Battlestar Galactica: Revisit the classic sci-fi on the Horror Channel

Horror Channel blasts off with Battlestar Galactica at 8pm on weekdays from Wednesday 24 March until 10 May. So say we all.

Battlestar Galactica

Those shiny humanity destroyers, the Cylons, are back as Horror Channel presents one of sci-fi’s most iconic TV franchises, Battlestar Galactica.

Blasting its way on to our TV screens throughout spring, discover or re-watch the original 1978-1979 series of Battlestar Galactica now and check out the trailer from the Horror Channel below…

The Emmy-winning show depicts the epic futuristic battle between the last remaining population of humans and their evil robotic nemeses – the Cylons. Spiralling through space on their titular fleet, the human forces, led by Commander Adama (Lorne Greene), search the Universe for the last known planet refuge – Earth.

The series stars Richard Hatch as Captain Apollo (a role that earned him a Golden Globe nomination for best actor in a television series), and Dirk Benedict as Lieutenant Starbuck, the womanizing, cigar-smoking, card playing and incredibly skilled Colonial Warrior.

Although the series was cancelled after 24 episodes, the series has endured with a write-in campaign reviving the show as Galactica 1980 with ten episodes. Books have also been written continuing the stories and Battlestar Galactica was remade in the early 2000s with a reimagined miniseries and a weekly series.

Now, fans and newcomers alike have the chance to go back to where the legacy started with Horror Channel from March with a reshowing of the original series on weekdays until May. Find out more here.

Battlestar Galactica will be aired at 8pm on weekdays from Wednesday 24 March until the 10 May on the Horror Channel.
