The Original Battlestar Galactica

I am such a huge nerd. I just finished watching the original Battlestar Galactica made in 1978, and I quite enjoyed it. The show is about a group of humans in a galaxy far away (not Star Wars). They are going to sign a peace treaty with the Cylons, a race of machines made by a reptilian race that died a long time ago. On the way to the treaty, the Cylons attack the envoy fleet of battlestars and they also attack the 12 planets on which the humans live on. Only one of the battlestars remained because the leader of the Battlestar Galactica, Commander Adama (played by Lorne Green) was in doubt about the Cylons wanting peace. He was prepared for a fight and managed to save his crew. After the attack, they go to the planets and tell all the rest of the humans to get in any ship they have and go on a journey to find the legendary planet Earth.
This show was pretty awesome. It was like a mix between the original Star Trek and Star Wars, especially with the special effects. Most of the episodes were about Commander Adama's son, Apollo and his buddies Starbuck and Boomer. These three are Warriors and they fly Vipers around space.

I found that Starbuck was pretty good looking in this show. The actor is Dirk Benedict and he also is in the original A-team show which I am watching. Well he was good lucking back in the day. He then got old and didn't age very well.
