Set 30 years after Battlestar Galactica, the Galactica is guided by the mysterious teenage genius prodigy Dr. Zee. Adama, sporting a hideously fake beard, remains in command of the fleet, with Col. Boomer his second in command. Upon realizing Earth of 1980 cannot face the Cylons, and hearing Zee's warning that the Cylons followed them, Adama turns the fleet away, sending his grandson Troy (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 new technology such as personal cloaking shields and flying motorcycles.

This series is FASCINATING if you want to watch something that is so bad, it destroyed a strong franchise for decades. This is a piece of history folks. From the original series, we kids owned the Galactica lunch box, tormented our parents for the toys, and as kids even loved the stupid robot dog. Fandom was strong.

Enter Galactica 1980 and the ensuing obliteration from our hearts. Decades of hatred and ridicule of the franchise ensued, thus making the achievement 25 years later of the 2005 reboot all the more amazing and admirable. But it took TWENTY FIVE YEARS for us to even consider a reboot due to the pox called Galactica 1980.

Side note trivia: Just to be extra cheap and crappy, the geniuses at Universal Studios recycled footage from another horrible movie, "Earthquake (1974)" for the first episode of Galactica 1980 rendering the special effects budget almost zero. And then they repeated the same shots over and over again to save more money and stretch the clock further.... We the audience noticed this, and found it disgusting.

Terrible acting. Bad stories. Should have kept to the tone of the original series
