The Science Fiction series Battlestar Galactica first screened on US TV in 1978 and ran for 34 episodes. The groundbreaking show, with its dramatic premise, all-star cast and sensational space adventure, acquired a huge popular following and quickly became a best-loved show among fans of science science fiction and beyond. The show returned to TV screens in 2003 in a critically acclaimed and award-winning reimagined series, with Time Magazine naming it one of the '100 Best TV Shows of All Time.'

Each ship is illustrated in CG artwork, including original visual effects models made for the TV show, alongside detailed technical specifications, service history, and annotated views of the ships features.
