The Galactica, a futuristic aircraft carrier the size of a small city, careers through a distant starfield followed by a convoy of bizzare space vehicles, all fleeing the destruction of the human race. Led by Commander Adama ( Lorne Greene), these survivors have started on a journey to a thirteenth sister colony in a distant galaxy star system -a planet called Earth. Battlestar Galactica follows these intersteller refugees and their battles with their enemy - the dreaded, lizard-like Cylons. The extraordinary special effects are provided by John Dykstra, an Academy Award winner for his work on Star Wars.
