Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica is an absolutely fabulous science fiction series, which aired for one season in 1978. Six additional shows, of lesser quality, called Galactica 1980 aired in 1980, minus the cast members and most of the other elements that made the show great.

Novels by Richard Hatch and Christopher Golden

Recently, Richard Hatch, who played Captain Apollo in the original series, has been trying to revive the show. To this end, he has written two Battlestar novels (A third is slated to be released in 1999.).

 Battlestar Galactica: Armageddon
Hatch and Golden pick up the story eighteen years after the story in the original series left off. Commander Adama dies and the fleet must choose between Athena and Apollo as his successor while battling the Cylons and Count Iblis.

 Battlestar Galactica: Warhawk
The search for Earth continues.
