Overview
The Galactica, a futuristic aircraft carrier the size of a small city, careens through a distant starfield followed by a convoy of bizarre space vehicles, all fleeing the destruction of the human race.

Led by Commander Adama (Lorne Greene), these survivors have started on a journey to a thirteenth sister colony in a distant galaxy star system – a planet called Earth. Battlestar Galactica follows these interstellar refugees and their battles with their enemy - the dreaded, lizard-like Cylons.

The extraordinary special effects are provided by John Dykstra, an Academy Award™-winner for his work on Star Wars.
