed after 1,000 years of war with the evil Cylon Empire. Through deceit, the Cylons are able to destroy the Colonies' entire fleet, except for the Battlestar Galactica, captained by Commander Adama. Adama gathers up the few remaining humans left on all the twelve worlds and embarks on a journey to find the mythical planet Earth, the supposed thirteenth colony, lost millennia ago when humans first left the motherworld Kobol. With food and fuel running out, the fleet heads for a mineral planet, Carillon, hoping to get what they need. The Ovions, who populate the planet, are being controlled by the Cylons, who set a trap for the Galactica. Under a clever ruse, Adama convinces the Cylons that his pilots are on the surface at a banquet, while the real pilots are at full combat readiness. The fleet gets their food and fuel, and escapes, destroying Carillon and a Cylon Baseship hiding behind the planet.

The Reviews for Battlestar Galactica (1978) 720p

They don′t make them like this anymore.Reviewed byAlcaminhanteVote: 7/10

I first watched this at the movie theater way back in 1978-79, long before i even knew this was made as a television series. And as a kid, who had just seen STAR WARS, and was desperately looking for more of the same, of course i had to love this. In fact, BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA, had more of an impact on my imagination than STAR WARS ever did. I remember that i loved the egyptian look of the helmets and i never forgot that BATTLESTAR GALACTICA movie introduction, where it is mentioned the alien origins of the ancient earth civilizations. This movie got me interested in archeology long before i even knew who Indiana Jones was.

Then the whole series was shown on television here in Portugal in 1983-84, and i remember how disappointed i got, each episode that went by. I was expecting a true development in the story of the 12 colonies, how the earth ended up being colonized, when did they arrived on earth, their relation with egypt and the pyramids, etc. Instead what they did in that series was just action, action and more action, with the same space battle images repeated over and over again. Even if was a teenager i always thought that the stories were too much for kids, when they could have been great if they showed, all that i had in my imagination and i was expecting them to show. And when they created that last serie, about gallactica on earth, i just got extremely disappointed with the whole thing and i never saw any episode, because i felt sad just looking at what they did with such a marvelous concept, wich was present in the original "movie".

So regarding the original "movie". Ok, everybody can say it′s cheesy, but for the time it was incredible. Even today it′s got a great atmosphere. Some of the battle scenes still are a joy to watch. And the imagination in the designs is still fantastic. Some of the interiors might look made of cardboard, but others look very good indeed. And the GALACTICA spaceship is truly a marvelous concept design. The vipers looked very cool and still do, and the Cylon ships are the best menacing fighters ever. To me, even better than the TIE fighters from STAR WARS. Even their starbases had an incredible atmosphere. Then there were the Cylons, wich looked and sounded great and were the perfect enemies for this story. And above all there was the soundtrack. Simply fantastic and for the first time in television we had this type of music from the movies in a series.

I think it′s unfair when people say that BATTLESTAR GALACTICA is awfull, just because it doesn′t look like Matrix in special effects. We have to look at it and remember when it was made. It was a brilliant concept, and i wished there were some more like it.

And as from being just a STAR WARS rip-off, i can′t disagree more. Just because GALACTICA is also a Space-Opera, like STAR WARS is a rip-off of it ? True, it never had been made if it wasn′t for the sucess of Star Wars, but calling it a rip-off is a bit exaggerated. At least BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA had real and original imagination in it′s concept, contrary to STAR WARS. Read the "LORD TEDRIC" books by E.E.DOC.SMITH written in the early 30′s, and you′ll start looking at STAR WARS in another way. Then you′ll appreciate the originality of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA much more.

I just bought it a couple of months ago and i still watch and enjoy it many times. An excellent "movie"

1970s sci-fi, with a little bit of Star Wars plagiarism...Reviewed byrebeljennVote: 6/10

Although it is a little bit of a dated script and obviously copies off of Star Wars (don't those starfighters look an awful lot like X-wings), Battlestar Gallactica is worth a watch if you're a science fiction geek. If you've seen the new version before, you'll be amazed at how different the old version really is. In the old series, action, jokes, and flirting are much more common. The new version relies on political events and characters.

Although this 1978 version of the film moves a little slowly in places, there are the fascinating space battles. The dialog between the characters and some of the comedy is a little dated, however. I would recommend it if you're a fan of this genre.

One of a kind...Reviewed byCaptain SpyroVote: 10/10

That's right, one of a kind. When I first watched this show back a couple of years ago, it just caught me like no other had ever done before. The characters, the settings, the stories, all just magnificent.

One thing a lot of people pick on is the writing. I, myself, do not have a problem with it at all. In fact, I find that the stories make this show one of the most unique sci-fi's ever done. The 12 Colonies of Man all decimated by the Cylon Empire and the struggle of the refugees to survive, all escaping in some 220 refugee ships all being protected by the Galactica herself in search of the planet earth. And let's not forget the other memorable stories, such as the discovery of Commander Cain & the Battlestar Pegasus and when the Galactica found Kobol and discovered some of the origins of men. There's also the stories involving the Ship of Lights, Terra, and other ships from within the rag-tag fleet.

Another highlight of the show is the characters, especially Adama, Apollo, and Starbuck. One could say that Adama was the father figure, the wisest of the group. Then there's Apollo, just one of them good ole boys. And then we have Starbuck, probably the most memorable character from the entire series. And let's not forget the others: Boomer, Jolly, Athena, Cassiopeia, Boxey, Muffit, and last, but definitely not least, Baltar. Yes, this menacing figure is probably the 2nd most memorable face in the series.

And let's not forget the Cylons. These guys were probably one of the biggest money makers of the series back then. Menacing and powerful, they will stop at nothing until the destruction of the human race is complete.

One of the biggest highlights of this production is the music. Who can forget the opening theme? No doubt one of the greatest in all of sci-fi. We also have the Cylon music, very dark and menacing. In this production, Stu Phillips was a genius and he should definitely be commended.

Now, the special effects are something to be admired as well. Created by Star Wars' own John Dykstra, the effects in Battlestar Galactica greatly outshined the rest at that time. Though, the biggest drawback is the constant reuse of special effects footage over and over and over and over again. But it was done to save money, so it's understandable.

Another memorable aspect of the show are the ships themselves. The Galactica, herself, is a huge and powerful vessel, while retaining a charm that few other ships can keep. Probably the most popular ship was the Colonial Viper. While they may resemble the X-Wing Starfighters of Star Wars, the Vipers are unique and special in their own way. Probably the most unique ship in the show was the Cylon Raider. Bat-like in appearance, it was a fierce competitor for the Viper. Then there's the Cylon Basestar, just plain menacing is all that can be said about it. Then there are the other ships: The Rising Star, The Colonial Movers ship, The Celestra, The Prison Barge, The Livery ship, The Gemini Freighter, etc. They all were memorable in their own way.

This show is VERY underrated. A work of art, in my very honest opinion. I give it a 10/10. Extremely brilliant.
