Battlestar Galactica is a classic sci-fi television series that first premiered in 1978 and was created by Glen A. Larson. The series followed the last survivors of the human race, decimated in a millennia-long war with the robotic Cylons, as they journey for the mythical planet Earth on the Galactica. Galactica is the last remaining war vessel. Though the series only aired for one season, it became a cult classic. Years later, it spawned an arguably more well-known TV reboot series of the same name created by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick in 2004. While Lawrence’s movie will strive to stand on its own, he’s too much of a fan not to include some nods to the original series.
