The late seventies saw a resurgence in space opera, that would later be followed up by more 'realistic' shows – this early Battlestar Galactica perhaps was more of an early version of SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis than the later Battlestar series with its theme of ancient civilizations having von Däniken roots out in space. It is interesting that so many names have been reused in the later Battlestar galactica series, such as Adama and Starbuck, although the characters were quite different. The idea of putting Lorne Greene in space served to emphasize the space opera character of the show, space opera often defined as placing a classic western in space. Is it on DVD?
