When the 1979 sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica was cancelled by ABC, a letter-writing campaign encouraged the network to revive the property, albeit on a less-expensive scale. Set some three decades after the first series, Galactica 1980 stars Kent McCord as Captain Troy, skipper of the titular battlestar. En route to planet Earth, Troy is unable to fend off an attack from the hated Cylons; therefore, he tries to keep his Earthward journey a secret, so that the Cylons will not mount an invasion of the planet. In the opening adventure, Commander Adama (Lorne Greene) wants to offer the advanced technology of Galactica to the scientists of earth, but the villainous Xavier (Richard Lynch) intends to hand over this technology to a group of Nazis. Troy, Lt. Dillon (Barry Van Dyke), and Earth reporter Jaime Hamilton (Robyn Douglas) try to stop Xavier before he can accomplish his nefarious mission.

This is the best space series along with the 1979 series I have ever watched, It is better than Star Wars in my opion and is more oringinal and better than the new series we have now. The Viper Fighters fit well with the Oringinal GAlactica. I just wish they would make a new movie with the return of the BAttle Stars Pegasus.
