Battlestar Galactica was a
science fiction TV series that aired from 1978 to 1979.
The spin-off series Galactica 1980 aired for one season in 1980.
Many of you will remember the opening line of TV show:
"There are those who
believe...that life here began out there, far across the
Universe...with tribes of humans...who may have been the
forefathers of the Egyptians...or the Toltecs...or the
Mayans...that they may have been the architects of the
Great Pyramids...or the lost civilizations of Lemuria...or
Atlantis. Some believe that there may yet be
brothers of man...who even now fight to
survive—somewhere beyond the heavens!"
There were a number of
different toys you could buy based on the show, such as the the
models of the Colonial Viper and Cylon ship. Some of you
may remember that these toys were later recalled after a kid
choked on one of the spring loaded projectile missiles.
Other toys included action figures, board games, puzzles, lunch
boxes, and tons more.
